Introduction to Intel oneAPI 

Start Time: 13:00 End Time: 17:00

DiRAC has teamed up with Intel to deliver 3 afternoons of introductory training on the Intel oneAPI Base Toolkit – a core set of tools and libraries for developing high-performance, data-centric applications across diverse GPU architectures. This will be running virtually on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of May, from 1pm to 5pm, and more details are here.

With recently announced UK government investments into GPU-based compute for AI and simulation, and a more general move towards accelerator based systems, the successful refactoring of CPU-based codes onto GPU architectures can be critical to future performance and portability.

Delivered by experts from Intel and their training partners Codeplay, this 3 afternoon, lecture-based, virtual course will cover some of the essential concepts and introduce basic skills.  The curriculum will include:

  • Intel Advisor Tool
  • C++ to SYCL
  • SYCL Essentials training
  • SYCL ibraries – oneMKL, oneDPL and oneDNN
  • vTUNE 


Registration can be found here: https://dirac.ac.uk/training_events/intel-oneapi-training-2024/ and closes at 5pm on Sunday 12th May

All researchers at any skill-level are welcome, but places are limited so please register soon.
