Developing Applications with the AMD ROCm Ecosystem


workshop title and organizers' logos

Presented by AMD in collaboration with ENCCS, CSC and the LUMI Supercomputer.

This four half-day online workshop will cover how to develop and port applications to run on AMD GPU and CPU hardware on top AMD-powered supercomputers. Participants will learn about the ROCm software development languages, libraries, and tools. They will also get a developer’s view of the hardware that powers the system. This workshop will focus mostly on how to program applications to run on the GPU.

In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to use the newly installed LUMI-G system.


Participants will be expected to have prior experience developing HPC applications, and some understanding of recent HPC computer hardware and the Linux operating system.
