3rd-5th April 2023


This is a hands-on hackathon where participants will apply presented techniques to their own codes.

The workshop & pre=event training will cover:

20th-22rd March pre-event online training:

  • Getting Started with OpenMP & offloading
  • AMD Communication Fabrics and GPU-Aware MPI
  • Introduction to Rocprof

3rd-5th April in-person hackathon at UCL with AMD & DiRAC support.


This will be an in-person hackathon, held at UCL. Participants will use AMD’s dedicated development cluster. This will be a pre-event training session on the 20th-22nd of March. This training will be held online.

The workshop will run over 3 days. Each day will normally be focused on a practical session where participants have an opportunity to apply what was taught in the pre-event training to their code. Support will be there from AMD and from DiRAC support teams. During the event, there will be feedback and Q&A sessions to help spread good practice and address any issues.

In the afternoon of the 3-days, teams will be given time to develop a presentation that will be presented by themselves to all participants. It is intended that this will be recorded to help other DiRAC users.

Target Audience

The target audience are researchers who want to:

  • Optimising their code for AMD’s latest GPUs.
  • Run their code efficiently to get the best performance.
  • Learn about and take advantage of the new AMD features and tools.
  • Build links with other research groups and AMDs technical team.


At least one member of a team needs good experience in a programming language. Also in-depth knowledge of your own codes. Technical support can be arranged if required.
