GPU Bootcamp is an exciting and unique way for scientists and researchers to learn the skills needed to start quickly accelerating codes on GPUs. Held as a virtual event across two days in October, participants will learn about multiple GPU programming models and can choose the one that best fits their needs to run their scientific codes on GPUs. 

This Bootcamp will cover an introduction to GPU programming using OpenACC, stdpar, Fortran Do-Concurrent and CUDA, and provides hands-on opportunities to learn how to analyse GPU-enabled applications using NVIDIA® Nsight™ Systems. The bootcamp will also cover the PINN approach using NVIDIA SimNet.

Presented by the Institute for Plasma Research (IPR), this event is specifically designed for current IPR cluster users.

Event Format

This two-day online Bootcamp will be hosted in the India Standard Time (IST) zone. All communication will be done through Zoom, Slack, and email. 


  • Basic experience with C/C++ or Fortran. No GPU programming knowledge is required.
  • Presented by the Institute for Plasma Research (IPR), this event is specifically designed for current IPR cluster users.
