Short NameOpenACC
Type Consortium
Short DescriptionAPI describing a collection of compiler directives to accelerate application.
DescriptionOpenACC is a non-profit corporation founded by the group of companies that developed the OpenACC Application Program Interface specification. OpenACC was formed to help create and foster a cross platform API that would allow any scientist or programmer to easily accelerate their application on modern many-core and multi-core processors using directives.

The OpenACC Corporate Officers are:

President ? Duncan Poole, NVIDIA
Secretary - Michael Wolfe, The Portland Group
Treasurer - David Wallace, Cray Inc.
LocationInternet only (no physical address on site)
Technical ScopeFrom 2.0 doc:

This OpenACC API document covers only user -
directed accelerator programming, where the user specifies the regions of a host program to be targeted for offloading to an accelerator device. The remainder of the program will be executed on the host. This document does not describe features or limitations of the host programming environment as a whole; it is limited to specification of loops and regions of code to be offloaded to an accelerator.

This document does not describe automatic detection and offloading of regions of code to an accelerator by a compiler or other tool. This document does not describe splitting loops or code regions to multiple accelerators attached to a single host. While future compilers may allow for automatic offloading, or offloading to multiple accelerators of the same type, or to multiple accelerators of different types, these possibilities are not addressed in this document.
