Intel® Academic Program for oneAPI

Intel connects with universities and students worldwide to evolve the Intel® oneAPI Toolkits and the Data Parallel C++ (DPC++) language through interaction with the academic community. Intel® oneAPI Toolkits enable developers of all types to build, test, and deploy performance-driven, data-centric applications across CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs.

oneAPI Centers of Excellence

A Center of Excellence (CoE) is a university that partners with Intel to drive adoption of oneAPI through strategic code ports, product feedback, curriculum development, instructor certification, and paper publication.

Academic Projects

Efficiency and Productivity for Decision-Making on Low-Power CPU and GPU SoCs

The University of Málaga is researching how to solve the large-scale Markov Decision Process efficiently on low-power computing platforms using 12 different parallel code implementations. The project highlights the use of oneAPI libraries and languages, such as Intel® oneAPI Threading Building Blocks and DPC++.

TAU Parallel Performance System

The TAU Parallel Performance System is a profiling and tracing tool framework for performance analysis of parallel programs. It has been integrated to the runtime of three different GPU vendors to profile a SYCL application to emphasize the benefits of an open industry standard.

OneOligo is an EU-funded project that implements synthetic DNA as storage to meet the demands of a data-driven economy as data generation rate outpaces the storage density of currently available media. Synthetic DNA possesses key properties that make it relevant for archival storage density, ruggedness, and it is easy and cheap to replicate like organic DNA.

Open-Source Scientific Applications and Benchmarks 

This repository contains a collection of data-parallel programs migrated from CUDA. They compare the performance of the SYCL, DPCT-generated, and OpenMP implementations of each program. This is an example of how SYCL as an open standard can increase productivity and, in time, facilitate the adoption of SYCL, migrating applications for multiplatform support.
