GPU Technology Conference 2012
The third annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC), an event showcasing breakthroughs in computational science with the GPU (graphics processing unit), will be held at San Jose’s McEnery Convention Center from 14 to 17 May 2012.
Los Alamos National Laboratory’s co-located Accelerated High Performance Computing (HPC) Symposium will move to the same week, as will the new InPar 2012 academic conference, geared towards providing a first-tier venue for peer-reviewed publications in the field of innovative parallel computing.
A new online resource for attendees of GTC 2012, and the entire GPU computing community, has gone live at www.gputechconf.com. The site is a year-round resource, featuring details of all keynotes, technical sessions and events, conference scheduling tools, and social media resources. A key section of the new site is the GTC Learning Center which provides education, news and insight for the GPU Computing community. In addition to GTC On-Demand replays of more than 300 hours of GTC 2010 content, the section will also feature the new GTC Express series of webinars.
The first webinar will begin on 15 June 2011 with a presentation by Nvidia’s director of research, Dr David Luebke on the subject of the heritage of GPU Computing and the important problems and research topics facing researchers. This will be followed by a webinar on 13 July 2011, presented by Dr Rob Farber on the subject of the practical reality of heterogeneous supercomputing.
Also accessible through the GTC website are details of the regional events that are running globally throughout the year.
