GPU Technology Conference opens for registration

Share this on social media:

Registration is now open for Nvidia's third GPU Technology Conference (GTC), held in San Jose, California, US. Taking place 14-17 May 2012, the event is focused on how the GPU is transforming science. It is expected to gather individuals from scientific, engineering, research and developer communities from more than 40 nations.

‘In just a few short years, GTC has become the single most important event for scientists and researchers who use GPUs to advance their work,’ said Steve Scott, CTO for Tesla at Nvidia. ‘The leading figures in astronomy, bioinformatics, cloud computing and neuroscience, among many other fields, will be sharing their latest computing techniques, technologies and real-world experiences.’

GTC 2012 will include keynotes, presentations, research posters, tutorials and hundreds of instructional sessions from top experts. It will again feature the Emerging Companies Summit, where some of the world’s most innovative start-ups showcase new technologies. It will also include networking events throughout the week, enabling experts to share information.

Presenters include representatives from CERN, Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, National Institute of Natural Sciences/Institute for Molecular Science (Japan), Irish Centre for High-End Computing, Chinese Academy of Sciences/Institute of Process Engineering, Cray, HP, Microsoft, Texas A&M University, Tokyo Institute of Technology and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

In addition, Nvidia and Los Alamos National Laboratory, a US national security research institution, will co-host the Accelerated High Performance Computing Symposium, bringing together leaders in supercomputing to share knowledge to help solve the most crucial supercomputing technology challenges.

Also co-located at GTC 2012 will be the new InPar 2012 academic conference, which provides a first-tier venue for peer-reviewed publications in the field of innovative parallel computing.
