Event Details

This workshop will address topics such as why heterogeneous computing with GPUs is important to sustaining and advancing the state of the art in scientific and research computing. NVIDIA GPUs are the world’s fastest and most efficient accelerators delivering world record scientific application performance. NVIDIA’s CUDA Technology is the most pervasive parallel computing model, used by over 250 scientific applications and over 150,000 developers worldwide.

Virginia Tech and NVIDIA are collaborating to host a 2 day, hands-on workshop to survey the broad range of GPU accelerated applications across all domains of scientific research and engineering. Participants will learn how to program GPUs via the use of libraries, OpenACC compiler directives, and CUDA programming. The workshop will incorporate hands-on exercises so that the participants will acquire the skills to use and develop GPU aware applications.

This workshop is recommended for:

  • Graduate Students, Postdocs, Researchers, Professors

Space is limited, reservations will be granted on a first come, first serve basis.
