Announcement: GPGPU Workshop (2015)

29 Jan 2015 - 11:45

The GPGPU Workshop on Advanced Methods for Computing with CUDA will run for the third time in 2015. Organised by the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cape Town, it will be held from 20 to 24 April 2015.

The focus will be on an introduction to CUDA programming (as in GPGPU 2013). The principal lecturers on the course will be again Nvidia fellows John Stone and Manuel Ujaldón. The workshop will cover the basics of NVIDIA’s CUDA programming environment, to enable effective general purpose computing with GPUs and will then progress to advanced topics, like hyper-Q, dynamic parallelism and unified memory.

The focus of applications discussed will be on problems from radio astronomy and the Square Kilometer Array project. Funding for the workshop was provided by a South African Square Kilometre Array Project grant: The MeerKAT High Performance Computing (HPC) for Radio Astronomy Research Programme.

The workshop is offered as part of the UCT Computer Science Honours programme, but is open to other participants. To apply for the workshop, send a motivation letter to Michelle Kuttel. Places are limited.
