After three successful GPU Hackathons in 2015, OLCF is already planning similar events for 2016. The goal of each hackathon is for current or prospective user groups of large hybrid CPU-GPU systems to send teams of developers along with scalable application that needs to be ported or optimized for GPU accelerators.
The Call for Submissions is open for the upcoming GPU Programming Hackathon at University of Delaware (UDEL). The event takes place from May 2-6, 2016 at UDEL in Newark, Delaware.
“There will be intensive mentoring during this 5-day hands-on workshop, with the goal that the teams leave with applications running on GPUs, or at least with a clear roadmap of how to get there. Our mentors come from national laboratories, universities and vendors, and besides having extensive experience in programming with OpenACC/CUDA, many of them develop the GPU-capable compilers and help define the OpenACC standard.”
Submissions are due Feb. 19, 2016.
