The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, in collaboration with NVIDIA, will host a free GPU hackathon on July 19 and July 26-28, 2022. Applications to participate are due May 24, 2022.

The multi-day virtual event is designed to help teams of three to six developers accelerate their codes on the ThetaGPU HPC system at Argonne National Laboratory using a portable programming model, such as OpenMP, or an AI framework of their choice. Each team will be assigned mentors for the duration of the event to provide guidance on porting their code to GPUs or optimizing its performance.

ALCF said no previous GPU experience is required, but teams are expected to be fluent with the code they bring to the event and motivated to make progress at the hackathon. HPC, AI, or data science projects are welcome.
