“GPUs Accelerating Research” Week at Northeastern and BU

March 24th, 2013

Northeastern University and Boston University, together with NVIDIA, are hosting a “GPUs Accelerating Research” Week next month.

On the first day, Wednesday 4/24, Northeastern is hosting a day of talks focused on how graphics processors are accelerating new and interesting areas of research in novel ways. The goal of this meeting is to provide a venue for both industry and academia to come together to discuss these innovations, and explore what lies ahead in GPU acceleration. Given that we have limited space in this one-day workshop, papers not selected for presentation at the workshop will have the option to present at a poster session to be held during the workshop. Please visit our website for registration and other details.

On the second day, Thursday 4/25, Boston University is hosting an all-day CUDA and OpenACC developer’s workshop. Prerequisites for getting the most out of this workshop are a basic understanding of C and the Linux command line. More details can be found here.
