A GPU computing workshop and discussion forum will be held at the UWA University Club Thursday, May 7th. The workshop aims to provide a detailed introduction to GPU computing with CUDA and NVIDIA Tesla computing solutions, and to present research in GPU and Heterogeneous computing being undertaken in Western Australia.
Mark Harris (NVIDIA) will present an introduction to the CUDA architecture, programming model, and the programming environment of C for CUDA, as well as an overview of the Tesla GPU architecture, a live programming demo, and strategies for optimizing CUDA applications for the GPU. To better enable the uptake of this technology, Dragan Dimitrovici from Xenon Systems will provide an overview of CUDA enabled hardware options. The workshop will also include brief presentations of some of the projects using CUDA within Western Australia, including a presentation from Professor Karen Haines (WASP@UWA) on parallel computing strategies required for optimizing applications for GPU and heterogeneous computing.
Please see the workshop flyer for full details.

This workshop, hosted by eResearch SA and to be presented by Mark Harris (NVIDIA) with Dragan Dimitrovici (Xenon Systems), aims to provide a detailed introduction to GPU computing with CUDA and NVIDIA GPUs such as the Tesla series of high-performance computing processors.
The workshop will be held from 9:00-13:00 on Tuesday 28th April, in the Henry Ayers Room, Ayers House
288 North Terrace, Adelaide (opposite the Royal Adelaide Hospital).
CUDA is NVIDIA’s revolutionary parallel computing architecture for GPUs. The available software tools include a C compiler for developers to build applications, as well as useful libraries for high-performance computing (BLAS, FFT, etc). Several widely-used scientific applications have been ported to run on GPUs using CUDA. This half-day workshop will provide an introduction to the CUDA architecture, programming model, and the programming environment of C for CUDA, as well as an overview of the Tesla GPU architecture, a live programming demo, and strategies for optimizing CUDA applications for the GPU. The workshop will also include a brief presentation of some of the current NVIDIA hardware offerings for GPU computing using CUDA.
The workshop is free, but space is limited. For complete details and registration, visit the workshop web page or download the brochure.
