Event to take place in May 2012 in San Jose, California
The third annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC) by nVidia will take place on 14th to 17th May 2012 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Centre in California. The event will showcase breakthroughs in computational science with the GPU (graphics processing unit).
Attendees of GTC 2012 and members of the GPU computing community will have access to a new online resource featuring details of all keynotes, technical sessions and events, conference scheduling tools, social media resources and much more at www.gputechconf.com.
The new site features the GTC Learning Centre which provides education, news and insight for the GPU Computing community, as well as replays of over 300 hours of GTC 2010 content.
The section will also feature the new GTC Express series of webinars, featuring GPU Computing and computational science experts sharing how GPUs are transforming their fields of work.
Dr David Luebke, nVidia's director of research will kick-off the first webinar session on 15th June 2011, which will cover the heritage of GPU Computing and the important problems and research topics facing researchers going forward.
This will be followed by a second webinar, on 13th July 2011 by published author and GPU Computing expert, Dr Rob Farber on the subject of the practical reality of heterogeneous supercomputing.
The GTC website will also list GPU Computing events that are running throughout the year, all over the world.
Los Alamos National Laboratory's co-located Accelerated High Performance Computing (HPC) Symposium will also be taking place in May 2012, as will the new InPar 2012 academic conference, which is designed to provide a first-tier venue for peer-reviewed publications in the field of innovative parallel computing.
IN 2010, the GTC event in San Jose, California offered over 280 hours of content to thousands of attendees. The content was geared towards computational scientists, engineers and developers who want to better understand how the GPU is transforming scientific, visual and technical computing.
Sponsors for GTC 2012 include HP, Microsoft, Supermicro, PNY, Adobe, Dell, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lenovo, Caps, Bull, Synnex, Next IO, GE Intelligent Platforms, Appro and AMAX.
