Wednesday 4/24 - GPU Presentations Day at Northeastern

140 The Fenway Building, 3rd floor


Thursday 4/25 – GPU Programming Workshop at BU

Whitaker Computational Simulation Facility

24 Cummington Mall, Basement Room B03/B04


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 submit a 2 page abstract to both

d.kaeli at neu.edu and jsaposhnik at nvidia.com if you are interested in

presenting.


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.  Please RSVP to both kamalic at bu.edu and

jsaposhnik at nvidia.com if you are interested in attending.

                              April 24-25, 2013

                                 Boston, MA

Event: Northeastern University and Boston Universities, together with
NVIDIA, are hosting a "GPUs Accelerating Research" Week.  As part of
this week, Northeastern is hosting a day long workshop on 4/24 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.  The
following 4/25, Boston University is hosting a full day developer's
workshop targeting CUDA and OpenACC development. We invite you to
attend both events and to submit a 2 page abstract if you are
interested in presenting.

Locations: Northeastern University:    4/24 GPU Research Computing
Innovation Workshop140 The Fenway Building, 3rd floorBoston
University:    4/25 Full Day CUDA/OpenACC Developers Workshop
(Beginner to Intermediate)Whitaker Computational Simulation Facility,
24 Cummington Mall, Basement Room B03/B04


Calls for Presentation for GPU Research Computing Innovation Workshop on 4/24:

Please submit a 2 page abstract describing the research you would
present at the workshop.  Presentations will be selected based on the
quality and general interest as judged by your abstract.  Topics of
interest include:


* GPU applications        * GPU programming environments    * GPU
languages and extensions

* Multi-GPU systems    * GPU compilation                * GPU power/efficiency

* GPU benchmarking    * Heterogeneous GPU platforms        * HPC to Embedded


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.


Industry:

Industry is invited to present demos  -  table space will be provided.

There is no cost to attend this workshop, and lunch will be provided
on April 24[th] at Northeastern.


Important dates:

* Submissions: April 1, 2013

* Notification: April 5, 2013

* Presentation: April 24, 2013


Submissions should be sent to both organizers of the 4/24 Workshop:
