Nvidia Announces GPU Technology Conference 2012
Santa Clara, Calif. - Nvidia will hold its third annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC), showcasing breakthroughs in computational science with the GPU (graphics processing unit), at San Jose's McEnery Convention Center from May 14-17, 2012.
Los Alamos National Laboratory's co-located Accelerated High Performance Computing (HPC) Symposium will move to the same week, as will the new InPar 2012 academic conference, geared toward providing a first-tier venue for peer-reviewed publications in the field of innovative parallel computing.
A new online resource for attendees of GTC 2012, and entire GPU computing community, is now live at www.gputechconf.com. The site is a year-round resource, featuring details of all keynotes, technical sessions and events, conference scheduling tools, social media resources, and more.
A key section of the new site is the GTC Learning Center, which provides education, news, and insight for the GPU Computing community. In addition to GTC On-Demand replays of 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.
The first webinar will kick off on June 15, 2011 with a presentation by Nvidia's director of research, Dr. David Luebke, on the subject of the heritage of GPU Computing and the important problems and research topics facing researchers going forward. This will be followed by a webinar on July 13, 2011, presented by published author and GPU Computing expert, Dr. Rob Farber, on the subject of the practical reality of heterogeneous supercomputing.
Also accessible through the GTC Web site are details of the regional events that are running throughout the year, all over the world. In the month of May, over a thousand scientists, engineers, researchers, and developers attended events in Singapore, Taiwan, and Israel. Events are scheduled for Japan and China later this year.
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.
