NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2013, scheduled for March 18-21, is the premier event for accelerated computing. This will be the fourth GTC and it just keeps getting better. If you haven’t been to GTC before you won’t be disappointed. Thousands of developers and research scientists from over 40 countries will converge on the San Jose Convention Center in California to talk shop across a wide-array of computing and research disciplines.
I will be giving a talk on future directions for CUDA that I hope you will attend, as well as a tutorial introduction to CUDA C/C++.
GTC will have many sessions on a wide variety of topics so I’m sure you will find much of interest. Here’s a small sample of session topics from GTC 2013.
- Algorithms and Numerical Techniques
- Bioinformatics and Genomics
- Climate, Weather, Ocean Modeling
- Computational Chemistry
- Computational Fluid Dynamics
- Computational Physics
- Development Tools and Libraries
- Parallel Programming Languages and Compilers
This year, GTC is expanding to include more sessions on the use of GPUs in mobile computing, cloud graphics, game development, media & entertainment, and manufacturing.
In addition to the sessions, we have a full day of pre-conference tutorials taught by NVIDIA research and engineering staff who are pioneering the next generation of GPU computing solutions. There is no additional cost for the tutorials when you buy a Full Conference Pass.
Beyond the formal curriculum, GTC provides a wealth of great networking events and opportunities. GTC attracts some of the top people in their fields, all working with GPUs and related technology, so you are certain to have lots of valuable conversations and meet interesting people—I know I always do.
