It’s that time of year again! Here at NVIDIA, we’re hard at work getting ready for the 2014 GPU Technology Conference, the world’s most important GPU developer conference. Taking place in the heart of Silicon Valley, GTC offers unmatched opportunities to learn how to harness the latest GPU technology including 500 sessions, hands-on labs and tutorials, technology demos, and face-to-face interaction with industry luminaries and NVIDIA technologists.
Come to the epicenter of computing technology March 24-27, and see how your peers are using GPUs to accelerate impactful results in various disciplines of scientific and computational research. Register for GTC now, because the Early Bird discount for GTC registration ends in one week on Wednesday, January 29th. The Early Bird discount is 25% on a full-conference registration, and to sweeten the deal I can offer Parallel Forall readers an extra 20% off using the code GM20PFB. That gets you four days of complete access to GTC for just $720, or $360 for academic and government employees. Don’t miss it, register now!
Here are a few talks to give you an idea of the breadth and quality of talks you will see at GTC:
- Harnessing GPUs to Overcome Conventional Fluid-Particle Interaction Simulation Limitations
Adam Sierakowski, Johns Hopkins University
- 10 Billion Parameter Neural Networks in Your Basement
Adam Coates, Stanford University
- Accelerated Algorithms in Bioinformatics and Data Mining
Bertil Schmidt, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz
In addition to talks, Monday at GTC is a full day of in-depth tutorials, such as:
- An Introduction to Accelerated Computing using Directives
Jeff Larkin, NVIDIA
- NumbaPro: High-Level GPU Programming in Python for Rapid Development
Siu Kwan Lam and Travis Oliphant, Continuum Analytics
- An Introduction to CUDA Programming (Parts One and Two)
Chris Mason, Acceleware
We are also planning another awesome series of “Bring-your-own Laptop” hands-on tutorials (no CUDA GPU required). Last year’s sessions included CUDA C, OpenACC, Thrust, CUDA Fortran, Multi-GPU Acceleration, image/signal processing, and more. You’ll need to sign up early for these, as there is limited space. Sign up here for email notification of the 2014 hands-on sessions.
Check out the rest of the conference sessions. Many sessions are now available online, and we will be posting more in the coming weeks. You might also want to look at a past post I wrote about some of the excellent talks I saw at GTC 2012.
There is still time to share your work at GTC 2014. Call for posters is open now though January 31, 2014.
We look forward to seeing you at GTC 2014!
