GPGPU-day 2012

 
 

On 28 June a GPGPU-day was held in Amsterdam, where researchers and professionals talk about their experiences with GPGPUOpenCLCUDA and alike techniques.

Below is a video with the speakers and a short description of their talk. For best impression, watch full-screen.

The primary goal of this day is to meet fellow GPGPU researchers and professionals working in the Netherlands.

The program (table below) is very diverse and given by various researchers and professionals. You can find all abstracts here.

Why You Should Attend?

  • Meet others in the parallel programming industry and research of the Netherlands.
  • Learn about research that is done with GPUs today.
  • Find out if you can use GPUs for your own challenges.
