Opening keynote to be delivered by NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang
BEIJING, Dec. 12 -- NVIDIA tomorrow kicks off GTC Asia, the next major event in its international series of GPU Technology Conference (GTC) events focused on the latest advances and research in science, academic and commercial fields enabled by GPU computing.
NVIDIA president and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will deliver the two-day event's opening keynote on Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 9:30 am Beijing Time (CST), at Beijing's China National Convention Center (Keynote Room, 4th Floor Hall A). He will discuss GPU technology in graphics, visualization and computing, and will illustrate how the symbiotic nature of visual and parallel computing is enabling breakthroughs in high-performance computing (HPC). The speech will be streamed live on the NVIDIA® GTC Asia web site: www.gputechconf.cn or www.gputechconf.cn/page/home-en.html.
GTC Asia will feature leaders from top scientific organizations and research institutions participating in a range of presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, roundtables and instructional sessions. The event is intended for developers, programmers and research scientists working on complex computational problems by harnessing the power of GPUs.
Among those scheduled to present at the event are experts from:
GTC Asia will include an Emerging Companies Summit, showcasing startups that are leveraging GPU computing to revolutionize today's computer industry, as well as a CUDA Student Workshop for tomorrow's HPC experts. It will also feature a workshop on Efficient Exascale Computing, presented by the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Process Engineering; Tokyo Institute of Technology; Swiss National Supercomputing Centre; Oak Ridge National Laboratory; National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; the National Research Council in Italy; and NVIDIA.
NVIDIA will be providing attendees with simultaneous translations for all technical sessions and keynote presentations in English and Mandarin.
Sponsors of GTC Asia include: Dell, HP, Lenovo, Supermicro, ASUS, Autodesk, Inspur, Sugon, CAPS, Hynix, Leadtek, Acceleware, Amazon, GPUs Technologies ltd, Kingchannel, Mathworks, The Portland Group, and ZanQi Technology Development Co., Ltd.
