Aug. 13, 2020 — The CSC – IT Center for Science, a Finnish center of expertise in information technology, and NVIDIA invite computational scientists to the Virtual GPU Hackathon on October 26, 2020 – November 4, 2020. The deadline to apply is September 3, 2020.
CSC GPU Hackathon is multi-day intensive hands-on events designed to help computational scientists and researchers port and optimize their applications using GPUs. This event pairs participants with dedicated mentors experienced in GPU programming and development. Representing distinguished scholars and preeminent institutions around the world, these teams of mentors and attendees work together to realize performance gains and speedups by taking advantage of parallel programming on GPUs.
The goal of the CSC GPU Hackathon is for current or prospective user groups of large-scale, GPU-accelerated systems to port their applications to GPU accelerators or to further optimize already ported applications. Participating teams should leave the event either with applications running on GPUs or a clear roadmap of next steps to leverage GPUs.
