Wed Jan 9 12:34:11 PST 2013


Stanford research community - here is another opportunity to learn more
about GPU computing. Sponsored by ICME and Stanford Research Computing,
the workshop is being held in conjunction with IT Services' Tech
Briefing series.  See details below to pre-register for this free workshop.


*GPU COMPUTING ADVANCED - Advanced, Profiling and Optimizations with
Hands on Exercises*
The advanced GPU computing workshop will build on the, GPU COMPUTING 101
workshop, by discussing advanced GPU programming techniques such as
profiling applications and code optimization strategies. Audience will
participate in hands-on exercises in OpenACC and CUDA to display these
optimization techniques. High level programming methods such as the
Thrust application library and the use of Python in GPU computing may
also be shown.

This workshop is recommended for:
     • Experienced Developers & GPU 101 participants
     • Domains scientists & HPC Staff who use OpenMP or
        Domian Specific Launguages

*Speaker Bios:*
*Levi Barnes*, Development Technologies Software Engineer, NVIDIA. Levi
works on fine-tuning GPU-accelerated applications in such fields as
quantum chemistry, fluid dynamics and seismic simulation. Before coming
to NVIDIA, Levi wrote mask synthesis software for Synopsys, Inc. He
holds five patents, a PhD in physics from University of California-San
Diego and a BS in physics from Brigham Young University.

*Steve Rennich*, CUDA Developer Technology Engineer, NVIDIA. Steve
supports the use of GPUs in the computational structural analysis
community and has specific interest in the optimization of parallel
algorithms for the solution of sparse linear systems. Steve holds a PhD
in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University where he
studied computational fluid mechanics and vortex system instabilities.
Prior to joining NVIDA Steve spent 10 years developing industrial rigid
body dynamics and structural analysis codes.
