GPU Technology Conference Approaches July 8, 2010

Posted by Peter Varhol in Architectures, Software platforms.

NVIDIA reminds me that its GPU Technology Conference is 11 weeks away (I submitted a proposal to speak; I’ll certainly mention if it’s accepted).  It’s September 20-23 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA.  In the meantime, the company is hosting a Live Chat series, featuring high-profile GPU technology personalities.  Each Live Chat is 30 minutes long and open to the public.  This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in GPU computing to get some virtual one-on-one time with the industry’s top GPU scientists, researchers and developers.

The first Live Chat first guest is Ian Buck, inventor of the Brook project and CUDA.  He’s currently Software Director of GPU Computing at NVIDIA. Ian’s talk at GTC last year, From Brook to CUDA, highlighted a perspective on how GPU computing has evolved and what the current innovations are in GPU technology.  During his Live Chat, Ian will give a preview of his GTC talk and will be taking questions about the future of CUDA and GPU computing.

I attended this conference last year, and found it to be one of the most energetic and informative conferences I have attended in many years.  You can tell the state of a particular technology by the enthusiasm of the attendees, and this conference has all the earmarks of a celebration for a significant new technology.

This year, keynote speakers include scientific computing authority Hanspeter Pfister from Harvard University and computer graphics pioneer Pat Hanrahan from Stanford University.

Anyone interested in high performance computing or GPU computing, whether specifically for graphics or for general-purpose computation, should check this out.
