What: A 5-day intensive GPU programming Hackathon hosted by University of Delaware in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL)
When: May 2nd-6th, 2016
Where: University of Delaware
Deadline for Application Submission: February 26
Sunita Chandrasekaran, CIS Department faculty, is running a 5-day intensive GPU programming Hackathon where current or prospective user groups of large hybrid CPU-GPU systems can send teams of at least 3 developers along with either (1) a (potentially) scalable application that needs to be ported to GPU accelerators, or (2) an application running on accelerators which needs optimization.
For the 5-days, mentors come on site to UDel from national laboratories, universities and vendors, and besides having extensive experience in programming with OpenACC/CUDA, many of them develop the GPU-capable compilers and help define the OpenACC standard.
The teams are also welcome to bring their own mentors. For example 1 mentor for a team of 2-4 developers.
Prior GPU experience or OpenACC programming is not required.
Interested teams, please contact Sunita Chandrasekaran at schandra at udel.edu and Fernanda Foertter at foertterfs at ornl.gov for further questions.
