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.

In the past these Hackathons were held at ORNL, NCSA, CSCS (Lugano) and TU Dresden.

Interested teams, please contact Sunita Chandrasekaran at schandra at udel.edu and Fernanda Foertter at foertterfs at ornl.gov for further questions.
