2010 Summer School in e-Science with Many-Core CPU/GPU Processors

Interdisciplinary research,
education and capacity building

10 May 2010

The course, schedule for June 14-18 in Braga, will provide participants with knowledge and hands-on experience in developing applications software for many-core processors with massively parallel computing resources. The Application deadline is May 14.

It will be the first course in Europe given by NVIDIA senior members David Kirk and Michael Garland and by Wen-mei W. Hwu of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

David Kirk is an NVIDIA Fellow and served from 1997 to 2009 as NVIDIA’s chief scientist, a role in which he led the development of graphics technology for today’s most popular consumer entertainment platforms. Wen-mei W. Hwu is the Walter J. (“Jerry”) Sanders III-Advanced Micro Devices Endowed Chair in Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Coordinated Science Laboratory of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Michael Garland is currently a research scientist with NVIDIA Research and an adjunct professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois, Urbana- Champaign.

The Summer School will also have other experts in Graphics Computing and from other Scientific Computing areas, to present their views and experiences in using CUDA in the development of their libraries or scientific applications.

Applications are due on May 14, 2010.  For more information on how to attend, please visit: http://advcomp.di.uminho.pt/uta/mcss2010/
