GPUs and Accelerators in HPC

Tower Seminar Room
STFC Daresbury Laboratory
28-29 September 2010


Igor Kozin (STFC Daresbury Laboratory)
Dave Cable (STFC Daresbury Laboratory)
Jonathan Follows (STFC Daresbury Laboratory)


The workshop on GPUs and Accelerators in HPC is a two day workshop organised by the Computational Science & Engineering Department at STFC Daresbury Laboratory. It aims to bring together people interested in GPU and accelerator computing, highlight recent advancements in this area and provide a forum for sharing user experience to date.


The winner of the NVIDIA competition is John Pennycook, University of Warwick "Experiences with Porting and Modelling Wavefront Algorithms on Many-Core Architectures". He was awarded a Fermi card for the best contributed paper.
