Description

The KAUST Supercomputing Laboratory is co-organizing with NVIDIA, a leader in accelerated computing and artificial intelligence, a full-day workshop on accelerating scientific applications using GPUs on Tuesday, February 20th, 2018 in the auditorium between buildings 4 and 5. The workshop will be followed by a 2-day GPU Hackathon in which selected teams of developers will be guided by OpenACC and CUDA mentors from NVIDIA and KAUST to port and accelerate their domain science application to GPU accelerators on the IBEX Cluster.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.
