University GPU Club: Tues 23 July 2013
Software for GPUs inc. compiler/directives, maths libs & tools (debuggers and profilers)
We are proud to announce that MathWorks (producers of MATLAB) and NVIDIA (producers of GPUs and CUDA) are coming to The University of Manchester on Tuesday 23 July to give presentations on how their products can be used by UoM researchers to dramatically reduce the time to solution for their simulations.
Details are being confirmed, but the draft agenda is as below. Abstracts and speaker biographies will follow soon.
Presentations 10am - 1:30pm, Cordingley Lecture Theatre
- 10am: coffee
- 10:30am, Jeremy Purches (HPC Business Development Manager) and Tim Lanfear, NVIDIA
- 11:30am, Jos Martin, Principal Architect for Parallel Computing Tools, Mathworks
- 12:30pm, lunch
Workshops 2pm-4pm, Hansoon Room
- An opportunity to meet and discuss with Mathworks and NVIDIA about your research and how they can help. Registration will be required (form to follow).
Both buildings are in Humanities Bridgeford Street.
