Well, that is something. We have applied to become an NVIDIA GPU Research Center, and NVIDIA said “yes”. So, beginning summer 2015 (which at this point is already over) TU Wien now hosts a GPU Research Center at our institute (Institute for Microelectronics). At this point, there is only one other NVIDIA center in Austria (more information..). So, together with Karl(i) Rupp (who takes the lead here) and Florian Rudolf, we will further tune our free open source linear algebra library ViennaCL to the newest accelerator hardware. Additionally, we will investigate specific application areas based on finite element and on multigrid methods.
I am chairing the 24th SCS High Performance Computing Symposium (HPC) 2016, being held from April 3 – 6, 2016 in Pasadena, CA, USA.
The topics for this particular conference include:
- High performance computing issues in Big Data analytics
- High performance/large scale application case studies
- GPU for general purpose computations (GPGPU)
- Multicore and many-core computing
- Power aware computing
- Cloud, distributed, and grid computing
- Asynchronous numerical methods and programming
- Hybrid system modeling and simulation
- Large scale visualization and data management
- Tools and environments for coupling parallel codes
- Parallel algorithms and architectures
- High performance software tools
- Resilience at the simulation level
- Component technologies for high performance computing
Voluntary abstract submission (to get early feedback from the conference organizers) is due October 10, 2015. The actual full paper (limited to 8 pages, double column format) submission deadline is December 15, 2015.
