Tutorial Details: Heterogeneous GPU Computing using NVIDIA Tesla, CUDA and Jacket

Date: Monday, April 6, 2009, 10:00 am - 02:00 pm
Location: 402 Walter
Instructor(s): Professor David J Lilja, , Mark Visconti, NVIDIA, Tauseef Rehman, AccelerEyes, Michael Garland, NVIDIA Research, Drew Vohs, JRTI

Join us for an overview of GPU Computing, the CUDA parallel programming model, and Tesla GPU computing products for computational scientists and researchers.

Experts from NVIDIA and University of Minnesota Fellow David Lilja will talk about their experience using CUDA and ongoing work with GPU computing. In addition, NVIDIA will be present to offer a demonstration of the Tesla Personal Supercomputer. There will also be an introduction and demo of the software Jacket. The Jacket software allows for Matlab code to be run on GP/GPUs. Lunch will be served.
