1 – 6 July 2013 at the University of Johannesburg.
The HPC Winter School is the CHPC's flagship course in parallel programming for high performance computing covering:
The HPC School is now in progress...
Application deadline: 12 April 2013 Go to gpu.cs.uct.ac.za.
Although originally designed to handle computation for computer graphics, fully programmable Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) now offer a powerful alternative to general purpose computational applications traditionally handled by Central Processing Units (CPUs). As GPUs have overtaken CPUs in sheer processing power, GPU solutions have become particularly attractive for computationally intensive problems, such as data processing and physical simulations.
This course covers the practical development of algorithms and associated coding in NVIDIA’s CUDA programming environment for effective general purpose computing with GPUs.
The course is aimed at UCT Computer Science Honours (4th year) students.
However, we have space for an additional 20 delegates. Application for
attendance should comprise a motivation letter and a CV/resume and be
emailed to Christopher Laidler (
claidler .AT. cs.uct.ac.za) by the 12th April 2013.
