Computer Science will be hosting a General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU) programming workshop from the 20th-24th April 2015 in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cape Town. This workshop is the third in a series of GPGPU workshops held at UCT. The principal lecturers on the course will again be Nvidia fellows John Stone and Manuel Ujaldón. This workshop will cover the basics of NVIDIA’s CUDA programming environment, to enable effective general purpose computing with GPUs, and will then progress to advanced topics, such as hyper-Q, dynamic parallelism and unified memory.
The workshop is aimed at programmers with experience in C/C++ coding, who would like to explore Nvidia CUDA programming for graphics processing units. The workshop is offered as part of the UCT Computer Science Honours programme, but is open to other participants. To apply for the workshop, send a motivation letter to Michelle Kuttel. We hope to have both post-graduate students and industry delegates represented.
Information on the workshop programme, registration and accommodation will be posted on the workshop website: http://gpu.cs.uct.ac.za
