CSCS-USI Autumn School on “GPU-enabled numerical libraries” – September 14-15 (Sat. & Sun.), 2013


The FoMICS initiative together with CSCS offers a 2-day intensive workshop on the use of numerical libraries for Graphical Processing Units (GPUs). GPUs offer huge potential performance, but their programming can be challenging. One way to attain the promised performance is to invoke routine from libraries which have been  specially designed and optimized for GPUs. The first day of the course will include a fast-paced GPU programming tutorial, supplementing the GPU  Programming Workshop and focussing on such advanced topics as exploiting different types of GPU memory, exploring CPU GPU bandwidth, and programming non-trivial algorithms.  The next 1-1/2 days will include tutorials on existing GPU-enabled libraries, such as CUBLAS, CUSPARSE, CUFFT, PARALUTION, and MAGMA.  The tutorials will be supplemented by hands-on training on the CSCS GPU development cluster “Tödi”.

The deadline for registration is August 16th, 2013.
