When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
SESSION: PARALLEL: Introduction to Accelerators and GPGPU
EVENT TYPE: Education
TIME: 3:30PM - 5:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Daniel J. Ernst
Presenter(s):Daniel Ernst, Charlie Peck, Thomas Murphy, Henry Neeman
ABSTRACT: This session provides an introduction to the use of specialized hardware ("accelerators") to improve the performance of applications, with particular focus placed on General-Purpose computing on Graphics Processing Units (GPGPU). Topics covered will include: overview of some available accelerators; advantages and disadvantages of using accelerators; interfacing accelerators and the PCIe bottleneck; accelerator programming models, languages, tools, and libraries (including CUDA, OpenCL, cuBLAS, etc.). Includes application case studies of accelerator use.
Prerequisite: "Shared Memory Parallel Programming using OpenMP" session or equivalent.
