Course 2010-CUDA(3) at HLRS, Stuttgart
Großer Seminarraum (big seminar-room),
HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart),
||2010, Thursday, December 16, 9:30 - Friday, December 17, 16:00
||GPU Programming using CUDA
The course provides an introduction to the programming language CUDA
which is used to write fast numeric algorithms for
NVIDIA graphics processors (GPUs). Focus is on the basic usage of the
language, the exploitation of the most important features of the device
(massive parallel computation, shared memory, texture memory) and
efficient usage of the hardware to maximize performance. An overview of
the available development tools and the advanced features of the language

|| If you cannot come to the course, please
send an email to the organizer as soon as possible.
This would allow us to accept additional participants
