Course 2013-CUDA(1) at HLRS, Stuttgart
Großer Seminarraum (big seminar-room),
HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart),
||2013, Wednesday, April 24, 12:30 - Friday, April 26, 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
This course provides scientific training in Computational Science,
and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves.

HLRS is part of the
Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), which is one of the six
PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) that started in
The mandate for the PATCs is as follows:
"The PRACE Advanced Training Centres will serve as European hubs of advanced,
world-class training for researchers working in the computational sciences."
This course is not part of the PATC curriculum and is not sponsored by the PATC program.
