Course CUDA(2)
Location Großer Seminarraum (big seminar-room), HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart), Universität Stuttgart, Allmandring 30, D-70569 Stuttgart
Date 2013, Monday, Oct. 21, 12:30 - Wednesday, Oct. 23, 16:00 (modified on May 10, 2013: course moved from Nov. 6-8 to Oct. 21-23)
Content GPU Programming using CUDA
Abstract 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 is given. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. (The course has the same content as the course in spring.)

Cancelation policy 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 from the waiting-list. There is no cancelation fee.
NO-SHOW: Registered persons that do not cancel and do not show up without any reasons are blocked for the next year on any of our workshops (because it is too expensive to produce unused copies of the slides for them).
Limit maximum of 40 participants in Stuttgart (according to the seats in the rooms).
Handouts Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
