NVIDIA announced it will host a GPU Technology Conference focused around three events: Emerging Companies Summit, GPU Developer Summit and NVIDIA Research Summit. The conference will take place in San Jose from September 30 to October 2, 2009.
The conference will encompass three simultaneous events -- the Emerging Companies Summit, the GPU Developer Summit, and the NVIDIA Research Summit. Attendees will learn about the shifts occurring in computing, preview disruptive technologies, obtain tools and techniques that could impact mission-critical projects now, and network with experts and peers from across a broad range of fields.
"The GPU has quickly become one of the world's most important processors," stated Bill Dally, chief scientist at NVIDIA. "This event will bring together some of the brightest minds who will share the tools and techniques they used to leverage the enormous parallel processing power of the GPU."
The event will be held at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, California. Its three events include:
Emerging Companies Summit
A unique event that provides start-ups that are basing their business
around GPU computing with the opportunity to present their company to
entrepreneurs and venture capitalists involved in the GPU computing
GPU Developer Summit
A 3-day series of technical presentations, tutorials and panels aimed at
developers of consumer, professional and high performance computing
applications looking to exploit more of the GPU's parallel
processing power using industry-standard languages such as C/C++ and
Fortran as well as APIs such as Direct3D, DirectX Compute, OpenCL(TM)
NVIDIA Research Summit
A summit designed by researchers and academics for researchers and
academics. Sessions are aimed at those using GPUs in science and
engineering research who are keen to learn how GPU computing can
increase computational power and reduce time-to-discovery.
