2nd International Workshop on GPUs and Scientific Applications, GPUScA 2011
Held in conjunction with PACT 2011.
GPUs are cost-effective platforms for computational intensive applications providing tremendous peak performance. However, it is a major challenge to deliver the intrinsic performance of such architectures to end applications. The goal of this workshop is to bring together GPU experts with computational science experts. The workshop addresses programming approaches (stream programming) and key techniques to leverage the computing power of GPUs. Experiences gained while adapting scientific codes to run efficiently on such architectures are welcome. We solicit unpublished papers about research challenges and advances addressing porting of scientific codes and algorithms to GPU platforms.
The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
* Scientific applications optimized for GPUs
* Programming approaches for multicore CPUs and GPUs
* Stream computing
* Programming environments for GPUs
* Benchmarking/measurements for GPUs
* GPU architectures
* OpenCL and CUDA
