Hi NERSC Community, NERSC, in conjunction with NVIDIA and OLCF, will be hosting a GPU Hackathon from July 13th-15th with an opening day on July 7th as part of NVIDIA's annual GPU Hackathon Series <https://gpuhackathons.org/>! This year, the hackathon is going digital. Hack with world-class mentors from the safety of your home. Applications are open to all NERSC application teams, whether the team is in NESAP or not. Short applications are due this Sunday night May 17. Apply here: https://gpuhackathons.org/events Hackathons combine teams of developers with mentors to prepare their own application(s) to run on GPUs or optimize their application(s) that currently run on GPUs. This digital event consists of a kick-off day, where hackers and mentors video-conference to meet and develop their list of hackathon goals, followed by a one week preparation period before the 3-day intensive primary event. Teams should consist of three or more developers who are intimately familiar with (some part of) their application, and they will work alongside two mentors with GPU programming expertise. If you want/need to get your code running (or optimized) on a GPU-accelerated system, these hackathons offer a unique opportunity to set aside 4 days, surround yourself with experts in the field, and push toward your development goals. During the event, teams will have access to compute resources provided by NERSC and OLCF. In addition, you may find some details on the next generation A100 GPUs, that will power NERSC's upcoming Perlmutter system, from NVIDIA's announcement this morning: https://www.nersc.gov/news-publications/nersc-news/nersc-center-news/2020/nersc-one-of-early-adopters-of-new-nvidia-gpu-processor/ https://devblogs.nvidia.com/nvidia-ampere-architecture-in-depth/ Sincerely, Jack Deslippe Application Performance Lead NERSC _______________________________________________ Users mailing list Users@nersc.gov
