Dear all

I would like to draw your attention to this Summer School on GPU programming.

The Summer School in e-Science with Many-Core CPU/GPU Processors is
planned for the 3rd week of June in Braga, Portugal, and is the first
course in Europe given by two NVIDIA senior members and a Professor
from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.




David Kirk is an NVIDIA Fellow and served from 1997 to 2009 as
NVIDIA's chief scientist, a role in which he led the development of
graphics technology for today’s most popular consumer entertainment
platforms. He recently published a book entitled “Programming
Massively Parallel Processors: a hands-on approach”, together with
Wen-mei Hwu (see below), addressing the concepts of many core parallel
programming and GPU architecture.

Wen-mei W. Hwu is the Walter J. ("Jerry") Sanders III-Advanced Micro
Devices Endowed Chair in Electrical and Computer Engineering in the
Coordinated Science Laboratory of the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign. From 1997 to 1999, Dr. Hwu served as the chairman of
the Computer Engineering Program at the University of Illinois.

Michael Garland is currently a research scientist with NVIDIA Research
and an adjunct professor in the Department of Computer Science at the
University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

The Summer School will also have other experts in Graphics Computing
and from other Scientific Computing areas, to present
their views and experiences in using CUDA in the development of their
libraries or scientific applications.
