About

Hardware accelerators have the potential to elevate scientific computing to new levels of performance. This one-day symposium will explore the use of GPUs, CELL processors, FPGAs and multi-core CPUs for large-scale scientific computing. SHARCNET will soon deploy high-performance clusters containing both CELL and GPU accelerators, and this symposium will give SHARCNET researchers the chance to learn about these new technologies from keynote speakers who are at the forefront of research in this field. SHARCNET researchers who have first experiences in this new area are invited to contribute presentations and posters.
