Presentation Slides and Posters

    Thank you to everyone that came out to the symposium! Presentation slides and posters that have been provided for dissemination can be found in the SHARCNET document system.

About

    This one-day symposium will explore the use of GPUs and Cell processors for scientific and high performance computing. SHARCNET has deployed high-performance clusters containing both architectures, and this symposium will give researchers the chance to learn about these new technologies from keynote speakers who are at the forefront of research in this field. Researchers working with these architectures are invited to contribute presentations and posters.
