The 2009 Symposium on Application Accelerators in HPC will be held in July (20th to 30th) in Urbana, IL.
“What do GPUs, FPGAs, vector processors and other exotic special-purpose chips have in common? They are advanced processor architectures that the scientific community is using to accelerate computationally demanding applications. While high-performance computing systems that use application accelerators are still rare, they will be the norm rather than the exception in the near future. The first annual 2009 Symposium on Application Accelerators in High-Performance Computing (SAAHPC’09) aims to bring together developers of computing accelerators and end-users of the technology to exchange ideas and learn about the latest developments in the field. The Symposium will focus on the use of application accelerators in high-performance and scientific computing and issues that surround it.”
