A One Day National level Workshop was conducted on “Parallel Computing with GPUs” on 19 March 2016. It was jointly organized by GPU Centre of Excellence(GCOE), IIT Bombay and GPU Research Centre, Department of Computer Science & Engineering, R V College of Engineering, Bengaluru.


About Workshop:

NVIDIA Corporation, USA has awarded IIT Bombay a GPU Centre of Excellence (GCoE).

It has awarded GPU Research Centre in 2015 to Department of Computer Science & Engineering, R V College of Engineering. The vision of the GCoE at IITB and GPU Research Centre , RVCE is to provide infrastructure, knowledge, research, and education in heterogeneous computing to a wide scientific community in the country. Towards this vision this free workshop “Parallel Computing with GPUs” was organized. The workshop covered lectures and hands on sessions on Parallel Computing with Matlab. The GCoE team gave presentation on CUDA Programming and Jetson TK1 (world’s first embedded supercomputer). More than 140 participants from various colleges attended this workshop. The GCoE team headed by Prof. Nataraj, from IIT Bombay,  Dr. Shobha G, Dr. Minal Moharir and Prof. Anala M. R of R. V. College of Engineering organized this workshop.

The workshop was aimed at enriching the skills of students and faculty members with cutting-edge technologies and hands-on experience in developing applications for many-core processors, with massively parallel computing resources like GPU accelerators.

R.V. College of Engineering gratefully acknowledged the support of NVIDIA Corporation with the donation of the Tesla K20, Tesla K20 and GEForce Titan GTX GPU used for this workshop.
