The tuning strategy sessions and algorithm sessions were excellent, and being able to talk with principle NVIDIA engineers was great. I found the conference very worthwhile. - Bob Arendt, Rincon Research Corp.

I went to GTC for the technical presentations and to connect to other people involved with GPUs. In those respects my experience was excellent. - Domokos Vermes, Worcester Polytechnic Institute

The wide variety of presentation subject matter, even wider variety of attendee backgrounds, cutting edge hardware, and cutting edge software made this all supremely entertaining. - Eric Carlson, University of Alabama

This is the best organized and executed conference I attend. Every year I’ve made a lot of important contacts for new directions for my research. - Peter Lu, Harvard University
We look forward to seeing you at GTC 2012 in San Jose!
