A news summary for the worldwide CUDA, GPGPU and parallel programming community.
CUDA Pro Tip: Learn how to prototype algorithms and test CUDA kernels in MATLAB in the latest Parallel Forall post.


Valerie Halyo GPUs and High Energy Physics
This week's Spotlight is on Valerie Halyo of Princeton University. Valerie and her team perform research in the area of High Energy Physics (HEP), related to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator.

Read our our interview with Valerie Halyo.


New CUDACasts
In the debut episode of CUDACasts, we demonstrated how to install the CUDA Toolkit on Windows. Now we show you how to accelerate code on the GPU with CUDA and with OpenACC.
