GTC 2013
CUDA Pro Tip: Use shared memory to maximize data locality and reuse in 3D Finite Difference codes. Learn how in this Parallel Forall blog post.


Eldad Klaiman GPUs for High–Performance Embedded Systems
This week’s Spotlight is on Ian Lintault, managing director at nCore Design. nCore is focused on applications that require high compute performance and low latency in embedded form factors.

Ian comments: “GPUs offer the programmer a very powerful mechanism to offload computationally intensive portions of an algorithm….” Read our interview with Ian Lintault


GTC 2013: Have you registered for GTC yet? In addition to sessions, tutorials and hands-on labs, there's a fun lineup of networking and social events, including dining at local restaurants, an action-packed Casino Night party, and more. Sign up today.

MATLAB Webinar: Accelerating Signal Processing and Communications Algorithms Using GPU Computing (by Kirthi Devleker, MathWorks) is now available for replay.

OpenMM Update: The OpenMM Visiting Scholar Program will select up to three individuals this year to visit Stanford University to advance their OpenMM projects. OpenMM is an open-source software project led by Dr. Vijay Pande that enables molecular dynamic calculations to be accelerated on high-performance computer architectures.

New Optics Paper: Check out Real-time GPU-based 3D Deconvolution by Marc A. Bruce and Manish J. Butte, Stanford University.

Intro to Parallel Programming: Explore parallel programming for the first time or push your knowledge even further with Udacity’s Intro to Parallel Programming course. Units 1-5 are online, with units 6-7 rolling out shortly.

CUDA Centers: There are now over 230 CUDA Research Centers and Training Centers worldwide. Recently, NVIDIA announced that CUDA Centers are eligible for discounts on Tesla Kepler GPU accelerators from preferred solution providers. Apply to become a CUDA Research Center or CUDA Teaching Center.
