GPU Technology Conference

About GTC

GPU Technology Conference (GTC) advances global awareness of GPU computing and visualization and their importance to the future of science and innovation. Through world-class education, including hundreds of hours of technical sessions, tutorials, panel discussions, and moderated roundtables, GTC brings together thought leaders from a wide range of fields.

A focus of this year’s GTC conference is the upgrade of the OLCF’s Jaguar supercomputer to Titan, which is now being fitted with GPUs to continue the OLCF’s leadership role in computational science. A session will be dedicated to Titan featuring a range of presenters showcasing research codes that will run computational science on the GPU at scale. Through these selected presentations, the panel will investigate the progress and anticipated results of GPU-acceleration of these significant codes. The session will also explain how research scientists interested in tapping into the immense capabilities of Titan can do so, through programs such as DOE’s INCITE program. Presenters include: The OLCF’s Director of Science Jack Wells; Jacqueline H. Chen of Sandia National Laboratories; Ray Grout of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory; William Tang of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory; John A. Turner and Loukas Petridis, both of Oak Ridge National Laboratory; and Jeroen Tromp of the Princeton Institute for Computational Science.
