2012 Symposium on Application Accelerators in High-Performance Computing (SAAHPC12)

What do GPUs, FPGAs, vector processors and other exotic special-purpose chips have in common? They are advanced processor architectures that the scientific community is using to accelerate computationally demanding applications. While high-performance computing systems that use application accelerators are still rare, they will be the norm rather than the exception in the near future. The Symposium on Application Accelerators in High-Performance Computing brings together developers of computing accelerators and end-users of the technology to exchange ideas and learn about the latest developments in the field.

The symposium focuses on the use of application accelerators in high-performance and scientific computing and issues that surround it. Topics of interest include:

  • Novel accelerator processors, systems, and architectures
  • Integration of accelerators with high-performance computing systems
  • Programming models for accelerator-based computing
  • Languages and compilers for accelerator-based computing
  • Run-time environments, profiling and debugging tools for accelerator-based computing
  • Scientific and engineering applications that use application accelerators

Registration deadline for U.S. citizens and badged employees is Tuesday, June 26.
