CINECA organises the second Cineca - GPUHackathon, an exciting opportunitiy for scientists to accelerate their HPC codes or AI research under the guidance of expert mentors from National Labs, Universities and Industry leaders in a collaborative environment.

The CINECA GPU Hackathon is a virtual multi-day coding event that will take place on 14 June 2021 and on June 21-23 2021. It is designed to help teams to accelerate their own codes on GPUs using a programming model, or machine learning framework of their choice. Each team consists of two or more developers who are intimately familiar with (some part of) their application, that will work alongside one mentor with GPU programming expertise.

Participating in a GPU hackathon provides a unique opportunity for teams to jumpstart acceleration or optimization of their code on GPUs. With the help of experienced mentors, by the end of the event each team should have their code running on GPUs, or at least have a clear roadmap of how to get there.

The Application Deadline is 14 April 2021.
