CUDA Training

BSC, in association with Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-BarcelonaTech (UPC) was designated by NVIDIA as a CUDA Center of Excellence (CCOE) in 2011 in recognition of their role as leading institutions at the forefront of parallel computing research.  

Together, BSC and UPC have built an Education Programme on Parallel Programming using CUDA in order to provide a cluster-aware programming environment for GPUs, to optimise mutlti-GPU runtime management with GMAC, to support GPU acceleration from the task-based StarSs programming model and its OmpSs implementation and to build a new GPU-based cluster prototype system to explore the potential of low-power GPU clusters as High Performance Computing platforms.

The course will present the parallelization of several widely-known image and video processing algorithms such as color space conversion, gaussian filtering, and histogramming. Its aim is to be an initial approach to parallel programming to those who may be interested in the potential parallelization of the applications they work with. The course is delivered by the GPU Center of Excellence (GCOE) awarded by NVIDIA to the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in association with the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC) as a Severo Ochoa workshop.
