GPU Hackathons are five day intensive hands-on events designed to help computational scientists port their applications to GPUs using libraries, OpenACC, CUDA and other tools by pairing participants with dedicated mentors experienced in GPU programming and development. Representing distinguished scholars and preeminent institutions around the world, these teams of mentors and attendees work together to realize performance gains and speedups by taking advantage of parallel programming on GPUs.

This event is jointly organized by Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) in association with the Helmholtz Federated IT Services Software Cluster (HIFIS).


Teams are expected to be fluent with the code or project they bring to the event and motivated to make progress during the hackathon.

No advanced GPU skills required, but teams are expected to know the basics of GPU programming and profiling at the event. A collection of GPU lectures, tutorials, and labs are available for all participants at no fee. Please contact organizers for more information to help you prepare for the hackathon.

Deadline for submitting applications is January 28, 2021.
