Helmholtz GPU Hackathon 2024

Together with NVIDIA and the OpenACC organization, Helmholtz will host a hybrid Open Hackathon taking place on six days in total: on April 8 and 15 (online), and on April 23-26 (in-person in Görlitz).

Open Hackathons are multi-day, intensive hands-on events designed to help computational scientists and researchers port, accelerate and optimize their applications on a variety of data center architectures including CPUs and GPUs. The event pairs participants with dedicated mentors experienced in programming and targeted application areas to realize performance gains and speedups using a variety of programming models, libraries, and tools.

Participating teams should leave the event either with their applications accelerated and/or optimized on the latest supercomputing hardware or with a clear roadmap of the next steps needed to leverage these resources. At least three team members should participate throughout the event, who are fluent with their codes or projects, which can be classic simulation or also large scale AI models. Teams can use almost any programming model to do so, provided we find mentors for support. Each team will receive two mentors to help in the process.

Attendance and mentoring are free of charge (but participants have to cover their travel expenses to Görlitz). The Jülich HPC Systems (JURECA-DC, JUWELS Booster) will be used for the hackathon.

This hackathon is open to everyone looking to take their projects to the next level; however, priority acceptance will be given to Helmholtz-affiliated scientists and their collaborators.

Teams can apply to participate until 31 January 2024.

More information and registration can be found on the event website.
