GPU Technology Conference (GTC) takes place Sept. 20-23, 2010 at the San Jose Convention. You can stay up to date by following the GTC blog RSS feed, signing up for our email list or joining our GTC Facebook fan page.

We always strive to engage the community during NVIDIA corporate events and at this year’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) we continue that tradition by partnering with the NVIDIA Foundation — NVIDIA’s philanthropic organization – to raise funds for education and cancer research.

During last year’s inaugural GTC, we held a charity social in downtown San Jose. A percentage of food and drink revenues from the event were donated to fund a computer lab at McKinley Elementary School – the recipient of NVIDIAs Project Inspire. Project Inspire is an NVIDIA-hosted employee volunteer project where we spend an entire day beautifying a school in need. The GTC charity social resulted in the donation of 25 new computers.


This year, we aren’t limiting our philanthropic/charity efforts to those folks who can join us in person. We’d like to invite anyone who is interested in participating, to make a $25 tax-deductible donation to one of the following two initiatives. All donations will be matched by the NVIDIA Foundation.

1. Compute the Cure. Providing cancer researchers with technology and financial support.
2. Visualize Math and Science. Using 3D simulations to get youth interested in math and science.
