The 2010 GPU Technology Conference is now a little more than 3 months away.

We just closed speaker submissions for the GPU Technology Conference and we are in the process of going through the hundreds of entries—roughly five times more than we received last year. Getting this glimpse into the GPU computing work going on around the world, the caliber of the people submitting their work, the ideas that are being worked on, is beyond inspirational. If you attended GTC last year and thought the content was amazing then, I know you’re going to be blown away at GTC 2010.

When we launched the first GPU Technology Conference in 2009, we were focused on creating a conference that would bring together the smartest people, best ideas, and biggest opportunities in the exploding GPU computing revolution.

GTC09 Attendees

What we were not prepared for, was actually seeing the scope, amount, and quality of the work being done. From medical research and breast cancer detection and imaging, to the use of behavioral physics computation in movies,—these were problems scientists could simply not address practically previously, due to a lack of available processing power. GPU computing was enabling them to perform science that could lead to innovations that address these problems for the first time.

Developers were bringing to bear processing power that was enabling developments of new capabilities that would touch people’s lives. And entrepreneurs and businesses were working on products that were simply not possible without a revolutionary leap forward in processing power enabled by the GPU.

Check out some of the amazing material presented at GTC 2009, here.

One of the few complaints that we heard from GTC 2009 was that there was too much content and not enough time to consume it all. I’m afraid this year will be even harder on you.

GTC was also oversold last year, and we were bursting at the seams at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose. This year, we are expecting an even larger audience and to ensure that you all have room to roam, I’m pleased to report that we have moved GTC 2010 to the spacious San Jose Convention Center. Even with the larger facilities at SJCC, we will have to pick and choose the best content submissions to showcase. It’s a high-class problem to have, and one from which all of our attendees will benefit.

GTC is all about amazing content.

It is about smart people, ideas, and opportunities.

At GTC 2010, you’ll get to see the latest revolutionary work happening and the people working on them, in person.

We can’t wait. GTC attendees are in for a heck of an amazing conference.

The 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.
