The 2011 GPU Technology Conference Call for Sessions will close on May 3 at 23:59 PDT.

If you’re interested in submitting a proposal for a 25 or 50 minute session, time is running out.

Each year the conference Content Selection Committee refreshes the topic areas to keep up-to-date with the latest science, research, and applications, as well as keeping the diverse interests of attendees in mind. Although submitters are not limited to these topic areas, we encourage you to use them as a guide. Full list of topics, below.

Before starting a new submission, please make sure to read the submission details on the session page.  If you are doing interesting work with the GPU in any of the areas below, don’t be shy, we want to hear from you!
