Next week’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) will be 2012’s go-to event to learn about the most important GPU technologies in use today. Close to 300 educational sessions will offer insights on everything from molecular dynamics to algorithms & numerical techniques.

One session that’s drawing significant early interest is the Inside Kepler session, being held on Wednesday, May 16th at 2pm in Hall 1 of the San Jose Convention Center.

It will feature a deep dive into the features of Kepler, NVIDIA’s new high-performance, energy efficient parallel computing architecture, in a talk led by Lars Nyland (senior architect) and Stephen Jones (CUDA developer).

They’ll go into detail about the reorganized processing cores with new instructions and processing capabilities, the improved memory system with faster atomic processing and low-overhead ECC, how the Kepler GPU achieves world-leading performance and efficiency, and how Kepler will enable researchers to tackle new breeds of parallel computing problems.

To give you an idea of what to expect at this year, check out this video presentation of a GTC 2010 session.

It’s not too late to sign up to attend GTC 2012 and the hundreds of info-packed sessions like the one above.

Hope to see you at the show.
