How to Check Out the World’s Top Accelerated Computing Innovations, All in One Place

by Liza Gabrielson

The GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2013 is less than six weeks away.

Once again, the world’s #1 event on accelerated computing will showcase scientific and engineering breakthroughs made possible by GPUs. The event runs March 18 to 21 in San Jose, Calif.

Featuring hundreds of talks and tutorials on everything from astrophysics to medical imaging and application development, GTC 2013 is the largest CUDA developer event. Thousands of the brightest minds from more than 40 countries will meet, network and share ideas.

For years, accelerated computing has been fueling the race for better science. Now, we’re seeing it advance the state-of-the-art in new commercial areas, and GTC will be the best place to see the latest in computing for big data analytics, computer vision and genomics/drug discovery.

It will also feature thought-provoking presentations about the profound impact of computational science on society. For example, world-renowned researcher and a featured speaker of TEDxBoston in 2011, Erez Lieberman Aiden, will deliver the Day Two keynote, on March 20.

3D Human GenomeErez, who invented a method for three-dimensional genome sequencing, will discuss how his work can help unravel the human genome, unlocking the mysteries around genetic causes of disease and the environmental factors that impact genetic behavior (see illustration, left). You won’t want to miss it.

Elsewhere, you’ll find that GTC 2013 is packed with compute and developer-focused sessions on breakthroughs in science and industry across many fields.

From computational sciences to astronomy, genomics, energy exploration and more,  participants are sure to find inspiration for breakthroughs of their own.

The era of accelerated computing is here. Join us at GTC 2013.
