An Educator's Toolbox for CUDA

SESSION: An Educator's Toolbox for CUDA (Part 1)

EVENT TYPE: HPC Interconnections, HPC Educator Program

TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Steven Brandt

Presenter(s):Karen L. Karavanic, Jens Mache, David Bunde


GPUs (graphical processing units) with large numbers of cores are radically altering how high performance computing is conducted. Programming frameworks such as CUDA and OpenCL can be used to program GPUs for computational tasks and achieve orders of magnitude improvement in performance over using the CPU alone. The importance of this approach, combined with the easy and inexpensive availability of hardware, combine to make this an excellent classroom topic. The purpose of this workshop is to provide CS educators with the fundamental knowledge and hands-on skills to teach CUDA materials. Three session leaders with a combined total of over three decades of teaching experience will present short lectures, exercises, course materials, and panel discussions.
