GPU Hackathons provide exciting opportunities for scientists to accelerate their AI research or HPC codes under the guidance of expert mentors from National Labs, Universities and Industry leaders in a collaborative environment. Teams of researchers are paired with experienced GPU mentors to learn and apply the accelerated and parallel computing skills needed by the scientific community. Both current or prospective users of large hybrid CPU/GPU HPC clusters who develop HPC and AI applications that could benefit from GPU acceleration are encouraged to participate!
The ENCCS hackathon will be designed for teams to work in productive sprint sessions with expert mentors for a full week. A wide variety of different projects are possible, for example:
Teams are expected to bring their own code or project to the event and be motivated to make progress during the hackathon.
No advanced GPU skills required, but teams are expected to know the basics of GPU programming and profiling at the event. A collection of GPU lectures, tutorials, and labs are available for all participants at no fee. Please contact organizers for more information to help you prepare for the hackathon.
The GPU hackathon will take place on December 6th and December 13-15.
Teams attending the event will be given access to “Berzelius” for the duration of the hackathon. Berzelius is the premier AI/ML cluster at NSC. To learn more about Berzelius, please visit the links below for more information.
The ENCCS GPU Hackathon will be hosted in Stockholm, Sweden with all times Central European Time (CET).
Teams submit project proposals which are evaluated based on quality and feasibility. A call for proposals will be announced closer to the event. Invited teams are asked to register all participating team members and start preparing for the hackathon.
If your team is accepted for the hackathon, registration information will be provided along with mentor introductions and computational resource access. Accepted teams should:
Registrations are closed for this event.
This training is intended for users established in the European Union or a country associated to Horizon 2020.
