Kickoff OpenGPU Project - 2010/03/25
OpenGPU project Kickoff
In partnership with the non-profit organization Aristote, the official launch of the OpenGPU project took place at the premises of Ecole Polytechnique on the 25 March 2010 and was attended by over 120 people. All the partners involved in this project covered its main objectives: a chain of parallelization tools based on the OpenCL standard, a reference architecture aiming at measuring the performances and consumptions of the optimized calculations and set of industry codes allowing the project to rely on real use cases. Creating an active community around the theme of parallelization, in collaboration with Ter@tec, is also part of the OpenGPU's objectives. It is within this context that the first training on GPU architectures, held at Jussieu April 5, 2010, welcome 35 participants joined by students from EPITA and development managers for IGN and Ecole Polytechnique.
