Expanding on its role as CUDA Center of Excellence, University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign is launching a 13-week seminar with focus on parallel computing. Well, GPU Computing, that is. Parallel@Illinois is the name for the whole project of GPU Computing, and this seminar was organized by prof. Sanjaj J. Patel and Wen-mei Hwu.
Under a not-so-scientific moniker Need For Speed Seminar Series, this 13-week course will feature domestic alumni such as Mark Hasegawa-Johnson, Dan Roth, Narendra Ahuja, Stephen Boppart, John C. Hart, Tom Huang and Seth Hutchinson, and guests such as Keith Thulborn (UI Chicago), Sam Blackman (Elemental), Nikola Bozinovic (MotionDSP), Mark Johns (Tapulous) and Tim Sweeney (Epic).
