The call for applications is now closed.

GPU Hackathons are multi-day intensive hands-on events designed to help computational scientists and researchers port and optimize their applications using GPUs. These events pair participants with dedicated mentors experienced in GPU programming and development. Representing distinguished scholars and preeminent institutions around the world, these teams of mentors and attendees work together to realize performance gains and speedups by taking advantage of parallel programming on GPUs. 

The goal of the GPU Hackathon is for current or prospective user groups of large-scale, GPU-accelerated systems to port their applications to GPU accelerators or to further optimize already ported applications. Participating teams should leave the event either with applications running on GPUs or a clear roadmap of next steps to leverage GPUs.
