Advanced Hands-On OpenCL Tutorial To Kick-Off IWOCL 2016

The organisers of IWOCL 2016 (“eye-wok-ul”), the International Workshop on OpenCL announced that registration is now open for the “Advanced Hands-On OpenCL Tutorial”. The tutorial focuses on advanced OpenCL concepts and is an extension of the highly successful ‘Hands on OpenCL’ course which has received over 6,500 downloads from GitHub. Simon McIntosh-Smith, Associate Professor in High Performance Computing at the University of Bristol and one of the tutorial authors will lead the sessions. The full-day Advanced Hands-On OpenCL tutorial takes place on Tuesday 19th April at the C3 Conference Center in Vienna, Austria. The tutorial can also be combined with attendance at the full IWOCL event. Read More
