OpenCL training in Amsterdam - 4 days

This event is now over

We've collected some of the more interesting items from this event for you:

April 22-25, 2014
Science Park 107, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Every month StreamComputing offers an OpenCL training in Mathematics or Media-operations.


Training runs over 4 days, from basics on the first morning to specialized subjects on the last day. Bring your own laptop, or login to a compute-server onsite.

The first three days will be around learning to design and program OpenCL software, using various examples. The fourth day will be split into math and media.

  • The Mathematics module is based on “OpenCL in Action" by Matthew Scarpino.
    It covers reduction, sorting, matrix-operations and signal processing. If you work on graphs, matrices and data-manipulation, this is for you.
  • The Media-operations module is based on “Heterogeneous Computing with OpenCL” second edition by Benedict Gaster, Lee Howes, David R. Kaeli, Perhaad Mistry & Dana Schaa.
    It covers convolution, video-processing, histogram and mixed particle simulation. Extra subjects are OpenCL-OpenGL interop and code-optimisation. It is fit if you work with images, sound and video.

Both training-modules are based on a book, and enriched with nowhere-else-to-be-found information, explanations about parallel algorithm design and the examples+experience of the instructor, Vincent Hindriksen. About 50% of the training is lectures and 50% practicals. The training materials get improved every time
