Training on OpenCL and Parallel Computing

The Fields Institute will host a three day workshop on parallel computing led by expert in the field AJ Guillon. The workshop will provide trainees with a mixture of theory and hands-on experience. Trainees will learn parallel programming with OpenCL, and so will be able to apply their knowledge to CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and other accelerators such as the Intel Xeon Phi. AJ Guillon is a Khronos member and contributed to OpenCL 2.1 and the OpenCL C++ kernel language as well as being the Khronos Toronto Chapter leader.
