GPU computing users group established

The Center for Simulation and Modeling (SAM) recently announced a new users group to bring together developers and users of graphics processing units (GPU) computing from various disciplines and experience levels.

The center is dedicated to supporting and facilitating computational-based research across campus. SAM serves as a catalyst for multidisciplinary collaborations among faculty, sponsors modeling-focused seminars, teaches graduate-level modeling courses and provides individual consultation in modeling to Pitt researchers.

The GPU users group, called GP3UG (Greater Pittsburgh general-purpose graphics processing users group) will be led by the SAM consultant team. Monthly meeting topics of discussion will include:

• Project updates by users of SAM’s GPU resources;

• GPU code development tips and tricks;

• Useful libraries for scientific computing;

• Product announcement news releases, and

• Articles on GPUs for scientific computing.
