High performance computing provides the key to analyse and solve complex problems in science and technology. On this full-day workshop, we will inspire you by research success stories listening to our international speaker Jordi Muela from Barcelona Supercomputer Center and colleagues from KTH as well as provide you information on how to get started and communicate tips and tricks from our experts on how to code best for a GPU architecture. The event is organised by the KTH Digitalisation Platform and PDC Center for High Performance Computing.

Time: Thu 2024-04-25 09.00 - 17.00

Location: Arena, Teknikringen 1, KTH main campus
