Join us for the 2019 Pre-Cyberinfrastructure Day (CI) Workshops at MU’s Memorial Union Stotler Lounge on Monday, May 6, 2019.
Pre-CI Day Workshops are for faculty, research scientists, graduate students, post-docs, and research-support staff who use (or are interested in using) advanced computing technologies.
Pre-CI Day Workshops offer hands-on learning about technologies, plus expert resources. Workshops range from beginning to advanced topics.
hile this event is free, registration is encouraged.
Be sure to bring your laptop and a charger for these hands-on workshops. Laptops and chargers will not be provided.
For anyone traveling from outside Columbia MO, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for parking instructions.

Presenter: Mike Gosnell, Nvidia University Ambassador
This workshop teaches the fundamental tools and techniques for accelerating C/C++ applications to run on massively parallel GPUs with CUDA. Work your way through dozens of hands-on coding exercises using a live, GPU-enabled development environment in the cloud. Learn how to write code to be executed by a GPU accelerator, configure code parallelization using the CUDA thread hierarchy, manage and optimize memory migration between the CPU and GPU accelerator, leverage command line and visual profilers to guide your work, and utilize concurrent streams for instruction-level parallelism. Finish by implementing the workflow that you have learned on a new task — accelerating a fully functional, but CPU-only, particle simulator for observable massive performance gains. At the end of the workshop,
Prerequisites: Basic C/C++ competency, including familiarity with variable types, loops, conditional statements, functions, and array manipulations. No previous knowledge of CUDA programming is assumed.
