Are you interested in exploring the full potential of graphics processing units (GPUs) and how they can optimise the performance and workload capacity of Monte Carlo simulations? If so, sign up for the upcoming workshop on heterogeneous computing architectures, taking place at CERN from 13 to 14 November: https://indico.cern.ch/event/1312061/.
Free and open to all, the “Event generators' and N(n)LO codes' acceleration” workshop is being organised jointly by experts from CERN’s Theory, Experimental Physics and Information Technology departments.
The event will run over two days, Monday and Tuesday, and will be an excellent opportunity to discover ways to improve the computing performance of Monte Carlo event generators and higher-order perturbative calculations. In particular, participants will learn more about the transition to heterogeneous hardware architectures beyond the general-purpose central processing units (CPUs).
The workshop will be held in hybrid format: both the morning and afternoon sessions will be held physically at CERN and broadcast over Zoom. For those on site, a welcome drink will be offered following the end of the last afternoon session on Monday.
A detailed agenda and a Zoom link will be made available shortly, but you can already suggest topics or discussion items using the “comments” section of the registration page: https://indico.cern.ch/event/1312061/registrations/96851/
*Given the importance of the topic, this kick-off meeting will mark the launch of a series of similar workshops in 2024 onwards.
