PATC: Introduction to CUDA Programming

Date: 08/Apr/2019 Time: 09:00 - 11/Apr/2019 Time: 18:00


The course will take place in the UPC Campus Nord premises. Vertex Building, Room VS208

Target group: The target audiences of the course are students who want to develop exciting applications for these processors, as well as those who want to develop programming tools and future implementations for these processors.

Primary tabs


This course will provide very good introduction to the PUMPS Summer School run jointly with NVIDIA also  at Campus Nord, Barcelona. For further information visit the school website  as this school has attendee selection process.

The aim of this course is to provide students with knowledge and hands-on experience in developing applications software for processors with massively parallel computing resources. In general, we refer to a processor as massively parallel if it has the ability to complete more than 64 arithmetic operations per clock cycle. Many commercial offerings from NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel already offer such levels of concurrency. Effectively programming these processors will require in-depth knowledge about parallel programming principles, as well as the parallelism models, communication models, and resource limitations of these processors.


Basics of C programming and concepts of parallel processing will help, but are not critical to follow the lectures.
