    GPU Hackathon

    ** Application Deadline is March 4, 2021** This event begins with a preparation day on May 4 followed by the GPU Hackathon running May 11 - 13. GPU Hackathons provide exciting opportunities for scientists to accelerate their AI research or HPC codes under the guidance of expert mentors from National Labs, Universities and Industry leaders in a collaborative environment. The SDSC Hackathon is a multi-day event designed to help teams of three to six developers accelerate their own codes on GPUs using a programming model, or machine learning framework of their choice. Each team is assigned mentors for the duration of the event.

    This event will be held remotely.
