CCOE Achievement Award 2012
CUDA Centers of Excellence (CCOEs) include some of the world's top universities engaged in cutting-edge work with CUDA and GPU computing. To highlight and reward the excellent research taking place, each of the world's 18 CCOEs was asked to submit an abstract describing their top achievement in GPU computing over the past year and a half. A panel of experts, led by NVIDIA Chief Scientist Bill Dally, selected four CCOEs to present their achievements at a special event during GTC 2012. CCOE peers at the event then voted for their favorite presentation, who won bragging rights as the inaugural recipient of the CUDA Achievement Award 2012.
The four CCOEs selected to showcase their work were:
- Barcelona Supercomputing Center, OmpSs: Leveraging CUDA for Productive Programming in Clusters of Multi-GPU Systems
- Harvard University, Massive Cross-correlation in radio Astronomy with Graphics Processing Units
- Tokyo Tech, TSUBAME 2.0
- University of Tennessee, MAGMA: A breakthrough in Solvers for Eigenvalue Problems
