Hackathon: Gather a team & register by January 15

From February 22 - March 3, Simon Fraser University (SFU) is hosting a GPU Hackathon. The event is free, online, and invites scientists and students to experiment with accelerating their HPC codes in a collaborative environment with expert mentors from National Labs, Universities and industry leaders. 

This event is open to all Compute Canada Federation users and teams will use SFU's Supercomputer Cedar, one of five national host sites within Canada's national ARC platform.

No advanced GPU skills are required, but teams will be expected to know the basics of GPU programming and profiling at the event. A collection of GPU lectures, tutorials, and labs will be made available for all participants at no fee. Hurry - the deadline to register is Friday, January 15!
