Applications for online ENCCS GPU hackathon close on 6th October

Hackathon dates: 6 & 13-15 December 2021

Published Sep 29, 2021

If your research team would like to work on your own project with assistance from expert mentors for a full week, make sure to get your application in quickly!

This ENCCS GPU hackathon will be designed for teams to work in productive sprint sessions. A wide variety of different projects are possible - here are some examples.

  • Accelerating applications written in common languages – C/C++, Fortran, Python
  • Using OpenACC to gradually offload work to GPUs and incrementally improving the performance
  • Identifying expensive kernels and porting them to CUDA
  • Profiling already GPU accelerated applications to find hotspots for further acceleration

The event is supported by WASP and NSC through the access to the BerzeLiUs system.


Teams are expected to bring their own code or project to the event and be motivated to make progress during the hackathon. No advanced GPU skills required, although teams are expected to know the basics of GPU programming and profiling at the event. A collection of GPU lectures, tutorials, and labs are available for all participants at no fee. Please contact the organizers for more information to help you prepare for the hackathon.
