EuroHack provides a unique opportunity for current or prospective users groups of large hybrid CPU-GPU systems to either (1) port their (potentially) scalable application to GPU accelerators, or (2) optimize an existing GPU-enabled application, on a state-of-the-art GPU system. The goal is that the development teams leave at the end of the week with applications running on GPUs, or at least with a clear roadmap of how to get there.

We are pleased to announce that submissions for EuroHack19 are now open.

We invite teams of minimum 2 to maximum 4 members to propose an application to be ported to or optimized on GPU. Successful teams will be joined by two mentors during this 5-day hands-on workshop. The mentors come from national laboratories, universities and vendors, and besides having extensive experience in programming GPGPUs, many of them develop the GPU-capable compilers and help define the OpenACC standard. Space will be limited to 8 teams, with 2 mentors for each team.

The team coordinator needs to fill out the application 2019 GPU Hackathons website (please select "CSCS” hackathon) and give us as much information in the form as possible) by July 7, 2019 (anywhere on Earth). Groups will be notified about acceptance or rejection of their application by July 24, 2019. Please note that, in contrast to the on-line application form, we can only accept teams with 2-4 members.

While teams will have to pay for their own travel and accommodation, the hackathon itself (including lunches) are sponsored and are thus free of charge.
