GPU Day 2018

The Future of Computing, Graphics and Data Analysis

21-22 06 2018

About the GPU Day


The 8th in the conference series organized by the Wigner Research Centre for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences is dedicated to the fields of parallel and high-performance computing, visualization and data analysis in scientific and industrial applications.

This year's event is sponsored by Lombiq Ltd. and EPAM Systems Ltd.

The GPU Day adopts the Berlin Code of Conduct.
