Submissions sought for GPU symposium

There will be a Symposium on Chemical Computations on General-Purpose Graphics Processing Units in conjunction with the 240th American Chemical Society National Meeting in Boston, Aug. 22-26.

The symposium will provide technical presentations from the companies who are advancing the development of general-purpose graphics processing units (GP-GPUs), discussions of the challenges involved in effectively programming GP-GPUs, and presentations on the use of GP-GPUs in a broad range of chemical applications. The symposium is organized by Thom H. Dunning, Jr. and Volodymyr Kindratenko, National Center for Supercomputing Applications, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Robert J. Harrison, University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Jeffrey Madura, Duquesne University; and Todd J. Martinez, Stanford University.

Researchers interested in presenting at the symposium should submit an abstract per instructions posted on the ACS website by April 5. All submissions will be reviewed by the symposium organizers, and the accepted submissions will be presented as either oral presentations or posters.

Invited presentations include Michael Klein (Temple University), Mark Gordon (Iowa State University), Alan Aspuru-Guzik (Harvard University), Vijay Pande (Stanford University), Alexey Onufriev (Virginia Tech), Alex Travesset (Iowa State University), Millard Alexander (University of Maryland), Ivan Ufimtsev (Stanford University), John Stone (University of Illinois), and Scott Le Grand (NVIDIA).
