On June 5-9, 2017, CRPL’s Robert Searles, Kyle Friedline, Sanhu Li, and José Monsalve Díaz traveled to Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) to participate in the GPU Hackathon hosted there. BNL hosted this event in conjunction with NVIDIA, The Portland Group (PGI), and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Robbie and Kyle acted as mentors for their teams, providing insight using their extensive GPU programming experience. Robbie served as the mentor for Team Uduh: a combination of members from University of Delaware and University of Houston.
The next GPU Hackathon called “Brookathon” is coming to the Town of Brookhaven! This Hackathon will take place at Brookhaven National Laboratory on June 5 to 9, 2017, and is jointly organized by Brookhaven National Laboratory, University of Delaware, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Stony Brook University.
