CINECA GPU hackathon will be a 4-day coding event in which teams of developers port their applications to run on GPUs, or optimize their applications that already run on GPUs. Each team consists of two or more developers who are intimately familiar with (some part of) their application, and they work alongside one mentor with GPU programming expertise.
Participating in a GPU hackathon provides a unique opportunity for teams to jumpstart acceleration or optimization of their code on GPUs. With the help of experienced mentors, by the end of the event each team should have their code running on GPUs, or at least have a clear roadmap of how to get there.
