NVIDIA announces Co-Design Lab for Hybrid Multicore Computing at ETH Zurich

In a blog post NVIDIA announced the creation of the NVIDIA Co-Design Lab for Hybrid Multicore Computing at ETH Zurich.

In the post, Peter Messmer, the director of the Co-Design Lab, describes as follows the goal of the lab: “One of the lab’s key aims is to encourage tighter collaboration among computing system architects, integrators, application developers and researchers, providing an open channel for all involved to exchange ideas and experiences. This, in turn, will be used to speed up the design of new applications and technologies that will drive the next wave of computational scientific research and discovery“.

Researcher Workshop – Dec. 11, 2013

To introduce researchers to lab personnel and provide information on available training materials and supercomputing resources, the lab will host an on-site workshop on Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013.

To be held at the ETH Zurich/Hoenggerberg campus, Room HPT C103, the workshop is free to attend, and open to researchers in Switzerland and Central Europe.

Coordination with CSCS and his newest hybrid supercomputer “Piz Daint”

The Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS) in Lugano will collaborate closely with the lab, supplying computing resources and technical expertise to help domain scientists get running quickly and efficiently on these GPU-accelerated systems.

Adding to the available hybrid multicore computing infrastructure, the newly announced CSCS “Piz Daint” GPU-accelerated supercomputer will be available to researchers through the center’s normal allocation process when it opens to the public in spring 2014.
