G-Node Workshop on Neuronal GPU Computing

Apr 11 - Apr 13, 2012


organised by Michael Schmuker (FU Berlin, BCCN Berlin) Christian Kellner and Thomas Wachtler (G-Node, LMU München)
Workshop website:


Graphics processing units (GPUs) offer a low-cost approach to parallel high-performance computing. Neuronal simulations can be parallelized efficiently and are particularly well suited for implementation on GPUs. There is also great potential for GPU-based high-throughput analysis of neuronal data. The field is progressing at rapid pace, and has reached a point where it may strongly benefit from some kind of convergence between the different approaches.
To facilitate communication and foster collaboration in the field, the German INCF Node (G-Node) organizes a one-day symposium on neuronal GPU computing with an adjoint two-day developer workshop.

Invited Speakers (preliminary):
Romain Brette (École Normale Supérieure, Paris)
Andreas Fidjeland (Imperial College, London)
Dan Goodman (École Normale Supérieure, Paris)
Thomas Nowotny (University of Sussex, Brighton-Falmer)
Pierre Yger (Imperial College, London)
