OzViz 2010


We cordially invite you to participate in OzViz 2010 workshop which will be held on 1-3 December 2010 in sunny subtropical Brisbane, Queensland. The workshop will bring together scientific visualisation practitioners from Australia and New Zealand in order to share their ideas and work in an informal atmosphere.

This year’s OzViz program will also include an informative one day OpenCL(TM) workshop with invited speakers and live demonstrations. Brochure is available for download here.

Registation for the presentations is free, however for catering purposes, please sign up here.

OpenCL workshop


Introduction:

OpenCL* (Open Computing Language) is an open, royalty-free, cross-platform standard specifically designed for general purpose parallel programming of heterogeneous systems, including modern desktop and workstation class multi-core processors (CPUs), graphics processing units (GPUs), and other accelerators such as Cell and digital signal processors (DSPs). The standard includes an API for coordinating execution between devices and a cross-platform parallel programming language. Based on ISO C99, the OpenCL-C language provides a well-defined execution environment with strict precision requirements, allowing device agnostic kernel methods to be written which can be run on any supported OpenCL device. The OpenCL standard supports task-based and data-based parallel computing, features consistent numerical requirements based on the IEEE standard for floating-point arithmetic (IEE 754), defines a configuration profile for handheld and embedded devices and efficiently interoperates with OpenGL, OpenGL ES, and other graphics APIs.


Confirmed Presenters:
Derek Gerstmann (UWA), Mark Harris (NVIDIA), Michael Houston (AMD), John Taylor (CSIRO), Tomasz Bednarz (CSIRO), Craig James (CSIRO).

Aim:
The aim of the OpenCL workshop will be to provide registered attendees with an intensive one day course which covers both a general introduction as well more advanced topics showcasing OpenCL as a technology platform. Speakers from both industry and academia will discuss a range of subjects, including core fundamentals, hardware architectures, parallel programming, as well as workload scheduling and device specific optimizations.

Program of the workshop:
 
The program for OpenCL Workshop is now available here.

Introduction to OpenCL and specification overview, OpenCL compared to other technologies, Parallel Architectures, OpenCL Memory Model, OpenCL API and Kernel Language, OpenCL C++ bindings, OpenCL/OpenGL interoperability, OpenCL for visualisation, examples, OpenCL and numerical simulations, examples.

Registation for the presentations is free, however for catering purposes, please sign up here.
