2023 UF+NVIDIA Hackathon
February 9, 2023
Together with NVIDIA and OpenACC, UFIT is hosting the second annual University of Florida Open Hackathon from May 17 – May 25, 2023.
Advanced parallel computing or GPU skills are NOT required. However, it is helpful for teams to know the basics of GPU programming and profiling. The application deadline is March 1, 2023, with selected teams being notified shortly thereafter.
Scientist and computing experts from NVIDIA, along with UFIT’s Research Computing AI team, will serve as mentors to help the hackathon teams optimize their code for GPU acceleration. UFIT will provide HiPerGator as the work platform for the hackathon. Priority acceptance will be given to UF-affiliated research groups and their collaborators, but faculty, students, and research staff from all Florida universities and SEC member institutions are encouraged to apply. Anyone with questions about the application process or the hackathon contest format are welcome to contact AI Support Team Lead Ms. Ying Zhang.
