ACM Workshop on General Purpose Computing on Graphics Processors

Sponsored by and Co-located with ACM SIGGRAPH
August 7-8, 2004
Wilshire Grand Hotel, Los Angeles, California

Workshop Proceedings Now Online.


Given the increasing power and usage of commodity GPUs, many researchers are using them for general-purpose computation. The GP2 workshop, to be held the Saturday and Sunday before SIGGRAPH 2004 at the SIGGRAPH headquarter hotel, will explore current issues in general-purpose computing using graphics hardware. These issues include:

  • Do GPUs have the potential of being a useful co-processor for a wide variety of applications? What are their algorithmic and architectural niches and can these be broadened?
  • What are the major issues in terms of programmability, language and compiler support and software environments for GPUs?
  • What are some of the future technology trends that can lead to more widespread use of GPUs?

This workshop will bring together leading researchers and practitioners from academia, research labs and industry working in computer graphics, scientific computation, high performance computing, computer architecture and related areas. The program will consist of invited talks, panels and poster presentations.
