hosted at the University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong. The goal of the
course is to bring together the best researchers and the brightest young
postgraduate research students in a weeklong intensive course where
participants may exchange ideas and experiences in utilizing
state-of-the-art acceleration technologies across different application
What you'll study
During the week, experts from around the world will be delivering
lectures and hands-on exercises on cutting-edge acceleration
technologies using FPGAs, GPUs and more. Through these exercises,
students get to experience first hand the potential of using application
accelerators in their research. Students also get a chance to showcase
their latest research, and discuss their need for high-performance
computers through poster sessions.
The course’s target audiences are PhD or master students in their first 2
years of study, as well as very advanced undergraduate students in
