To highlight and reward the excellent research taking place at our CCOEs, we hosted an event during GTC 2012 to showcase four of their top achievements. Each of our 18 CCOEs was asked to submit an abstract describing what they considered to be their top achievement in GPU Computing over the past 18 months. An NVIDIA panel selected four exemplars from these submissions to represent their work on GPU Computing research. Each of our CCOEs has made amazing contributions, but the four CCOEs selected to showcase their work were:
Each of the four CCOE finalists will be awarded an HP ProLiant SL250 Gen8 GPU system configured with dual NVIDIA Tesla K10 GPU accelerators in recognition of this accomplishment. After the four presentations, the CCOE representatives were asked to vote for their favorite presentation and achievement. Tokyo Tech was voted as the audience favorite, and thus wins the extra bragging rights of being honored by their peers as the inaugural recipient of the CUDA Achievement Award 2012.
