The 6th International Workshop on GPU Computing and AI

To be held in conjunction with CANDAR'21.

Built for massive parallelism, General Purpose computing on Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU) has superseded high-performance CPU in several important tasks, including computer graphics, physics calculations, encryption/decryption and scientific computations. Also, GPGPUs have been considered as a natural alternative to fulfill the computing needs for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning applications. Recent developments have shown intensive research activity in these fields.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss and evaluate emerging techniques, platforms and applications, capable of harvesting the power of current GPGPUs as well as to share new ideas from the research area of Artificial Intelligence. (The topic of this workshop is not only “Both GPU and AI”, but also “Either GPU or AI.”)

The GCA workshop seeks for high-quality papers on various topics, including but not limited to:

  • GPU computing
    • GPU applications
    • Computer graphics on GPUs
    • GPU compilation
    • GPU programming environments
