ELEKS and NVIDIA Co-Organize the First Ever Ukraine GPU Meetup

The landmark event that will be held on September 25, 2014 in Lviv engages CUDA practitioners in an interactive discussion on leading topics related to massively-parallel programming, HPC, GPU computing and their application to scientific and commercial projects.

Lviv, Ukraine, September 25, 2014 --(PR.com)-- ELEKS is excited to announce the company’s sponsorship of the inaugural GPU Computing Lviv meetup - the first ever local NVIDIA-supported CUDA community event, held on September 25, 2014 at ELEKS headquarters in Lviv, Ukraine.

The event creates an opportunity for local CUDA experts and technology professionals to meet in person, share experiences and discuss leading industry topics and trends within a friendly collaborative atmosphere.

The organizer of this meetup is Taras Shpot, one of ELEKS’ brightest CUDA and C++ specialists. Taras is the first developer at ELEKS to earn CUDA certification, demonstrating exceptional skills and a thorough understanding of NVIDIA CUDA and related technologies. At this meetup, Taras will speak about image processing using GPUs and share insights from two significant ELEKS HPC projects: image matching and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) processing solutions.
