Today is the last day of the NVIDIA GPU Technology conference and the CULA team could not be any happier about how the show went.

First, let me share our general impression about this year's event.  While not as intimate as the previous one, we enjoyed the larger venue and the spacious exhibit hall.  This new format made it easy to circulate and hold meetings with our friends at NVIDIA and our partners as well.

Our booth was strategically located right next to the Men's room, but it was the GE Magic1 rugged computer displayed on our table that attracted a large crowd and sparked some great conversations about the work we've been doing in the military space. A lot of people came by to grab a CUDA training flyer and ask questions about what is coming down the pike for CULA and the sparse project.

We had a packed room at our first presentation, GPU Technology for Military Applications, and while we can't share the presentation here, if you would like to learn more about it, visit our EM Photonics site.

Our talk on CULA was also very well attended and there will be another post here later sharing some of the cool stuff our engineers are doing to take it to the next level.  Stay tuned! :-)

After attending the keynote presentations and many of the talks, it became clear: the GPU technology trend has caught on and has significantly impacted how the scientific community is advancing their research work today.  In summary, GPUs for general purpose computing is no longer just 'talk'... it's 'action'  and it is happening NOW.   (and we love it!)

Did you also attend the event?  We'd love to hear your impressions too, just drop us a line or leave a comment here.
