GPU Developments in the Field of Finite Element Simulations
April 29, 2010, TU Wien, Austria.
Several scientist at TU-Vienna, TU-Graz, and University of Vienna started GPU based software developments within or around the field of finite element simulations. Other groups in this area like to go into this field in the near future.
A lot of experience of classical CPU based developments (solvers, mesher, visualizer) is available. The usage of such software tools in practical applications can be also found at these Universities. The time is ready to transfer this knowledge to GPUs in order to be prepared for the next processor generation. Such a task can not be done by single research group. Furthermore, it will need an additional financial support if Austria likes to contribute in a remarkable way. This workshop is motivated by these activities and trends. It indents to:
- bring scientists together within and in the surroundings of the GPU based field of finite element simulations,
- work out interferences, define connections and cooperations,
- try to coordinate future research activities, and
- discuss join ventures for the application of specific grants in the near future.
The workshop can be seen under the slogan:
"to accomplish more together"
Participants/groups are personally invited. If additional people like to join, please contact the organizer directly.

April 29, 2010, 13:00 - 18:00
TU-Vienna at the Institute of Lightweight Design and Structural Biomechanics
Gusshausstrasse 27-29, 5th floor.
The presentation of each work group should be around 10 min + 2 min for questions. A PC with MS-Powerpoint 2007 and Acrobat PDF will be available in the meeting room. The idea of the presentation is to briefly summarize:
The presentations can be splitted between 2 people of the same group but I kindly ask you to stay in sum within the 10 min time slot.
- what you are currently doing with respect to the workshop topic,
- what you plan to do in the near future, and
- where you see possible collaborations or would need help/support from other groups.
