This workshop will provide an in-depth overview of GPU computing technology, provide hands-on programming opportunities, and highlight key application areas where GPUs excel and show great future potential. In the workshop, participants will overview GPU architecture generations, understand how each generation contributed to improved performance and programmability. The fundamentals of CUDA programming will be covered, as well as advanced topics such as performance optimization, fundamental algorithmic components, use of parallel libraries. Several application areas including numerical and scientific computing, signal and image processing and neural networks will be examined in order to understand the benefits of GPU computing.

Expected outcomes:

Appreciation of GPU architecture fundamentals and developments, understanding of GPU operating principles and CUDA GPU programming methods. Ability to develop massively parallel CUDA programs and knowledge of potential application areas of GPUs.

Target audience:

The workshop is intended for students and computing professionals who want to understand the architectural reasons behind the vast computational power of current GPUs, are interested in their capabilities and their programming, and want to see how this new hardware-software ecosystem can provide new opportunities in research and commercial applications.

Preliminary program:

Monday morning
GPU architecture and programming models overview, fundamentals of CUDA programming.

Monday afternoon
Hands-on CUDA programming, advanced programming techniques, performance optimization, application  case studies.

Technical requirements:

The participants should bring their own laptops with a web-browser installed. The wifi internet connection will be available in the lecture room.

Additional benefits:

Workshop participants will receive a BURA supercomputer account for 30 days after MIPRO 2019 ends. In addition, there is a possibility of extending the account on the basis of project proposal.

They will also have an opportunity to visit the fastest supercomputer in Croatia called “Bura” at the University of Rijeka. Register at

Opatija, with its 170-year-old tourism tradition, is the leading seaside resort of the Eastern Adriatic and one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Mediterranean. With its aristocratic architecture and style, Opatija has been attracting artists, kings, politicians, scientists, sportsmen, as well as business people, bankers and managers for more than 170 years.

The tourist offer in Opatija includes a vast number of hotels, excellent restaurants, entertainment venues, art festivals, superb modern and classical music concerts, beaches and swimming pools – this city satisfies all wishes and demands.

Opatija, the Queen of the Adriatic, is also one of the most prominent congress cities in the Mediterranean, particularly important for its ICT conventions, one of which is MIPRO, which has been held in Opatija since 1979, and has attracted more than a thousand participants from over forty countries. These conventions promote Opatija as one of the most desirable technological, business, educational and scientific centers in South-eastern Europe and the European Union in general.
