Tsinghua GPU Hackathon provides exciting opportunities for scientists to accelerate their AI research or HPC codes under the guidance of expert mentors from National Labs, Universities and Industry leaders in a collaborative environment.

This is a multi-day event designed to help teams of three to six developers accelerate their own codes on GPUs using a programming model, or machine learning framework of their choice. Each team is assigned mentors for the duration of the event.

Event Format

Tsinghua GPU Hackathon will be hosted online in the China Standard Time (CST) zone. Each team will be assigned to a virtual breakout room to work with mentors on their codes and will present reports (SCRUMS) on their progress to all participants in the main virtual meeting space daily. All communication will be done through Zoom, Slack and email. 

Prerequisites

Teams are expected to be fluent with the code or project they bring to the event and motivated to make progress during the hackathon. 

No advanced GPU skills are required, but teams are expected to know the basics of GPU programming and profiling at the event. 

Compute Resources

Teams attending the event will be given access to a GPU cluster for the duration of the Hackathon.
