The GPU Bootcamp is an exciting and unique way for scientists and researchers to learn the skills needed to start quickly accelerating codes on GPUs. Held as a virtual event across three half days, on Day 1, participants will receive lectures from Experts around the world working in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). On Day 2 and Day 3, only selected participants will get access to the NSM cluster to work on hands-on sessions. 

Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) under the aegis of National Supercomputing Mission (NSM) in association with NVIDIA, IIT Kharagpur & OpenACC; this Bootcamp is open to anyone working in the domain of Computational Fluid Dynamics. 

Event Format 

This 3-day Bootcamp will be hosted online in the Indian Standard Time (IST) zone. All communication will be done through Zoom, Slack and email. 


  • Presented by NSM India, the Bootcamp is open to all current researchers and students working in the domain of CFD in India.
  • Day 1 is open to all. For the hands-on sessions in Day 2 and Day 3, participants are expected to have basic experience with C/Fortran and Python. No GPU programming knowledge is required. 
  • This event has limited capacity, so please make sure that prerequisites are met before applying. 

Compute Resources 

Participants selected for Day 2 and Day 3 will be given access to the NSM GPU cluster for the duration of the Bootcamp. The selection for hands-on sessions will be based on the registration details provided by attendees and priority will be given to applicants who are currently working on CFD problems which require HPC and GPU.
