NVIDIA is postponing its GPU Technology Conference, which was set for October 2011 to a date yet to be announced in April or May 2012, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
What’s the reason? This is what its email newsletter says:
To better align our flagship North American GTC with our growing number of GTC regional events, as well as other events in the HPC calendar, we will establish GTC as an annual springtime event. We will use the Supercomputing Conference (SC) in the fall as a leading venue for advancing GPU computing, and firmly establish GTC as an annual fixture in the spring.
It seems that the October date was too close to that of the Supercomputing Conference 11, which is set for November 12-18 in Seattle.
The company is promising an expanded series of regional events, to support interest in its CUDA language for general-purpose programming on the GPU.
