Introduction to GPUs Programming using CUDA
Cadence Research Laboratories –
Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) boast an impressive amount of
computational power and memory bandwidth at commodity prices
driven low by volume and competition on the gaming consumer
market. Due to the introduction of high level APIs, such as
NVIDIA's Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA), harvesting
the computational power of the GPU for general computing
applications has become straightforward. In this talk we present
an overview of NVIDIA's current GPU architecture. A brief
introduction to CUDA and a discussion of performance issues and
Carlos Pinto Coelho received his Ph.D. in
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in September
2007. In 2001 he joined the startup company AltraBroadband where
he worked on the development of the Nexxim circuit simulator. In
1999 and 2001 he received his engineering and masters degree in
Computer and Electrical Engineering from the Instituto Superior
Técnico, in Lisbon. His interests include simulation and modeling
of physical systems in general and biological systems in
particular, artificial intelligence, parallel programming
hardware, algorithms, mathematics and physics. Since 2007 he is a
researcher at Berkeley Cadence Research Laboratories.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
