"Efficient use of GPU-accelerators to solve large problems" contest third tage starts

19 Sep 2011 Moscow - T-Platforms supported by M.V. Lomonosov MSU, has lauched the third stage of the competition of innovative projects for "effective use of GPU-accelerators to solve large problems". As the main objective of the contest, its organizers consider a demonstration of potential of graphics cards as an effective tool to speed up implementation of the most demanding computing projects. The contest prize fund is 10 million rubles.

Scientists at M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, RAS institutes, Russian higher schools, as well as industrial and commercial companies are carrying out a lot of research for energy, medicine, pharmaceutics, nanotechnology and other strategically important areas of science. To speed up solution of such problems, computing clusters are used based on hybrid architecture that combine traditional CPUs and graphics accelerators. As part of this project, T-Platforms and M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University intend to stimulate Russian research and industrial organisations to conduct long-term research that will contribute to the active development of the domestic economy.

The contest is conducted in three stages. In the first stage, completed in late February, 30 most interesting problems were selected from a scientific and practical point of view, associated with the design of industrial equipment, exploring new oil, gas and other minerals deposits, software development and creating new pharmaceuticals.

At the second stage, participants presented reports on the results of test works of the first stage and were able to continue using the computing resources of the Moscow State University. At the end of the second phase, the expert committee selected 15 most promising projects and allocated 3 million rubles for their implementation.

As a result of the third and final competition stage, eight projects will be announced to receive 500 thousand rubles each to continue their studies. The awarding ceremony will take place on November 22, 2011 at RSC'11 Supercomputing Conference.

"The contest our company is conducting in co-operation with the Moscow State University will enable the international scientific community to most fully assess the potential of GPU-accelerators for solving

compute-intensive problems", stated Vsevolod Opanasenko, CEO of T-Platforms. "Equally important is the event for our business", he added. "Analysis of the winning projects will help T-Platforms' experts to better understand the needs of a particular branch of the national science and industry, that would allow for more effective work with new clients, including creating innovative products based on hybrid architecture."
