CSC/AMD OpenCL Competition

The University of Waterloo Computer Science Club and AMD are running an OpenCL programming competition. If you're interested in writing massively parallel software on the OpenCL platform, come register for the competition! You'll have a chance to win an HP laptop or AMD graphics card.

What is this OpenCL of which you speak?

On February 16th, 2012, we ran a tutorial on writing OpenCL programs. Slides are available here. You can drop by our office in MC 3036 to pick up an OpenCL reference book, courtesy of AMD.


You can register to participate in the contest here. If you want to participate and possibly win prizes, you'll need to register between the 16th of February and the submission deadline. On March 2nd, we'll be holding a contest code party. All contestants (and their friends!) are invited; the submissions deadline will be at 11:59 PM. At the conclusion of the party, there will be judging and prizes. Participants will have the chance to win a laptop or AMD graphics card.

The problem set is available here.

If you have any questions, please contact or drop by the Computer Science Club in MC 3036. We hope you'll join us!
