Post GPU Summit in Israel Draws 350 Attendees

Some 350 attendees at last week's GPU Technology Summit (GTS) in Tel Aviv heard about the progress that's being made within Israel's thriving parallel-computing community.

Two dozen speakers from NVIDIA and its partners covered topics such as GPU computing on clusters, computer vision on GPUs and image processing applications using CUDA.

One of the purposes of the event ' the third in a series of conferences around the world focused on start-ups working with GPUs ' was to showcase how up-and-comers in Israel's thriving startup community are tackling challenging new computing problems with the help of GPGPU. Similar events have taken place in recent weeks in Singapore and Taipei.

Some of those at the Israel conference were hardware providers, like HP and ASUS, which demonstrated their latest Tesla servers.

There were also ISVs working on new GPU accelerated software, like Pawlin and Mellanox.

And others demonstrated a range of cool GPU applications solving heavy computingproblems, like Rocketick and Optitex.

A half dozen start-ups participated in 'CEO on Stage' sessions, at which their chief exec presented their businesses for advice from a panel of industry experts. They includedJon Peddie (Jon Peddie Research), Eyal Niv (managing director at Giza Venture Capital) and Shai Dekel (chief scientist at GE Healthcare).

In just one short day attendees were able to see the energy behind Israel's parallel-computing ecosystem. We look forward to doing more events in the region and following the growth of participating companies from GTS 2011.
