By DE Editors

NVIDIA has announced the addition of 20 new CUDA Research Centers and CUDA Teaching Centers.

The new institutions—located in the U.S., Germany, France, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, and Turkey—are focused on leveraging the parallel processing power of graphics processing units (GPUs). 

CUDA Research Centers are institutions that use GPU Computing across multiple research fields.  CUDA Teaching Centers have integrated GPU computing techniques into their mainstream computer programming curriculum. 

The new centers include:

CUDA Research Centers:
·  Boise State University
·  CASPUR (Italy)
·  Fraunhofer SCAI, University of Bonn (Germany)
·  Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany)
·  North Carolina State University
·  Technische Universität München (Germany)
·  University of New Mexico

CUDA Teaching Centers:
·  Arkansas State University
·  Epitech – Game Development Lab (France)
·  Georg-August-University Goettingen, Max-Planck Institute, Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (Germany)
·  Lebanese American University (Lebanon)
·  Middle East Technical University (Turkey)
·  North Carolina State University
·  San Jose State University
·  Technion, Israel Institute of Technology (Israel)
·  Universitat Kassel (Germany)
·  University of California, Riverside
·  University of Missouri – Columbia
·  University of Southern California – GamePipe Lab
·  University Paris Diderot (France)

“There are more than 350 universities worldwide teaching the CUDA programming language, and more than 100,000 programmers actively developing applications on CUDA GPUs,” says Bill Dally, chief scientist at NVIDIA.  “We continue to see growing interest and adoption of GPU computing across a wide variety of industries and scientific disciplines.”
