Last year's GPU Technology Conference allowed us to find out the first few details about Nvidia's Fermi architecture. Now, Nvidia has set a date for the second GTC: September 20, 2010. This year's conference will go on through September 23 and take place at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California.
Nvidia promises an "even broader and deeper selection of technical sessions, interactive tutorials, technology previews, and industry and academic presentations." Indeed, the event won't just be about gaming products; Harvard Professor Hanspeter Pfister gave Nvidia a ringing endorsement, stating about GTC, "It's a great venue for meeting researchers, developers, scientists, and entrepreneurs from around the world and I'm looking forward to GTC 2010." (Pfister was a keynote speaker at GTC 2009 last year.)
This year, the GPU Technology Conference will revolve around three main events:
- Emerging Companies Summit
A showcase for innovative startups to demonstrate their products and network with venture capitalists, GTC attendees, and other investors.
- GPU Developers Summit
A wide selection of content-rich sessions, tutorials, and presentations for developers, engineers, and scientists.
- NVIDIA® Research Summit
A unique opportunity for students, professors, and researchers to present their findings and collaborate.
Nvidia hasn't yet announced any specifics about exactly what attendees can expect to see. Nevertheless, the firm invites folks to visit the official GTC pages on its website to stay updated.
