"HPC Kung-fu" is the 3D Animation Challenge organized by the National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) in Taiwan. Target participants are students of university, college, or senior high/vocational school. The NCHC hopes to encourage students to use HPC on 3D animation and cultivate talents in domains of both technology and arts.
To facilitate the domestic development of computer software and to enhance college students’ programming capabilities, the NCHC and Providence University co-hosted the “2011 Providence University National Programming Contest”, a 3-hour contest at Providence University, on May 7th, 2011. Teams from NTU, NCU, NSYSU, and NTHU won the Top Distinction awards, and teams from CHU, NTUST, PU, and CJCU received the Superiority and Excellence awards.
In recent years, the CUDA programming ability is becoming more and more important due to increasingly widespread applications of GPU in high-performance computing. In order to promote the development of GPU applications, the National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) has, for the first time, worked with NVIDIA on planning the “2011 Taiwan CUDA Programming Contest.”
