NVIDIA CUDA Research Center (2014-2016)

The University of Seville, through the Research Group on Natural Computing, was a NVIDIA GPU Research Center for the year 2016, as a NVIDIA CUDA Research Center during 2014 and 2015. Unfortunately, the program of NVIDIA research centers is discontinued. NVIDIA donated a Tesla K40 to our group in 2014. The PIs of the CRC for 2014 were Miguel Ángel Martínez-del-Amor and Mario J. Pérez-Jiménez, and for 2015 and 2016 were Agustín Riscos-Núñez and Mario J. Pérez-Jiménez.

Transcript of the news in 2014, when NVIDIA first granted the CRC to the University of Seville:

The american company NVIDIA has granted a project presented by Miguel A. Martínez del Amor and Mario J. Pérez-Jiménez, members of the Research Group on Natural Computing of the University of Seville, given the "vision, quality, and impact of the research leveraging CUDA technology".

As a result, the University of Seville has been selected as a CUDA Research Center for the year 2014. Thus, until January 29, 2015, the University of Seville will enjoy a series of benefits, including a graphics card Tesla K40 (last generation) for the research group on Natural Computing, discounts on equipment from NVIDIA under the Centers Reward Program, online training sessions tailored for the University of Seville, and support of the NVIDIA technical personnel.

The head of the research group, Mario J. Pérez Jiménez, considers that this project award will represent an important/decisive impulse to the acceleration process of the simulators that are under development in the framework of unconventional cellular machines
