        entrepreneurs and venture capitalists involved in the GPU computing
        ecosystem.

GPU Developer Summit

    --  A 3-day series of technical presentations, tutorials and panels aimed at
        developers of consumer, professional and high performance computing
        applications looking to exploit more of the GPU's parallel processing
        power using industry-standard languages such as C/C++ and Fortran as
        well as APIs such as Direct3D, DirectX Compute, OpenCL(TM) and OpenGL.

NVIDIA Research Summit

    --  A summit designed by researchers and academics for researchers and
        academics. Sessions are aimed at those using GPUs in science and
        engineering research who are keen to learn how GPU computing can
        increase computational power and reduce time-to-discovery.
