"In just a few short years, GTC has become the single most important event for scientists and researchers who use GPUs to advance their work," said Steve Scott, CTO for Tesla at NVIDIA. "The leading figures in astronomy, bioinformatics, cloud computing and neuroscience, among many other fields, will be sharing their latest computing techniques, technologies and real-world experiences."

GTC 2012 will include keynotes, presentations, research posters, tutorials, and hundreds of instructional sessions from top experts. It will again feature the Emerging Companies Summit, where some of the world's most innovative startups showcase new technologies. It will also include networking events throughout the week, enabling experts to share information.

A partial list of those scheduled to present at GTC 2012 are experts from:

  • Supercomputing and research centers: Barcelona Supercomputing Center, CERN, National Institute of Natural Sciences/Institute for Molecular Science (Japan), Irish Centre for High-End Computing, Chinese Academy of Sciences/Institute of Process Engineering, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Naval Research Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • Corporations: Citrix Systems, Cray, GE Intelligent Platforms, HP, ING Bank, LEGO, Microsoft, Siemens Corporate Research, Synopsys, Tata Motors Limited, Technicolor VMware
