The very first test of the visualization equipment

Yesterday evening we performed the very first test of our visualization equipment. There are still details to tweak, but the very first view convinced us that it is worth the money invested.

Croatian Science Foundation approved the second payment installment

After evaluating our half-year report the Croatian Science Foundation (NZZ) approved the second payment installment for our project.

This way NZZ will invest 100,000 euros in total into our project. The grant can be used only for purchasing computer hardware and other equipment.

Our project's domain name and Wiki pages introduced

Our project now has its own domain name:
This is now the new location of the project's homepage.

We also started with Wiki pages that will be used by users of our GPU/CPU cluster to write about various practical topics related to the cluster usage and programing on GPUs. The address is:

Programming on GPUs using CUDA (a manual written in Croatian)

Thanks to Matija Piškorec, a student from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, we now have a Croatian manual on writing codes in CUDA.

His booklet is written in Croatian and contains step by step explanations and examples of codes in CUDA. He used our GPU/CPU cluster to run and test the codes.

You can download it from here.
