Pioneering Genomics Researcher, Chrysler Group Product-Design Visionary to Give Keynote Addresses at GPU Technology Conference

GTC 2013 to Showcase GPU-Enabled Advances in Graphics, Cloud Computing, Design Engineering, Entertainment, Science and More

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 -- GTC 2013 -- NVIDIA today announced its lineup of world-class keynote speakers for the fourth-annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC), which will be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, Calif., March 18-21.

NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang will discuss the profound and growing impact of GPU technology in gaming, science, industry, media and entertainment, design and other fields in an opening keynote address on Tuesday, March 19 at 9 a.m. PT.

On Wednesday, March 20, Erez Lieberman Aiden, a pioneering genomics researcher, will discuss his work sequencing the human genome in 3D, which allows scientists to gain deep insights into gene behavior and fundamental biological processes of life. Aiden will reveal how his team harnesses GPUs to accelerate the analysis of massive amounts of genomic information and simulate the physical process of genome folding, uncovering insights into gene expression that can now be used by thousands of researchers.

The keynote address on Thursday, March 21, will feature Ralph V. Gilles, senior vice president of Product Design, president and CEO of SRT (Street and Racing Technology) Brand and Motorsports at Chrysler Group LLC, and the mind behind some of the company's most innovative products. Providing a behind-the-scenes look at the auto industry, Gilles will review how GPUs are used to advance every step of the automobile development process -- from the initial conceptual designs and engineering phases, through product assembly and marketing. He will also discuss how Chrysler Group uses GPUs and the latest technologies to build better, safer cars and reduce time to market.

"GTC has become the single most important event for professionals who use GPUs to advance their work," said Ujesh Desai, vice president of corporate marketing at NVIDIA. "Our vision for creating this show was to give experts a platform to share their research with their peers -- and GTC 2013 promises to be the best ever."
