In May 2023, the Jülich Supercomputing Center hosted another GPU Hackathon together with HZDR, HIDA, and OpenHackathons. The 2023 Helmholtz GPU Hackathon brought together around 50 scientists to work together on accelerating the performance of their scientific applications.

Every year, the Hackathon provides participants with the opportunity to enhance their AI or HPC research with the guidance of experts. This year, ten teams from various scientific domains participated in the Hackathon. The participants identified optimization potential, discussed strategies, and implemented improvements.

The participating teams, including the Helmholtz Imaging Project SmartPhase, made progress during the event, ranging from optimizing code segments to increasing computational intensity and reducing data movement.
