Lunch and Learn: GPUs for Seismic Processing

Where: Calgary, AB, CANADA

Reverse Time Migration: A commercial case study

Join HP and Acceleware for this complimentary lunch and learn as we present the latest GPU accelerated technologies for oil and gas exploration.

Complex geologies and alternative imaging methods require High Performance Computing (HPC) to produce accurate images of the subsurface. Acceleware is at the forefront of HPC technologies for the energy industry. This informative lunch and learn will highlight the powerful role that GPUs play in seismic processing plus information on current capabilities of GPUs and CPUs. A commercial case study of a GPU accelerated version of Reverse Time Migration will be presented.

Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with colleagues, hear from industry experts and gain an insight into the world of GPUs for oil and gas. Technical staff will be available to discuss first-hand the computing challenges facing your organisation.

This is an invitation event for geophysicists, software developers and engineers in the oil and gas industry. Please email us if you would like an invitation!
