The Melbourne GPU Users group is an informal special interest group, hosted by VPAC (Victoria Partnership for Advanced Computing), to bring together GPU users from all fields and experience levels from Melbourne to learn and share their ideas and creations at friendly meetings. The Melbourne GPU Users group is a sister group of the Brisbane, Sydney and Perth GPU Users groups, and it is expected that the groups will interact through publicly accessible video conferencing facilities, taking turns at organising meetings and presentations

The group will discuss general GPU computing, including GPGPU, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, DirectX and OpenGL and related technologies. Ideally, we'll have short presentations during our meetings, as well as informal discussions on a range of subjects, including core fundamentals, hardware architectures, parallel programming as well as specific optimisations and also examples of applications for different fields of industry, science and multimedia.
