History and Impact
David Kaeli (Northeastern) and John Cavazos (Delaware) started this GPGPU workshop series, which was first held in 2007 at Northeastern University. In 2008, the workshop was held with ASPLOS 2008. This trend continued and this GPGPU workshop was held with ASPLOS for the next 6 years. From 2015 to 2018, the GPGPU workshop was co-located with PPoPP. GPGPU 2019 workshop was held with ASPLOS 2019. GPGPU 2020 workshop returns to PPoPP. The average citation count (as per Google Scholar), for a GPGPU workshop paper is currently 37.5, where there have been 8 influential papers with 100+ citations.
