15 June 2011

Dear colleagues,

The Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC) invites you to attend its 2011 National Conference themed: Better HPC and data-curation adoption, better research and industrial development.

CHPC 2011 will be held from 7–9 December 2011 at the CSIR International Convention Centre (ICC), in Pretoria.

The CHPC is one of the major pillars of the Department of Science and Technology’s cyberinfrastructure initiative and aims to increase South Africa’s competitiveness through promoting the adoption of high performance computing (HPC) and data technology tools across all sectors. With this vision in mind, the CHPC endeavours to promote a multi-array of vibrant and productive computational research communities alongside experientialists.

CHPC 2011 aims to explore the contributions and expectations of policy makers, research communities, information communications vendors, industry and academia through a series of contributed and invited papers, presentations and open discussion forums. Both local and international stakeholders and key players will have the opportunity to harness synergies in an effort to promote and appreciate the role of cyberinfrastructure in the advancement of science and engineering in South Africa.

The conference will contain numerous domain-specific breakaway sessions and will be followed by advanced tutorials in high-level HPC tools and applications.
