SIG Workshops

The CHPC actively partners with Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to address the needs of specific research domains.

Through collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders, the CHPC and its community are able to link up with technology missions in the National R&D Strategy in order to jointly address a wide range of notable challenges.

Stakeholders, general users and members of the CHPC have self-assembled into Special Interest Groups (SIGs) involving various research areas:
 

  •     Advanced Computer Engineering
  •     Astrophysics, Astronomy & Cosmology
  •     Bioinformatics & Epidemiology
  •     Chemistry, Biochemistry & Material Science
  •     Computational Earth Science
  •     Computational Engineering
  •     Computational Finance
  •     Computational Graphics & Visualisation
  •     Computer Science & High-end Computing Technology
  •     Computational Physics


Several multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional collaborations resulted from this partnership framework. SIG Workshop Sponsorships have enabled the successful hosting of several workshops by local and international experts in different regions of South Africa, involving not only academia, but also experts from industry and the public sector.

Python course held at the CHPC

An introduction course to Python programming was held at the CHPC, Rosebank during September 2010.

Over 30 participants, originating mostly from the Oceanography Dept., UCT and CSIR attended the 5 day course, which included post-graduate students as well as experienced researchers. They were introduced to the basics of object-oriented python programming. A number of examples illustrating the power of Python were also show-cased. This Python course aimed to introduce a wide range of researchers to the power of python as well as help scientists migrate from Matlab-based programming to open-source Python.
