The 2011 Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC) National Conference themed Better HPC and data-curation adoption, better research and industrial development will be held from 7-9 December 2011 at the CSIR International Convention Centre (ICC).
One of the major pillars of the Department of Science and Technology's cyberinfrastructure initiative, the CHPC 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 an array of vibrant and productive computational research communities alongside experientialists.
CHPC '11 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 preceded by a number of parallel workshops that will take place on 5-6 December 2011.
