 +=====2013 HPC Winter School =====
 +
 +**1 -- 6 July 2013** at the University of Johannesburg.
 +
 +The **HPC Winter School** is the CHPC's flagship course in //parallel programming//​ for high performance computing covering:
 +
 +  * Introduction to high performance computing hardware, systems and techniques
 +  * Multi-core programming with OpenMP
 +  * Using message passing (MPI) on cluster super computers
 +  * GPUs as high performance co-processors
 +  * Rapid prototyping for HPC with python
 +
 +The HPC School is now [[workshops:​hpcschool|in progress...]]
 +
 +===== OpenFOAM =====
 +
 +The [[http://​www.opensim.co.za/​|OpenSIM]] initiative will run an [[http://​www.openfoam.org/​|OpenFOAM]] workshop in Pretoria from **20 to 24 May** 2013:

 +=====GPGPU Computing with CUDA Workshop at UCT=====
 +
 +**Application deadline: 12 April 2013** ​ Go to [[http://​gpu.cs.uct.ac.za/​|gpu.cs.uct.ac.za]].
 +
 +  * 29th April to 3rd May 2013
 +  * Department of Computer Science
 +  * University of Cape Town
 +
 +Although originally designed to handle computation for computer graphics,
 +fully programmable Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) now offer a powerful
 +alternative to general purpose computational applications traditionally handled
 +by Central Processing Units (CPUs). As GPUs have overtaken CPUs in sheer
 +processing power, GPU solutions have become particularly attractive for
 +computationally intensive problems, such as data processing and physical
 +simulations.
 +
 +This course covers the practical development of algorithms and associated
 +coding in NVIDIA’s CUDA programming environment for effective general
 +purpose computing with GPUs.
 +
 +The course is aimed at UCT Computer Science Honours (4th year) students.
 +However, we have space for an additional 20 delegates. Application for
 +attendance should comprise a motivation letter and a CV/resume and be
 +emailed to Christopher Laidler (''​claidler .AT. cs.uct.ac.za''​) by the 12th April 2013.
 +
 +  * **Course Registration fee: R150** (light lunches and tea will be provided)
