 +=====General Information=====
 +
 +====The CHPC Winter School consists of:====
 +
 +1) The undergrad **//2014 Student Cluster Competition//​**
 +
 +and
 +
 +2) The postgrad **//2014 HPC Winter School in Parallel Programming//​**
 +
 +====VENUE:​====
 +
 +Both events take place in the Computer Science building on the Upper
 +Campus of UCT.  ​
 +
 +====REGISTRATION====
 +
 +**Room 303 of Computer Science** from **08:00** on **Monday 30 June 2014**.
 +
 +
 +====PROGRAMME:​====
 +
 +The Winter School starts at 08:00 on Monday 30 June 2014 with
 +registration in room SC303, on the third floor of the
 +Computer Science building.  ​
 +
 +The two events then begin at 09:00 in LT 3.02 for the Competition and
 +3.03 for the Parallel Programming School.
 +
 +A more detailed programme will be provided at registration.
 +
 +Also see this [[workshops:​hpcschool|wiki]].
 +
 +
 +====MAPS:​====
 +
 +See the UCT [[http://​www.uct.ac.za/​contact/​campus/​|maps]].
 +
 +If you are driving yourself to the School, see the route maps at
 +http://​www.uct.ac.za/​contact/​route/  ​
 +
 +You should park in the P6 parking lot and walk along University Avenue
 +to the Computer Science building as shown in the map at 
 +http://​www.uct.ac.za/​images/​uct.ac.za/​contact/​campusmaps/​big/​uctuppercampus.jpg
 +The blue disk (P6) indicates the parking lot.
 +
 +The red disk (JS) just next to it shows where the Jamie Shuttle from the
 +residence will drop you off, if you are in
 +
 +
 +====RESIDENCE:​====
 +
 +Students who will be accommodated by us during the Winter School will be
 +staying in Baxter Hall on Lower Campus. ​ Look at the map
 +http://​www.uct.ac.za/​images/​uct.ac.za/​contact/​campusmaps/​big/​uctmiddlelowercampus.jpg
 +and see that Baxter Hall is just above the note "To Rosebank Station"​.  ​
 +
 +The CHPC is just below Rosebank Station, not shown in the map, and we
 +will arrange an excursion to the Centre for those interested in seeing
 +South Africa'​s supercomputer centre.
 +
 +NB: note the blue dashed line on the map that leads from Baxter Hall to
 +Upper Campus. ​ This is the "blue light" pedestrian route from the
 +residence to Upper Campus. ​ It is patrolled by campus security and the
 +recommended safer walking route.
 +
 +There is also the regular Jammie Shuttle bus transport from just next to
 +Baxter Hall, the red (JS) indicates the terminal, which you can catch
 +every day to get to Upper Campus quickly.
 +
 +
 +====FLIGHTS:​====
 +
 +Students who have their travel sponsored by us should have received your
 +e-tickets by now.  Note that transport to and from your home airport is
 +at your own expense and own responsibility.
 +
 +When you arrive at Cape Town airport, we will have the Jamie Shuttle
 +service available to pick you up.  Look out for the person with the
 +"CHPC Winter School"​ sign.
 +
 +And at the end of the Winter School, the Jamie Shuttle service will also
 +shuttle you back to Cape Town airport for your return flight.
 +
 +=====About=====
 +
 +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
 +  * High performance co-processors
 +  * Rapid prototyping for HPC with python
 +
 +Applications for The 2014 HPC Winter School are now **closed**.
