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.
