Dear Colleagues

We are very happy to announce the workshop High-performance Signal and Data
Processing 2014. The workshop aims to bring together key people to discuss
grand challenges facing the signal processing community in Radio Astronomy,
Gamma Ray Astronomy and Particle Physics, and to provide knowledge
sharing to delegates in both a lecture format, as well as a classroom
environment for hands-on hardware and software training. General overviews
and in-depth presentations will be given.

The event will take place at the Wits Professional Development HUB at the
University of the Witwatersrand, the week of January 27th to January 31st 2014.
We are honored to have the following keynote speakers at the event:

Dr. Peter Jenni, former Spokesperson of the ATLAS experiment at CERN

Prof. Justin Jonas, MeerKAT Associate Director of Science and Engineering

Prof. Naba Mondal, Spokesperson of the India-based Neutrino Observatory

Keynote addresses will be followed by plenary sessions for in-depth
presentations by experts in areas of physics and engineering. Students and
young researches are also welcome to deliver presentations. Several
hands-on sessions with FPGA-based boards, RHINO and ROACH, will be
provided. A session on GRID software is also envisioned.

The registration and abstract submission are now open till December 31st 2013.
It is envisioned to publish a book of proceedings. There are funding
