Dr. Danilo Piparo, member of the CERN SFT group and the CMS collaboration will give seminars about software design and parallel computing.The seminars will include tutorial and practical sessions on parallel software development.

The training is targeted towards PhD students, post-docs and young researchers who are actively involved with the development of large scale data processing applications (simulation, reconstruction, analysis).

Familiarity and experience with basic concepts of modern OO languages are prerequisites,

El próximo Lunes 22 y Martes 23 de Octubre nos visitará el profesor de la Universidad de Málaga, Manuel Ujaldón. que posee el título CUDA Fellow 2012, que premia anualmente al científico que mejor desarrolla sus facetas de difusión de las posibilidades de programación CUDA y su aplicación en el ámbito de la investigación relacionada con el uso de los recursos de la GPU. La actividad es una iniciativa conjunta entre el CTI-HPC y la Escuela de Ingenieria Industrial de la Universidad de Valparaíso.

Due to the successful collaboration with the ONR (Office of Naval Research) the opportunity to work alongside them in the satellite image processing area has arisen. Currently the ONR and CTI-HPC are looking for enthusiastic researchers in developing one of the following topics:

  1. Ocean surface analysis. Study of oceanic sea surface (air/sea interations, oil slicks, thermal processes, etc), using dynamic equations, SAR, and MODIS.
  2. Vessel classification from hyperspectral and multispectral data. Different approaches of Hyperspectral Image techniques for solving remote sensing image classification. These privide an important feature in material identification, discrimination, detection and classification.
  3. Application of HPC in image processing. Implementation of Hyperspectral Image algorithms on HPC architectures (multi-computer clusters, hetereogeneous networks of computers, and specialized hardware architecture such as FPGA and GPU).
  4. Ship detection. Development of ship detection algorithms using SAR platform, plays an important role in the field of marine monitoring.

Surely the study of one of these topics could be an excellent opportunity for the development of a thesis project.

The next visit from the ONR experts will be in November 2011 when they will give a background of these topics as well as the use of different tools for image processing.  We will keep you informed about the exact dates and duration of their visit in our News section.
If you are interested in one of these topics, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@hpc.cl to provide you with more information.
