Call for participation/papers:

HPSPSA2016 – High Performance Signal Processing South Africa Conference: 25 – 29 January 2016

The 2016 Collaboration for Astronomy Signal Processing and Electronics Research (CASPER) workshop will be held in Cape Town from 25 to 29 January 2016, co-located with the High Performance Signal Processing South Africa Conference (HPSPSA) 2016. Details are available at

The conference follows largely the same structure as in the past: keynote presentations, tool presentations, research presentations, working group meetings, poster presentations and tutorials. If you would like to give a short 15 minute oral research presentation (e.g. about your research) or facilitate a round table discussion (e.g. discussion concerning specific technology needs or problems), please provide a proposed title and short abstract, which will be reviewed for consideration of its inclusion into the conference.

While astronomy processing is the main emphasis, an added theme for this year is the use of radio astronomy installations for applications other than astronomy, such as uses for atmospheric analysis and tracking objects in orbit. The conference has presentations and tutorial opportunities relevant to digital back-end development; many of these topics will have some relevance and problems in common to those related to various types of signal and data processing, including radio astronomy data processing, particle physics data acquisition and processing, radar system back-end data processing, among other application uses.

Registration and details about the programme, including the keynote speakers, and the tutorials that will be available are on the web at
