For those who might be in NZ during late January 2003.

Parallel Computing Workshop
New Zealand's fastest computer

Massey University recently commissioned a Beowulf cluster which is ranked
304 in the current world's 500 most powerful computers.  This
supercomputer, called Helix, links 66 dual Athlon processors and can
compute at a rate of 230 gigaflops.

We will be running a 4-day Workshop to introduce potential users to some
of the latest techniques in parallel computing.  The course of lectures
and laboratory sessions will include introductions to Linux, Fortran and
C/C++ tools and MPI programming.

When:	28-31 January 2003
Where:  Albany Campus of Massey University
Cost:	$NZ1000 which includes 6 months limited access to Helix (up to 20
hours free computing).
