    (to be held in Conjuction with Supercomputing 2009)

ATIP's First Workshop on HPC in India will be held on Nov. 20, 2009 at
Portland, OR, USA in conjunction with the Supercompting 2009 Conference.
The main goal of this workshop is to showcase Indian research on HPC at
SC-2009. The workshop also serves several other purposes, including
bringing together leading researchers in various disciplines who use HPC
extensively, to discuss new developments and needs related to HPC. It
would also enable networking with HPC researchers from all over the
world which would lead to potential collaboration. Thus the overall
objective is to stimulate discussions on the use of HPC, to define the
grand challenge problems in these areas, and how one could derive
benefits from knowing HPC work in related disciplines.

The workshop would include a significant set of presentations and panels
from a delegation of  researchers from Indian Institutions, Research
Laboratories, Industry and Government Agencies. Student posters from
graduate students would also be presented at the workshop. An initial
list of confirmed speakers include:
