The 13th CHPC National Conference is being held in Johannesburg, South Africa, 1-5 December 2019.
CHPC is the South African National Supercomputing conference. It has several features of note for a global audience:
- The South African Student Cluster Competition team is formed based on a national head-to-head competition. Interacting with the 10 finalist teams is encouraged throughout the event.
- Women in HPC session with a particular focus on Africa specific issues and a global perspective on how to address concerns
- Various keynotes and technical talks on topics relevant to HPC users.

This conference attracts attendance from around the world including regular and significant attendance from across Africa, Europe, and North America fostering discussion among the participants.

I am seeking potential talks about storage and IO topics. Anything research oriented related to storage and IO is applicable. All talks should be accessible to a technical end-user audience and aim to inspire HPC application end-users to think differently about their storage and IO activities and possibilities. Cutting edge research topics are encouraged. Previous talk topics are available on the prior year websites or can be available on request.
The talk abstracts will be reviewed for relevance and applicability.
The abstracts can be submitted at: 
The conference website is https://chpcconf.co.za/
For more information or to pre-discuss applicability of potential talks, please email Jay Lofstead (gflofst at sandia.gov). Any questions about the venue, transportation, and local arrangements are also welcome.
