Invitation to Register

New Zealand has participated in the Pre-construction design of high performance computing for the international SKA project since November 2013.  New Zealand Alliance is the entity funded by the government to organise our efforts.  It consists of AUT, Massey University, University of Auckland, Compucon New Zealand in Auckland; and Open Parallel, Catalyst IT and Nyriad outside of Auckland.  We have organised 4 C4SKA events so far on how New Zealand contributed to SKA.  This seminar however is about how our efforts for SKA can be spinned off to New Zealand industry, economy, and the future.  This seminar is the 1st of its kind.  New Zealand Alliance is the organiser of the event.  We are inviting registrations for this event.  Registration is free of charge on a first come first served basis.
