The CASPER Workshop is a semi-annual workshop where FPGA, GPU, and general heterogeneous system programmers get together to discuss new instruments in radio astronomy, as well as the tools and libraries for developing and manipulating these instruments.

The Workshop runs for one week, the 12th - 16th August, and consists of presentations in the morning, followed by various hands-on tutorials and break out sessions in the afternoon.

Further details of the conference can be found on this website, and information on CASPER generally here. Presentations from previous workshops typical of the topics represented can be found at the sites for past Workshops.

Registration for the workshop is scheduled to close on July 12, though late registration can be organized via the LOC. Funding is also available to support US based student attendance, please contact the LOC for further details.
