CLCAR 2012 version, the Latin American Conference on High Performance Computing start with the tutorial sessions. This year in Panama City, Panama, organizers offer two important tutorials: "Grid Computing from Grid'5000", supported by the French wide e-infrastructure project Grid'5000-Aladdin and, "NVIDIA CUDA for Beginners" supported by NVIDIA.

The first one tutorial is led by Pierre Neyron, Engineer of the CNRS (Centre Nationale de Recherche Scientifique), the National Centre for Scientific Research in France. Pierre is based in Grenoble and he is one of the responsible for the development and action of Grid'5000-Aladdin. The interest of Grid'5000-Aladdin project to support the tutorial is to help the creation of cyber-structures for scientific research in computer science and informatics.

The second tutorial, "NVIDIA CUDA for beginners" is a tutorial offer for everyone interested in exploit hybrid architectures. Monica Hernandez, young engineer responsible of development and support to users of the High Performance and Scientific Computing Unit of the Universidad Industrial de Santander, Colombia, manages the tutorial. 

The tutorial is sponsored by NVIDIA, in the context of the NVIDIA Teaching Academic Program and during the tutorial, participants use GUANE-1, the most powerful supercomputer in Colombia today, based in GPUs of the Universidad Industrial de Santander under the responsibility of  the High Performance and Scientific Computing Unit at Bucaramanga.
