Advanced research computing - open event

Aspects of advanced research computing activities will be presented and discussed at a special event being organised by the University’s High Performance Computing (HPC) team on 28 March.

The event will bring together researchers engaged in computational research to share their experiences, and includes a presentation by Professor Peter Coveney, University College London, on 'Computational Biomedicine: An Agenda for the Twenty-First Century'.

The Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Innovation will open the event, which will begin with poster presentations given by local researchers and an opportunity for discussion over lunch.  The Vice Chancellor Michael Arther will open the afternoon's formal agenda, celebrating the inauguration of the new HPC service, ARC1.  During the afternoon a series of short talks will be given by researchers engaged in high performance and grid computing activities, focusing on the techniques incorporated into their work and the successful outcomes.

The event will take place in the Great and Little Woodhouse Rooms at University House on Monday 28 March between 12:15 - 4.30pm.
