6th HPCx Annual Seminar: Complementary Capability Computing


The Seminar

As the national HPCx service enters its sixth year of operation, this year's seminar looks at the wide range of science being performed on the system. It also looks forward to the exciting opportunities for novel exploitation of the HPCx architecture as the service extends through 2009, and at the future of HPC systems worldwide.

The 6th HPCx Annual Seminar will take place on Tuesday, 17th June 2008 at the e-Science Institute, Edinburgh.

Registration (free for academics)

In addition to the Annual Seminar, we are also hosting a Novel Programming Languages for HPC workshop on the 18th June 2008.
