Computational hardware is changing rapidly. Two decades ago, all we needed to know was the speed of upcoming hardware, not its form or the state of its software frameworks. This is no longer true with new and novel highly parallel computing architectures being unveiled all the time.

This flux forces significant questions about re-coding and future proofing existing scientific software. The term emerging technology is beginning to be used to describe this continual state of hardware change. Unique in its aims and scope, this event will bring together experts to examine how…
