Parallel Computing

Register now for the run starting on 24th September 2018. Today’s supercomputers are the most powerful calculating machines ever invented, capable of performing more than a thousand million million calculations every second. This gives scientists and engineers a powerful new tool to study the natural world: computer simulation.

The STFC's Software Outlook activity, funded by EPSRC as part of the Service Level Agreement between EPSRC and STFC, focuses on software technologies that are vitally important to the development and optimisation of world-leading scientific software.

This includes evaluation of new programming techniques that are essential for the timely and cost-effective exploitation of current and near-future High Performance Computing systems and demonstrating how specific software technologies can be applied to existing applications.…

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…
