During August and September we ran a series of seminar events across Scotland, in collaboration with three major actors in the Scottish life science sector: BioCity, BioQuarter and BioDundee.
If you weren’t lucky enough to come to one of our seminars (and the complementary lunch) on the application of HPC and Big Data in life sciences then you might want to catch up by reading the associated case study.

This summer we hosted a PRACE Summer of HPC student, Anna, who has been working with us on an HPC supercomputer cluster challenge game which she previously blogged about here. The idea of this has been to gamify the design of a supercomputer, balancing the desire for advanced components (CPU, memory and accelerators) against budget and power efficiency.

Big Data vs HPC
Whilst I was writing my talk for last week's How to Make Big Data work for your business seminar at Edinburgh BioQuarter, it occurred to me that the way computational simulation codes have evolved over the last 40 years has really been a response to big data issues.

Anna Chantzoplaki is working on the project “HPC Cluster Challenge app” with EPCC's Nick Brown and Amy Krause as part of the PRACE Summer of HPC Summer School. This project is developing a public outreach application that will allow participants to design their own computer cluster by choosing components within a fixed budget, configuring them and measuring performance.

ARCHER Impact Award 2015
ARCHER Impact Award will recognise and reward researchers working on ARCHER, as individuals or teams, whose work has had substantial impact on the economy and society. The awards will showcase the researchers, their work and the impact of the science that the UK National HPC facility, ARCHER, has enabled.

Following the success of last year's competition, we are again holding the ARCHER Image Competition, which invites all users of the national supercomputing service to share their images on the theme of "ARCHER Enabling Research".

Discussions on computing
This one-week academy is designed to give PhD students some of the skills they need to undertake the range of computational simulations and data analysis tasks that their work requires.
