14 November, Bayes Centre, Edinburgh

Here at EPCC we are gearing up for the HPC-Europa3 workshop for SMEs. This event will explain the funding available to support visits by EU experts in high performance computing to Scottish/UK SMEs (and vice versa), and also for access to major computing resources for large-scale simulations and/or data analytics.

This user-driven Centre of Excellence in Computational Biomedicine will nurture and promote the uptake and exploitation of high performance computing within the biomedical modelling community. Its users come from academia, industry and clinical practice.

Teaching at the International Centre of Theoretical Physics, Trieste

I was recently invited to teach at an HPC School near Trieste, Italy. It was housed in The International Centre of Theoretical Physics (ICTP), which is governed by UNESCO, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and Italy, and is a UNESCO Category 1 Institute. These institutes build scientific capacity in member states, essentially in developing countries.

The HPC School, organised by Ivan Girotto et al., was part of a larger event co-sponsored by OGS, PRACE and CINECA. The HPC School had 50 students from 35 Developing Countries, including Brazil and India, as expected, but also, as examples, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malaysia, Slovak Republic and Venezuela.
