EPCC at ISC 2019: booth B-1251
EPCC's booth is at B-1251.
Come and meet us at ISC High Performance 2019, where we will be very pleased to talk about EPCC’s work. You can also test yourself against our new coastal-defences demonstration or design an aircraft wing – both activities will be running on Wee Archie, EPCC’s Raspberry Pi-based supercomputer.
TeamEPCC, drawn from current students of our MSc programmes, will again be taking part in the Student Cluster Competition. You’ll find them in Booth A-1452 along with EPCC’s Xu Guo, the Team Coach. They are keen to explain their work to conference visitors so please say hello!

EPCC HPC Systems Team
Paul Clark and Philip Cass from our Systems team will be at ISC. Their interests are in vendor engagement sessions, learning about new technologies, engagement with suppliers to learn about roadmaps under NDA, and discussions around EPCC's Data Centre network replacement. Please follow up with Paul or Philip to explore any of these topics.
This project is improving and extending existing programming models with Exascale potential to make heterogeneous systems easier to use efficiently. To find out more, speak to Dan Holmes.
