The community of Edinburgh research software engineers (CERSE) held their second gathering on Wednesday 21st November in the Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) main building.
The meeting was attended by around 50 participants, an interesting mix of researchers, software developers, systems admins and research support/management staff, from the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University. It is intended to keep these gatherings open to all Higher Education and research institutions of the Edinburgh area.

Pablo C. Cañizares came on an HPC-Europa3 visit to EPCC from 23 July–24 October 2018. In this blog article he summarises his visit.
Hi there! I'm Pablo C. Cañizares, a PhD student in Computer Science from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), Spain. I work in the Design and Testing of Reliable Systems group in the Computer Science Faculty of the UCM. I visited EPCC for three months under the HPC-Europa3 transnational access programme and was hosted by EPCC's Dr David Henty.

With jobs submitted to a batch system, supercomputing has traditionally been centred around an offline, non-interactive approach to running codes such as simulations. However, it is our belief that there is great potential in fusing HPC with real-time data for use as part of urgent decision-making processes in response to natural disasters and crises.

We are very pleased to have been accepted as a Women in HPC (WHPC) Chapter, a community-level group that fulfils the WHPC mission locally.
EPCC was one of the founders of WHPC, and the introduction of the Chapter and affiliate pilot programme is a source of pride, particularly as this will allow WHPC knowledge, expertise and activities to be tailored to the needs of local HPC communities.
