BioExcel is a newly launched Centre of Excellence that helps academic and industrial researchers to use high-performance computing and high-throughput computing in biomolecular research. 

We are running a number of events in September and October and I would be very grateful to anybody who circulates these to people or groups that may be interested (and bonus points if you are willing to share with me details of where/to whom you publicise so that we can reduce cross-posting).

 

Collaborations Workshop 2016

The Software Sustainability Institute's Collaborations Workshop 2016 is now over. If you blinked, you missed it. You shall now have to wait until 27-29th March 2017 for the next one, to be held at the Leeds Business School.  I still think that this is one of the best networking conferences around and well worth attending, though for the purposes of full disclosure I have to admit that I have a dual role: as a peripheral organiser as well as a full workshop attendee. The workshop runs over two days and is followed by a hack day which I was unable to attend because of other commitments.

On the 2nd and 3rd of March the Software Sustainability Institute (SSI) held its first All Hands Meeting in Lyndhurst, near Southampton. This provided an opportunity for SSI staff - distributed between Edinburgh, Manchester, Oxford and Southampton - to meet face-to-face and to collectively carry out a number of tasks that are of interest to the SSI. It proved to be an interesting and useful two days.

The University of Edinburgh is leading an international bid to secure European funding to support the establishment of a European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) “Knowledge and Innovation Community” (KIC) focused on healthy living and active ageing.

Funded by the EIT through Horizon 2020 (The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation), LifeKIC, as the Scotland-led KIC is called, will support the EIT and EU’s goal of delivering the triple win of: increased healthy life years; economic growth and increased competitiveness; and sustainable health and care.

The BonFIRE project created a multi-cloud facility to foster experimentation and testing of cloud and distributed applications. Just last week BonFIRE had its final, successful review. The project was rated Excellent, a true reflection of the effort contributed by the partners and the results that we achieved.

Software

When we started BonFIRE three and a half years ago, we had nothing tangible, only promising people and some ideas. By Month 2 we had the first set of requirements; by Month 4 the first Architecture, including a definition of the BonFIRE offering and the BonFIRE Principles; and by Month 12, the first facility for our partner-experimenters to use. By that time we were a team.
