Last week we held the first in a series of annual meetings for the CP2K user community at the University of London Garden Halls.
I blogged about it in the run-up to the meeting, but as with any first until you're there you don't know quite what to expect. I was very pleased to see over 50 attendees on the day, ranging from new PhD students to professors, and expert CP2K users to complete novices.

In a previous post I introduced the European Exascale Software Initiative (EESI) Co-design deliverable in which EPCC is a joint task leader. We are looking to understand exactly what different people mean by the co-design term, what can be done to encourage and promote co-design and - specifically for exascale - how institutions might apply it to successfully deliver the HPC services of tomorrow.

Today is the last day of the exhibition at SC13 so whilst I'm manning the booth (#3932) I thought I'd talk about some of the sessions I've been to and people I've met since my last post.

If you have read any of my previous blogs, you will know that I have an interest in the lack of women working in the field of HPC and Physics. Last week I was lucky to be able to attend the third international Gender Summit in Washington DC, which aims to address, discuss and share ideas on how to improve the participation of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

It is widely accepted that to meet the deadline of an exascale system by 2020, a variety of complex problems must be solved.

Registration is now open for PGAS 2013.
EPCC is hosting the 7th International Conference on PGAS Programming Models in Edinburgh from 3-4th October and we have now finalised an exciting programme. The PGAS conference is the premier forum to present and discuss ideas and research developments in the area of PGAS models, languages, compilers, runtimes, applications and tools, PGAS architectures and hardware features. It is being held outside the United States for the first time.

Recently I have been taking the 'EPCC Roadshow' around local university departments, usually with a colleague or two, giving an overview of EPCC: who we are, what we do and how we can be of assistance. It is surprising how little communication takes place within a large institution and how little knowledge there is about what is available at one’s very own doorstep.
