One of the projects I'm currently leading at EPCC is ExTASY, which is building an 'Extensible Toolkit for Advanced Sampling and analYsis'.  I've blogged in the past about the goals of the project, and the painful process leading up to our first public release. As the project is now well into its final year, we are turning our attention to community outreach - showing off what we have built to the biomolecular simulation community and getting their feedback.

EPCC Stand layoutEPCC at SC15

Preparations for EPCC's booth at SC15 are currently in full swing. This year we have revamped our stand, ordering a custom-built display (see pics below). 

In previous years we have used a combination of smaller displays to populate the space we have at the conference. However, it's often hard to get a coherent and consistent look for the booth when using an adhoc approach like this, hence this years' decision to create a display that is tailored to the space we have on the exhibition floor at Supercomputing.

Since 2013, EPCC has hosted PRACE Summer of HPC (SoHPC) students for eight weeks from early July. I was involved with SoHPC for the first time this year as mentor of two Masters students, Jana Boltersdorf from FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and Ondřej Vysocký from Brno University of Technology (Czech Republic).

During August and September we ran a series of seminar events across Scotland, in collaboration with three major actors in the Scottish life science sector: BioCity, BioQuarter and BioDundee. 

If you weren’t lucky enough to come to one of our seminars (and the complementary lunch) on the application of HPC and Big Data in life sciences then you might want to catch up by reading the associated case study.
