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.

This summer we hosted a PRACE Summer of HPC student, Anna, who has been working with us on an HPC supercomputer cluster challenge game which she previously blogged about here. The idea of this has been to gamify the design of a supercomputer, balancing the desire for advanced components (CPU, memory and accelerators) against budget and power efficiency.

And now for something completely different...

Forth 1 Fringe@Work

As you may know, the Edinburgh Festival is currently in full swing - in fact it's hard to make it across the city centre without stumbling across street artists or perfomers offering tickets for their shows. For the most part, life on the King's Buildings Campus goes on regardless... until our Business Development & Marketing Manager Maureen announced that we'd won the Fringe@Work competition, and Forth 1 Radio and the Gilded Balloon would be bringing a taste of the Festival Fringe direct to JCMB Lecture Theatre A.
