We are delighted to announce the return of the much-loved HPC-Europa Transnational Access visitor programme.
HPC-Europa and its predecessor TRACS together supported more than 850 research visits to EPCC between 1993 and 2012. Over the last few years HPC-Europa has been much missed, judging by the number of former visitors and their colleagues and local host research groups who have contacted us to ask if there will be a new programme.

Wee Archie is our mini-supercomputer made from Raspberry Pis, used for public outreach to teach members of the public the concepts of supercomputing. It has been very successful, and as such a second one has been built to keep up with demand!

The Student Cluster Competition is held three times a year, at Supercomputing, ISC High Performance and the Asia Student Supercomputing Challenge. EPCC has taken part in the past with great success and we're returning to the competition at ISC17 with a strong team of students from our MSc in High Performance Computing, and MSc in High Performance Computing with Data Science.

When we parallelise and optimise computational simulation codes we always have choices to make. Choices about the type of parallel model to use (distributed memory, shared memory, PGAS, single sided, etc), whether the algorithm used needs to be changed, what parallel functionality to use (loop parallelisation, blocking or non-blocking communications, collective or point-to-point messages, etc).
