EPCC at ISC 2019: booth B-1251

20 May 2019

EPCC's booth is at B-1251.

Come and meet us at ISC High Performance 2019, where we will be very pleased to talk about EPCC’s work. You can also test yourself against our new coastal-defences demonstration or design an aircraft wing – both activities will be running on Wee Archie, EPCC’s Raspberry Pi-based supercomputer.

TeamEPCC, drawn from current students of our MSc programmes, will again be taking part in the Student Cluster Competition. You’ll find them in Booth A-1452 along with EPCC’s Xu Guo, the Team Coach. They are keen to explain their work to conference visitors so please say hello!
