The ARCHER2 service, operated by EPCC, serves as the UK’s National High Performance Computing system and facilitates world-class science for UK researchers. It supports a wide range of sciences including physics, chemistry, engineering and the environmental sciences.

The ARCHER2 Celebration of Science event last week was an opportunity for a wide range of over 80 people involved in the ARCHER2 community to get together, and to hear presentations by some of the Consortia Leaders, Principal Investigators, and other researchers benefitting from access to ARCHER2, and also from some of those involved in providing the ARCHER2 service.

It included a poster competition, which was won by Marina Strocchi (Imperial College London and King’s College London) for her entry "Linking Molecular to Whole-organ Function Using Multi-scale, Multi-physics Four-chamber Computational Models". The judges noted the visually engaging design and accessible language of Marina's poster, combined with clear statements about the benefits and impact of her research.
