SUPERCOMPUTERS: WHAT ARE THEY AND WHAT CAN THEY DO FOR RESEARCH?

A joint seminar with the Oxford e-Research Centre

Tuesday 28 February 2017

Haldane Room, Wolfson College

5-7 pm

Modern advances in the computing power of desktops and clusters may leave academics wondering whether supercomputers still serve a purpose for research. This seminar will bring together local experts in high-performance computing (HPC) from the Oxford e-Research Centre (http://www.oerc.ox.ac.uk/), Oxford University's Advanced Research Computing service (http://www.arc.ox.ac.uk/), and the Diamond Light Source facility at Harwell (http://www.diamond.ac.uk/) for an overview of what these machines are and what they can do for research across the whole range of academic disciplines.

The seminar will consist of a series of short presentations and discussion, followed by drinks and ending at 7 pm.

All welcome.

Speakers
