Lee Margetts, Neil Bourne (University of Manchester), David Emerson (STFC), Andrew Richards (University of Oxford), Gerard Gorman (Imperial College) and Andrew Jones (NAG Ltd) have arranged a UK HPC consortium forming meeting at the University of Oxford on Monday 9 June.
In brief, the aims of the UK HPC Consortium for Computational Structural Mechanics are (1) to secure a community managed allocation of cpu time on ARCHER, (2) improve academic software co-development, sharing and/or interoperability (for software developed in the UK and overseas), (3) receive professional software engineering support from EPSRC via CCP12 and (4) establish a recognised community voice regarding the provision of UK regional and national facilities.
EPSRC have agreed to fund the attendance of two distinguished researchers from US laboratories (Jim Belak from LLNL and Curt Bronkhorst from LANL) to give the meeting an international perspective.
The meeting is open to both UK industry and UK academics, end-users and software developers. If you would like to attend the meeting, please could you complete the short application form at the link below by Friday 22nd May.
