EVENT: The power and future of supercomputing in Wales

A showcase and celebration of the impact of our high performance computing and research software engineering.

From modeling the spread of COVID-19 to mapping and monitoring land cover across Wales using satellite imagery, Supercomputing Wales is at the heart of advanced research and innovation in Wales since 2016. Indeed, with large-scale data now abundant and needing to be processed, analyzed and understood, HPC and software engineering play a vital role in the research and innovation landscape in Wales. Wales, UK and beyond.

Guest speakers are Welsh Economy Minister Vaughan Gething MS and Professor Mark Wilkinson, Director of the DiRAC HPC Facility. Participants should include government departments, funder researchers, and researchers whose work benefits HPC and research software engineering. Details of the full program will be provided to participants in June.

The day is free. We encourage you to join us in Cardiff, but the event will be streamed live online to allow for wider participation.

Supercomputing Wales is a consortium of universities – Cardiff, Swansea, Bangor and Aberystwyth – working together to deliver high performance computing and research software engineering services to enable excellence in science and innovation in Wales. It is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.
