HPC summer school 2015
The HPC summer school brings together the HPC support team, scientific community and private sector representatives for one week of tutorials, lectures and exchange of ideas.
On the program are businesses such as CUDA, Alinea DDT, Intel tools, Intel compiler vectorization, OpenMP, D-Wave, emerging technologies, presentations from local HPC users, interest groups and much more. The week concludes with an afternoon of scientific lectures, a poster session and visit from the provost, followed by food and drinks sponsored by vendors.

Let us know that you are coming and if you'd like to present a poster. You can register for individual events separately.
Name Imperial's supercomputer
The Imperial community is invited to take part in a competition to name one of the College's supercomputers.
Enter the CX2 naming competition
The Provost James Stirling CBE FRS will announce results of the naming competition on Friday, October 2nd.
Imperial College HPC prize
The Imperial College High Performance Computing prize will be awarded to early career researchers (PhD student, PDRA or equivalent level) for work that is either:
best advance in the field of high performance computing, or,
most effectively exploits high performance computing to achieve an advancement in another field of science or engineering.
Candidates are invited to submit a peer reviewed article published within the last two years (i.e. published after 1 September 2013), along with a short description of the significance of the work (maximum of 200 words). In the case of a multi-authored paper, the leading authors should be early career researchers. Submissions should be sent by email to email@example.com with the subject heading Imperial College HPC prize entry before 16:00 on the 25th of September 2015.
The winning entry will receive a cash prize of £1,000 and will be awarded by the Provost, Professor James Stirling CBE FRS on the 2nd of October 2015.
We invite everyone to participate in the poster session on Friday October 2nd at 16:30. Posters can be registered during the event registration.
We will have a video display and invite submissions of animations and simulation videos. You can write to us to have your videos screened during the event.
