Supercomputing Wales hosts inaugural conference

Supercomputing Wales held “A New Decade of Supercomputing” at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff from 23rd – 24th January 2020.

The conference, which welcomed almost 90 delegates and a number of high-profile speakers, considered how High Performance Computing will develop over the next decade and the integral role of supercomputers in our future.

Roger Whitaker, Academic Director for Supercomputing Wales, said: “We were delighted to welcome such a diverse range of delegates and speakers to the conference. High Performance Computing will play a vital role in both academic and industrial research over the course of the next decade, and Supercomputing Wales is in ideal position to fulfil that demand.”

Biagio Lucini of Swansea University, said: “It is very exciting to see how far Supercomputing has come in Wales in supporting a range of important academic research topics, enabling our Universities to excel on a global scale. In particular, we have a large community of dedicated Research Software Engineers that have provided a step-change in the utilisation of HPC systems.”
