Centre of Innovation: Accelerating research for Industry Event

Publication date: Oct 22, 2013 12:18:54 PM

Start: Nov 4, 2013 10:00:00 AM

In 2012 the Centre for Innovation established two leading edge high performance computing platforms to accelerate research.


Formed by the Universities of Oxford, Bristol, Southampton and UCL the consortium is established to engage with Industry across a broad research spectrum.

As part of this initiative the Emerald cluster was deployed, a 372 NVidia M2090 based system, the UK number 1 GPU based system built in collaboration with HP, Gnodal, Panasas, and hosted by the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratories.

The purpose of this one day forum at University College London is to introduce industry to the potential of using GPU based computing technology within their research.

Supported by NVidia, the day will provide exemplars of research already using GPU technology through to an introduction on how to get started. Experts from the Centre for Innovation and NVidia will be on-hand to discuss requirements and provide advice on how to start using GPUs and access the Emerald service.

Registration for Centre of Innovation: Accelerating research for Industry Event 4th November 2013
