Venue: Boardroom, Gateway Building, University of St Andrews, North Haugh, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 9ST

This is the third of a series of Scottish Parallel Computational Mathematics Meetings to explore and develop synergies between major Scottish research activities in parallel computational mathematics, e.g. NAIS, HPC-GAP, SCIEnce, Computational Statistics and Cognitive Neuroscience, Vector Processing Languages.


Strathclyde NA Seminar

Venue: University of Strathclyde

John Blair-Smith (University of Edinburgh) will give a talk at the Strathclyde NA Seminar Series.

Title: History repeats itself in numeric and High Performance Computing



nVIDIA GPU Workshop

Venue: Edinburgh University, Darwin Building, Lecture Theatre G10, Kings Buildings, Mayfield Road, Edinburgh EH9 3JZ

General-Purpose Graphics Processing Units are changing the landscape of high performance computing, with the current number one theoretical peak performance supercomputer Nebulae based GPUs. On October 26th you will have the opportunity to hear about the abilities of GPUs for high performance computing, directly from two of the nVIDIA researchers: Chris Butler and Timothy Lanfear. This workshop will include both an introduction to the architecture and capabilities of the new Tesla series GPUs, as well as exemplar applications.


Glass Simulation Workshop

Venue: University of Edinburgh, CSEC Seminar Room (room 3808), James Clerk Maxwell Building, Kings Buildings, Mayfield Road, Edinburgh EH9 3JZ

This short meeting will feature a collection of introductory talks addressing computational techniques for studying relaxation processes and molecular structure of glasses. PhD students are especially encouraged to attend.

20.09.2010 to 22.09.2010

MOPNET Matrix OPerator and Pencil Network Workshop

Venue: Edinburgh Conference Centre at Heriot-Watt University.

This is a workshop on Matrix and Operator Pencils, run by the EPSRC-funded MOPNET Network. The final day of the meeting is devoted to HPC issues and funded by NAIS.

30.06.2010 to 03.07.2010

Multiscale Molecular Modelling

Venue: University of Edinburgh

This meeting will address formulation issues, numerical methods, and the implementation of algorithms for probing molecular models, especially multiscale simulation methods. We will bring together mathematicians and computer scientists with physical scientists, to accelerate the transfer of theoretical methodology mathematical ideas into application.


NAIS Annual Meeting

This is the annual meeting of the Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software Centre. The meeting will feature talks by Laxmikant Kale (Illinois) and Andreas Frommer (Wuppertal) as well as presentations by NAIS Staff. This is an open event for UK researchers funded by the NAIS Centre.  The theme of the 2010 meeting is "new algorithms for the evolving HPC platform". The meeting this year is as broad as NAIS itself and includes numerical methods, paradigms for parallel computing algorithm development, and ideas for languages and HPC compilers

23.06.2010 to 24.06.2010

NAIS HPC Workshop

The workshop is intended to be a mix of training and project- facilitation. It will include elements of pertinent training for NAIS members, plus consider key themes that will help us to explore the vision of NAIS and plan future research areas for the consortium. The themes are: * Extreme-scale computing. * Novel approaches to scientific computing. The workshop is targeted at NAIS members and NAIS-Network affiliates.

03.05.2010 to 05.05.2010

HiPEAC Innovation Week

Venue: Edinburgh

At the heart of the schedule there will be a poster session by researchers describing current work and presentation booths for SMEs allowing a dynamic interaction. The event includes a number of presentations by SMEs describing what they do, what they want from researchers and what they want the EU to do to help them. The event will also include several cluster meetings discussing research directions relevant to NAIS, such as parallel programming and multi-core platforms. In addition, one of our keynote speakers is Mario Nemirovsky from the Barcelona Supercomputer Center. Finally, there will also be a presentation by the EU Project Officer Panagiotis Tsarchopoulos, outlining substantial funding opportunities in 2011. If you are interested in interacting with the best computer systems researchers in Europe, meeting new industrial partners and getting funded by the EU, then this event will be of interest to you.


Strathclyde NA Seminar

NAIS Lecturer, Magnus Svard (University of Edinburgh) will speak at the Stathclyde NA seminar series.

Title: Finite difference methods for the Navier-Stokes equations
