Welcome to the HPC Special Interest Group

The HPC Special Interest Group aims to promote the use of High Performance Computing (HPC) in academia and industry, by members working together and promoting best practice in HPC provision, management and support. The group organises a range of meetings, events and workshops that are relevant to all current or potential providers of University HPC services.

The term of the current HPC-SIG Executive Committee has expired so the HPC-SIG will be electing a new executive at its February 2018 meeting. See here for details, including a description of the posts and the deadline for nominations (5pm on Thursday 1st February 2018).

Over the last ten years, computational science has emerged as a major driver for innovation across the research spectrum. In fields as diverse as pharmaceuticals and nanotechnology, High Performance Computing (HPC) has dramatically accelerated the delivery of scientific insights; simulation and modelling supplanting traditional experimental-based methods through their cost efficiency.
