Welcome

The High Performance Computing Research Group (HPC) aims to promote the links between high performance computer users, developers and researchers across the University, throughout the UK and internationally. It brings together academic and support staff with specialisms across a number of areas in the University, including computing, engineering, chemical and biological sciences.  By building on their expertise and resources, the Group aims to take the technical burden off researchers, allowing them to carry on with their own research without having to worry about “computing power”.

With an overall aim to encourage and develop High Performance Computing expertise within the departments across the University, the Group cultivates mutually supportive environments for research active staff involved in HPC by encouraging collaboration and increasing the impact of HPC both within the University and further afield.

Members of the Group work to facilitate exchange of ideas and to disseminate cutting edge HPC knowledge via research seminars and conferences.  They also provide an external reference point for communications with the wider community on HPC matters.

In line with the University’s goal of becoming a leading research institution, the Group aims to be at the cutting edge of new technology and to be a pioneer in emerging trends like Cloud computing.

The group aims are:

  • To encourage and develop HPC expertise within the departments across the University.
  • To increase the impact of HPC by fostering mutually supportive environments for research active staff involved in HPC and by encouraging collaboration, both within the University and further afield.
  • To facilitate exchange of ideas and to disseminate cutting edge HPC knowledge via research seminars and conferences.
  • To provide an external reference point for communications with the wider community on HPC matters.
