Computational hardware is changing rapidly. Two decades ago, all we needed to know was the speed of upcoming hardware, not its form or the state of its software frameworks. This is no longer true with new and novel highly parallel computing architectures being unveiled continuously. This forces important questions about re-coding and future proofing existing scientific software. Emerging Tech describes this continual change of hardware and algorithms, and EMiT – through international conferences, workshops and community fora – is here to help everybody make optimal use of these.

Unique aims and scope

The EMiT (EMerging Technology) conference series brings together experts from all areas of computing to examine how to best take advantage of the changing landscape of computer hardware and overcome research barriers for fields such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD), computational mechanics, life sciences, and financial modelling. Building on the successes of EMiT2016, EMiT2015 and EMiT2014, EMiT2017 will continue to provide a platform for the cutting edge in computing technologies as well as broaden its international reach.

EMiT has the following objectives

  • to identify latest trends in hardware development for novel computing;
  • to share how best to exploit Emerging Tech for application;
  • to focus on new techniques, their development and transfer to new areas.

With device-independent compilers and high-level languages, to low power and energy efficient computing being applied to ever changing hardware and numerical algorithms for industrial and academic use, EMiT brings all they key organisations and developers together.


Building on the successes of the last few years, EMiT is now forming

  • Advisory Panel: Jack Dongarra confirmed, awaiting reply from others
  • Organising Committee: Michael Bane (Chair), David Topping, Benedict Rogers, Stephen Longshaw, Irfan Alibay
  • Local Organising Committee: the venue for EMiT2017 will be announced shortly
