The next EMiT (Emerging Tech) conference will be EMiT2019 at Huddersfield University on 9-11 April 2019. Please email us at info@emit.tech if you are interested in presenting, have recommended key note speakers, would like to run a training workshop (or have suggestions) or would like to sponsor the event. We shall shortly (April2018) provide an update on how to submit your papers for peer review.

The EMiT committee would like to wish all of past, present and future EMiT supporters a Happy New Year, we are looking forward to an exciting shift towards tangible use of emerging technology such as quantum, FPGA as factors such as low energy computing take hold. We are also excited to see how newly emerged technologies such as highly parallel architectures like GPUs and the Xeon Phi can take scientific computing to the next level as they become mainstream.

In the meantime, you can review the most recent EMiT activity: the highly successful EMiT@CIUK 2017

EMiT Introduction

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 EMiT@CIUK 2017, EMiT2016, EMiT2015 and EMiT2014, the next EMiT 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.
