EMiT 2017 will be held at UPV Universitat Politècnica de València in Spain between the 10th and 12th of July 2017.

A call for 1 page abstracts is now open, please click here to submit via our external management system, deadline for submissions is Friday the 14th April 2017, see the Authors section for further details.

The EMiT 2017 programme is currently being compiled. As with previous events this will include a mixture of invited keynote talks and reviewed submissions. So far we can confirm keynote presentations from:

New speakers will be added soon so please keep checking back to see who is going to be there!

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 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.

EMiT 2016 (Barcelona Supercomputing Centre)

EMiT 2016 was held at Barcelona Supercomputing Centre and hosted by the Mont-Blanc project. More details can be found in the “history” section of the website but here are a few video interviews taken during the 2 days as a sneak peak of what to expect at EMiT 2017!
