- Two key note presentations confirmed for EMiT 2019: Prof. Veljko Milutinovic from The University of Belgrade will be discussing “DataFlow SuperComputing for Big Data Analytics”. Joining him will be Peter Hopton, the founder of ICEOTOPE liquid cooling technologies.
- Abstract submission details are now available, the deadline for submission to be considered for presentation at EMiT 2019 is January the 31st 2019.
- Two exciting workshop streams will be available on the the first day:
- A Deep Learning workshop delivered by an accredited NVIDIA tutor combined with a tutorial on developing similar algorithms using a neuromorphic “spiking neural net” architecture called SpiNNaker via a software tool set called SPANNER.
- A Quantum Computing workshop delivered by IBM Research, including practical hands-on programming experience using real quantum hardware.
- Registration is now available via the local EMiT2019 web pages
The next EMiT (Emerging Tech) conference will be EMiT2019 at The University of Huddersfield on 9-11 April 2019 it will include a day long training session on exciting emerging topics and then a packed 2 day programme of invited and submitted talks. We are delighted to announce that proceedings will be opened by Professor Liz Towns-Andrews, Director of Research and Enterprise at the University of Huddersfield and keynote talks will be given by Professor Veljko Milutinovic from the University of Belgrade on his work with FPGA platforms and low-energy computing, and by Peter Hopkin on challenges facing exascale computing.
The University of Huddersfield has a vibrant history in supporting new technologies and their uptake in industry, located in the historic West Yorkshire area of England in the United Kingdom, EMiT2019 will be held in one of its new buildings and hosted by the High Performance Computing Research Group from the School of Computing and Engineering. The 2019 event promises to be even bigger than the last main EMiT event at Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, we are excited to provide a platform for the current state of the art in computing and the organising committee looks forward to meeting you there!
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.
