EMiT is returning to the UK in December 2017 with a day long workshop on the 13th of December 2017. This will be hosted by the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) annual technology conference Computing Insight UK at the Manchester Central conference centre in Manchester, UK. The event will comprise a number of technical discussions, both invited and submitted as well as a hands-on session giving access to truly cutting edge emerging computing technology!

Further details of EMiT@CIUK 2017 will be available soon via this website, as well as details of how to submit a talk proposal and register for the event.

This should prove to be an exciting new format for EMiT but rest-assured the main EMiT event will still return!


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, 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.

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!
