Annual Computing and STFC Town Meeting – Friday 17 January 2020 – Registration now openNovember 28, 2019, from Georgina Bennett
The STFC Computing Advisory Panel has reinstated the Annual Computing and STFC Town Meeting, which I can announce will take place on Friday 17 January at Imperial College London, with a capacity for ~100. This is a community-driven event with attendance by STFC and registration is now open, please REGISTER HERE – https://indico.cern.ch/event/867670/. Further information regarding the agenda and logistics will also be uploaded in due course.
As CAP Chair, I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to two items of interest. Firstly, the recent appointment of James Hetherington as the inaugural UKRI Director of e-Infrastructure – https://www.ukri.org/news/new-ukri-director-for-e-infrastructure-appointed/ , and secondly, the publication of the two reports that constitute the UKRI ‘Infrastructure Roadmap’ – https://www.ukri.org/research/infrastructure/.
At such key junctures, and as we as a community develop to meet the scientific computing challenges of the 2020s and beyond, it is essential that such fora exist in order that we may build cross-community engagement with cross-community challenges, and of course, solutions! With this in mind, I look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible for what will be a diverse day of activity.
Prof David Colling, Imperial College London
