11-13 July 2018


Topics at the intersection of

  • Complex and turbulent flows
  • Computational biology
  • Quantum chromodynamics
  • HPC architectures and technologies
  • Modelling and algorithms

Key speakers include

  • Mark Ashdown (University of Cambridge)
  • Costas Bekas (IBM Research, Zürich)
  • Alison Kennedy (STFC Hartree Centre Director)

  • Sauro Succi (Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo "Mauro Picone", CNR)

HPC-LEAP is a highly interdisciplinary Horizon 2020 programme for European Joint Doctorates applying high performance computing research to problems in the life sciences, engineering, and physics.  PhD students have studied mathematical and computational concepts underpinning current and future numerical simulations in turbulent flows, computational biology, and lattice quantum chromodynamics. The projects have been designed to enhance collaborations and interactions across these disciplines, integrating non-academic partners, and to develop methodologies that efficiently use large-scale numerical simulations on future high performance computer systems.

Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge

This conference will mark the conclusion of the grant period. Experts in the thematic areas will be invited to review recent developments and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration, and early-stage researchers will report on the results of their work.
