N8 HPC Network Event- HPC for Quantum Materials Simulation. Friday 9th January 2015 at The Bar Convent, York

Are you active in, or interested in, the computational modelling / simulation of materials? Are you aware of what can (and cannot) be currently achieved using quantum mechanics based techniques? With the ever growing rise in available computer power, and the development of general purpose modelling codes, the answers might be different to what you think! In this 1-day meeting you will meet other researchers working with quantum materials simulation from across the N8 Universities to discuss your current research and ideas for the future. This event will be relevant for beginners and experts alike.

For full information about the event and to register please see the HPC For Quantum Materials Simulation Network Event page.

Closing date for registration: Monday 22 December

DL_SOFTWARE Workshop, 8-10 December 2014 @ STFC Daresbury Laboratory, Warrington, UK

A CCP5 training workshop on the software packages developed by the Computational Chemistry Group at STFC Daresbury Laboratory will be held between 8th and 10th December 2014 at Daresbury Laboratory.

This is an opportunity for current and potential users of DL_POLY, DL_FIELD, DL_CG, DL_MESO, DL_MONTE, DL_AKMC to learn how to use these programs and what methodologies and algorithms they include.  The workshop also offers demonstrations and hands-on sessions giving users the opportunity to compile, run and experiment with the programs as well as interact with their developers.  This three-day workshop also includes a poster session for attendees to showcase their research projects efforts as well as modelling and experimental results.

The workshop will only have 40 places available in total.

Further information about the course program and registration can be found here



This one-day event is designed to embrace all those using and/or researching technology and multimedia applications, as well as those using digital approaches to interpret and disseminate past and present research projects.

Using digital and advanced computing technology as an umbrella the conference will provide opportunities for researchers at Durham, including postgraduate students, to experience open discussion about the techniques and methods; project design and dissemination around digital debates, as well as the computational software and hardware that holds a professional and developmental appeal with scholars alongside key research council-led themes.

This #DHDurham event will have an emphasis on open discussions and debate, and aims to address broader agendas of researching and utilising digital humanities across disciplines and research routes. As well as paper presentations from colleagues across the University (covering some current research) external speakers will stimulate our discussion before lunch and the afternoon workshop.

The event will be held at Collingwood College on 15th October 2014 and registration closes on the 8th of October.  An agenda is available – #DHDurham ­ Agenda


BIN@Sheffield2014 is the 5th annual event of an informal international network The University of Sheffield is developing with a number of universities, their science parks and incubators and their industry networks.

The BIN@ events aim to bring applied research and industry expertise together to explore and develop new partnership and collaboration opportunities.

Day 1 will see a number of presentations and a panel debate on the challenge “can universities be engines of innovation & growth”, days 2 & 3 are focused on Action Tanks (short themed workshops) bringing expertise, talent and opportunity together to facilitate discussion and the sharing of ideas.

A number of the Action Tank themes have already been matched to future opportunities such as Horizon 2020 calls or themes and so the event will be a great networking and partnering opportunity for colleagues and industry contacts.

The event will take place on the 10th, 11th and 12th of November at The Showroom & Workstation, Paternoster Row, Sheffield. Registration is now open.

MATLAB Seminar in Sheffield on Wednesday, 16th of July

MATLAB is a highly popular scientific computing tool used at Sheffield University.

Vast numerical capabilities provided in MATLAB combined with built in high quality graphical visualization and presentation features makes it an ideal platform to carry out research computing work with.

Once again we are pleased to announce that Mathworks Inc. will be presenting a Nationally publicized seminar at the University of Sheffield.

The wide range of subjects covered will include graphical visualization, parallel and GPU computing, Simulink and Raspberry Pie support.
