Dr Lee Margetts recently represented N8 HPC on a visit of HPC experts to the US to identify areas for collaboration. A report of their findings is now available.
In February 2013, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office Science and Innovation team, together with Research Councils UK (RCUK), organized a delegation of High Performance Computing (HPC) experts from the UK to visit the USA to (1) identify areas and mechanisms for collaboration between the UK and USA; and (2) identify lessons the UK could learn from the USA HPC community – especially with regard to engagement with industry and the software challenge.
Dr Lee Margetts was invited to be part of the delegation, representing the University of Manchester and the N8 HPC. A report is now available that presents the findings of that delegation, including recommendations for action, along with a summary of the visits and meetings occurring during the week.
