Following the success of last year’s event we will be returning to Manchester Central on the 12-13 December and will again be including two full days of presentations, talks and panel sessions running alongside an exhibition of the latest technologies from the leading hardware and software developers and resellers, an exhibitor forum and a series of breakout sessions.

This year the theme for the conference will be “Joining Up the UK e-Infrastructure” and the main programme will include presentations covering sub-themes such as “Experiences of Joining up e-Infrastructure” and “Experiences of Cloud Computing Within the UK and Europe”.

Our keynote speaker is Steve Furber (Manchester University). Best known for his work in designing the award-winning BBC Microcomputer and the ARM 32-bit RISC microprocessor in the 1980s, Steve Furber is now taking on the challenge of creating processing power that mimics the processes in the human brain. He has been exploring how computing technology can achieve the very high levels of connectivity observed in the complex biological neural networks in our brains. Join us at CIUK 2017 to hear our engaging, award-winning speaker, who is currently working to build a massively-parallel chip multiprocessor for modelling large systems of spiking neurons in real time.

Breakout sessions include the next edition of the EMiT: Emerging Technology Conference series as well as the Spectrum Scale User Group and a session on Cyber Security in HPC.

Register now for just £99! This fee includes entrance to the CIUK 2017 exhibition and access to the entire conference programme of presentations, exhibitor forum talks and breakout sessions. And did we mention lunch is on us too?
