Computing Insight UK 2017
Following the success of last year’s event we will be returning to Manchester Central Convention Complex 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.
The event runs between the 12th and 13th of December and tickets are priced at £99. Calls for posters are open until the end of November, so please visit the website at www.stfc.ac.uk/CIUK for more details on how to register, the full programme and how to submit a poster.
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”.
The keynote speaker at the end of day one will be Professor Steven Furber. 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. 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.
The ticket price also includes access to a number of parallel workshops, including a daylong session on the 13th of December run by the international conference series “EMiT: Emerging Technology”. This will look at quantum computing and machine learning/AI and will even involve a hands-on session with cloud based quantum computing!
