e-Infrastructure and the Cloud: Methods, Methodologies and Mechanisms

The Spectral/hp Element method research group in the Department of Aeronautics and the London e-Science Centre in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London invite you to a day-long workshop to discuss e-Infrastructure: end-user support for computational activities.

The workshop is designed to mark the end of the EPSRC HPC Software Development project, libhpc, and to set the scene for the recently awarded Part II project, libhpc II.

This workshop will address the general issue of e-Infrastructure support for end-users using computational resources. It will present a range of notations and methodologies that have been developed to provide such support and will also raise the issue of whether it is possible to develop one general framework, capable of spanning many or all application domains and machine types, or whether different notations and frameworks are needed for different application types. Attention will also be paid to the mechanisms that are needed to support such an infrastructure at a national or institutional level and we will discuss how end-users, method developers and infrastructure operators could work together to provide and maintain such an infrastructure.

The workshop will take place on the Imperial College South Kensington Campus in the William Penney Laboratory, Room 212. The William Penny Laboratory is building 15 on the campus map.

London e-Science Centre

The London e-Science Centre in the Department of Computing, Imperial College London undertakes collaborative research to support scientific communities across Imperial College and beyond. The Centre is involved in a wide range of e-Science-related projects covering an array of fields from development of middleware to simplify access to large-scale computing platforms such as clusters and clouds, through to developing tools and services to aid the management and processing of distributed data.

The Centre focuses on working with end-user domain sceientists to understand their technical challenges and to develop novel solutions to these problems.
