 EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Pervasive Parallelism - Internal Conference and Industrial Engagement Event


This two-day event is part academic conference, part industrial engagement opportunity.


It will feature presentations from academic staff and senior PhD students on topics spanning the research spectrum of the School of Informatics. The first cohort of CDT in Pervasive Parallelism students will give short talks on their research.


In addition to the presentations, the event will include a networking reception with academic posters and industry partner booths, as well as the second Industrial Advisory Board meeting.


The conference will provide many opportunities for students, staff and industry partners to network and learn about one another’s work. Attendees will include:

  • CDT in Pervasive Parallelism (PPar) students, supervisors and management committees
  • Industry partners of the CDT PPar
  • Students and supervisors of the CDTs in Data Science and Robotics & Autonomous Systems, also based at the School of Informatics
  • PhD, MSc and final-year undergraduate students from the Schools of Informatics, Physics, Engineering and Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh
  • School of Informatics research and teaching staff

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Pervasive Parallelism

 

Our Centre’s purpose is to educate the graduates who will address the the most disruptive challenge faced by the computing industry for 50 years: ‘pervasive parallelism’. Driven by performance and energy constraints, parallelism is now crucial to all layers of the computing infrastructure, from smartphones to globally distributed systems. But parallel systems create difficult new challenges for modelling, simulation, testing and verification, posing a set of interconnected problems of enormous signficance. We urgently need solutions in order to maintain the familiar pace of technological progress, and the benefits it brings to so much of modern life.

 

This EPSRC-sponsored programme, which combines a 1-year MSc by Research and a 3-year PhD, trains the next generation of experts who will undertake the fundamental research and design required to tackle these problems and find solutions. Our strong ties with industry increase the speed with which these advances will be exploited and developed, providing an opportunity for Pervasive Parallelism graduates to work at the core of the new computing era.

Organiser

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Pervasive Parallelism

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Pervasive Parallelism at the University of Edinburgh seeks to develop the parallel computing research leaders of the future. We offer a 4-year programme, combining a 1-year Master of Science by Research degree and a 3-year PhD. We are based at the University's School of Informatics, and benefit from a close partnership with the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC). We are funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the School of Informatics and a number of our industrial partners.
