With more topics to to follow.

Keynote speakers:

  • Dr Filippo Mantovani (Mont-Blanc Project)

There are also an additional 16 presentations covering a wide variety of topics.

Over the two days, there will be international speakers and major vendors including Intel and HP. It's an excellent networking opportunity and a chance for researchers to engage and perhaps get sponsorship deals or detailed support. There is also free training on the following two days.

The two-day event includes food and a conference dinner, and costs just £150, or £99 for students (including Postgraduates).
