CRAY - The Supercomputer Company, Friday 8th May 2009, BST 3pm Room 1.10, Kilburn Building The University of Manchester 

Andy Mason - CRAY, will be presenting current installation examples, the HECToR UK national supercomputer upgrade route to phase 2 (up to 400TFlops) and phase 3 (1PetaFlop?); as well as a roadmap of the new family of products. The RCUK roadmap includes speculative routes beyond 2013 onwards to 2020: ideas include not just a new general purpose supercomputer but also the opportunity to deploy specialist machines (graphics cards???).

If you wish to have a meeting with Andy Mason; from buying your own machine to speeding up code - please email and we will arrange a slot (martin.turner at manchester.ac.uk).
