The conference covers high-performance computing on accelerators such as GPUs, FPGAs and the Xeon Phi, as well as embedded and mobile parallel systems. Application areas include computational science and engineering, finance, computer vision and beyond. The goal of the event is to strengthen the UK's expertise in many-core computing, in both industry and academia.
