Many-core and Reconfigurable Supercomputing Network
The Many-core and Reconfigurable Supercomputing Network (MRSN) was an EPSRC-funded initiative by Imperial College, University of Manchester, University of Oxford and Queen's University Belfast to promote the use of FPGAs, many-core GPUs and other accelerators for scientific computation in a range of application areas such as healthcare, digital media and transportation, all of which are of importance within EPSRC's Digital Economy programme.
The goals were to help each other with these exciting new technologies, build bridges between application scientists and computing experts, maintain/develop links with international experts, and prepare joint proposals for future research funding.
People can still join the MRSN mailing list and/or look at the mail archives here.
