Cloud and High Performance Computing in Biomedicine: UCL, London

Cloud and High Performance Computing in Biomedicine: UCL, London

You are invited to participate in an upcoming one-day CompBioMed meeting on Cloud & HPC in Biomedicine on Thursday 27th April 2017.

The event is free to attend and you can register here.

The day will involve presentations from Core and Associate Partners, punctuated with discussions over tea and coffee, with lunch provided.

This meeting is intended to provide a forum for users from academia, industry and healthcare sectors to meet with open source software developers alongside independent software and hardware vendors, in order to determine what the best selection of capabilities is to meet their own needs. It will thereby help CompBioMed to define directions in which we would like to advance our users’ interests.

CompBioMed is an EU-commission Horizon 2020 user-driven Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Computational Biomedicine. 

The main objective of the CoE is to nurture and promote the uptake and exploitation of high performance computing (HPC) within the biomedical community. We are keen to form partnerships throughout the world that will strengthen the project’s collaborative output.  Christopher Infold Lecture Theatre
