Kicking off December at CIUK in Manchester


By Bright Staff | December 04, 2019 |



We are excited to be attending Computing Insight UK 2019 (CIUK) this week; arguably the most significant HPC event that takes place in the UK each year.

Once again, CIUK will be hosted at Manchester Central, this year on the 5th and 6th December. The conference comprises two full days of presentations that run alongside an exhibition featuring the latest technologies from leading hardware and software developers and resellers.

This year the theme for the conference is Computing the Future, with the event divided into two sub-themes. The first day will focus on Computing Today with sessions on Cloud Computing Today, Software Development Today, and Data Science - Convergence of AI and HPC. The second day will look at Computing Tomorrow and Into the Future, with sessions on Hardware Towards Exascale, Software Development Towards Exascale, and Quantum Computing.

Bright is proud to be an exhibitor at CIUK, and we look forward to networking with our customers and partners at the event. Throughout the 2-day conference, attendees are invited to the Bright booth to learn more about our recent announcements:
