SPF ExCALIBUR Programme-wide Workshop

The Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) Exascale Computing ALgorithms & Infrastructures Benefiting UResearch (ExCALIBUR) Programme will be hosting the second Programme-wide Workshop, to be held at the Engineers House, Bristol on Wednesday 11 October and Thursday 12 October 2023.

The SPF ExCALIBUR Programme started in October 2019 and will run through until March 2025. The workshop will provide an ideal opportunity for all the programme partners to share scientific progress, strengthen interdisciplinary working and cultivate networks.

The Met Office hosted the first one last year. ExCALIBUR covers a wide range of activities across the whole spectrum of UK simulation codes from weather and climate modelling, through astrophysics modelling and fusion modelling to molecular modelling together with many associated cross-cutting themes.

All ExCALIBUR funded projects and members of ExCALIBUR governance groups are invited to attend this two-day workshop in Bristol.
