CIUK 2021 included an exhibition of the latest hardware and software releases plus a full, two day programme of presentations and a series of parallel breakout sessions. There was a student poster competition plus the second instalment of the CIUK Student Cluster Challenge. We also presented our annual Jacky Pallas Memorial Award.

CIUK 2021 Keynote Presentation
This year's CIUK Keynote Presentation was given by Professor Simon McIntosh-Smith (University of Bristol) who presented on “Heterogeneous Computing: past, present and future”
Heterogeneous computing has been a part of HPC almost since the field began, but the current wave, which began 15 years ago, is the most significant revolution in the field since the commodity cluster. In this talk we will explore where this trend has come from, discuss its implications, and consider how our community needs to act in order to be ready for the era of heterogeneous Exascale supercomputers. We will also discuss related initiatives in the UK, such as ExCALIBUR and the UK’s Exascale programme.
