Computing Insight UK is back for 2017!

Following the success of last year’s event we will be returning to Manchester Central and will again be including two full days of presentations, talks and panel sessions running alongside an exhibition of the latest technologies from the leading hardware and software developers and resellers, an exhibitor forum and a series of breakout sessions.

This year the theme for the conference will be “Joining Up the UK e-Infrastructure” and the main programme will include presentations covering sub-themes such as “Experiences of Joining up e-Infrastructure” and “Experiences of Cloud Computing Within the UK and Europe”.

This year, Computing Insight UK (CIUK) will take place on the 12-13 December 2017 at Manchester Central Convention Complex. The main theme of the event will concentrate on joining e-Infrastructure within the UK. As with previous years, CIUK aims to provide a programme of engaging and thought-provoking speakers highlighting the various ways computing boosts research, business and society around us.

We are currently accepting applications to present in the main programme. Each slot will be 30 minutes long and will provide the opportunity for you to share the challenges and successes of real life projects within four e-Infrastructure sub-themes; joining up infrastructures, network and hardware, clouds, and software and people.

Are you working at the leading edge of high performance computing hardware, networking, software or cloud? Would you like to share your successes, challenges and thoughts with a diverse audience of over 400 people, like-minded researchers, technical staff and commercial decision-makers?

Brief abstracts of no more than 300 words, summarising your talk and relevant information to support your application, should be sent to CIUK.

We encourage you to think about how you will make your presentation as engaging as possible, and include this in your abstract. Abstracts may be submitted in PDF or Microsoft Word DOC format. Full papers, or more detailed outlines of presentations will then be requested from successful applicants.

We aspire to make the conference as inclusive as possible, recognising the benefits of having a vibrant, diverse community. We welcome applications from under-represented groups and will promote a supportive culture for our speakers and all participants.

Important deadlines
  • Monday 2 October – deadline for abstracts
  • Monday 16 October – successful applicants will be informed

We look forward to receiving your abstracts.
