EuroMPI and Women in HPC partnership to improve diversity

Guest post by: Daniel Holmes, EPCC and Chair of EuroMPI 2016. EuroMPI 2016 and Women in HPC are delighted to announce the first partnership between Women in HPC and a High Performance Computing Conference. EuroMPI is the pre-eminent meeting for users, developers and researchers to interact and discuss new developments and applications of message passing parallel…


Broadening participation in HPC: taking outreach to the next level

One of the reasons why EPCC set up Women in HPC is because we recognised there was a problem. The problem was the apparent lack of women in the supercomputing community. When my colleagues and I started Women in HPC, our purpose was very clear: to recruit and retain women in the international HPC workforce.…


How many women should you expect at an academic event?

By Simon Hettrick, Deputy Director, Software Sustainability Institute I’ve attended a lot of events during my time in academia, but I can think of only one where women outnumbered men (one of the BSA’s Science Communication Conferences). This is not a revelation, of course. It’s well known that women are poorly represented at events: as…

Women in Scientific Application Software – from the NSCCS perspective

Guest post by Alex Simperler, NSCCS, Imperial College London. Intrigued by talking to Toni Collis of  “Women in High Performance Computing” who are working towards equal representation in HPC, I started to question how “equal” we are in Scientific Application Software usage. The NSCCS – short for EPSRC National Service for Computational Chemistry Software –…
