HPC Research Accepted for Publication at the ICS 2022 Conference
Two papers by researchers at the Department of Computer Science have been accepted to the 36th ACM International Conference on Supercomputing ICS 2022 to be held on the 28-30th of June this year. ICS is one of the most prominent and revered conferences in High Performance Computing, highly regarded by the HPC community for publishing leading-edge research in this area. The two papers accepted are:
- High Throughput Multidimensional Tridiagonal System Solvers on FPGAs (Preprint) by Kamalavasan Kamalakkannan and Gihan Mudalige at Warwick, together with Istvan Reguly (PPCU) and Suhaib Fahmy (KAUST).
- Clairvoyant: A Log-Based Transformer-Decoder for Failure Prediction in Large-Scale Systems by Khalid Alharthi and Arshad Jhumka at Warwick, together with Sheng Di, Franck Cappello at Argonne National Laboratory. Preprint. The ACM ICS2022 full program can be found here.
Our second year PhD students showcased their research in a poster session on the Physics concourse on Wednesday 18th May. PhD students are really the powerhouse of research in the department and it was great to hear all about the fantastic progress they are making. We awarded poster prizes to Luke Smith (1st place), Manisha Islam and John Pontin (joint runners up) for their particularly fascinating, clear and enthusiastic poster presentations. Many thanks to all who took part in the event.

About REF 2021
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) is the UK’s system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions.
The REF is undertaken by the four UK higher education funding bodies: Research England, the Scottish Funding Council (SFC), the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW), and the Department for the Economy, Northern Ireland (DfE).
A senior delegation of directors at SCG, enjoyed an extensive tour of the University’s state-of-the-art facilities including WMG’s Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Centre (AMMC).
SCG, based in Thailand is one of the world’s largest cement and concrete manufacturers. The Group is investing in world-leading technology for construction including Concrete4Change. Concrete4Change is an award-winning R&D start-up, supported by WMG and the School of Engineering, developing net-zero concrete technology.
Dr Sid Pourfalah, Founder and CEO of Concrete4Change, and Honorary Associate Professor at the University of Warwick commented: “We are delighted to host SCG at the University of Warwick. The University has been an invaluable R&D partner in our journey so far, and with SCG now entering into collaboration with Concrete4Change, we can scale our presence in the market and create the true net-zero pathway that the concrete industry desperately needs.”
