Cloud & High Performance Computing in Biomedicine

Cloud & High Performance Computing in Biomedicine
27 April 2017, UCL, London UK

You can now catch up on the presentations by going to our YouTube channel.

The day involved presentations from our Core and Associate Partners punctuated with discussions over tea and coffee, with lunch provided.

This meeting provided a forum for users from academia, industry and healthcare sectors to meet with open source software developers alongside independent software and hardware vendors, in order to determine what the best selection of capabilities is to meet their own needs. It helped CompBioMed to define directions in which we would like to advance our users’ interests.
