There is still time to register for next week's Many-core and Reconfigurable Supercomputing Conference (MRSC), which this year is being held at the University of Bristol from April 11-13th.

MRSC is Europe's largest conference focusing on the use of GPUs and FPGAs in High Performance Computing (HPC).

Keynote talks include:

* Professor Satoshi Matsuoka, Tokyo Tech: "Tsubame 2.0 -- Environmentally-Friendly Petascale Computing and its Possible Contributions to High-Resolution Natural Disaster Simulations"

* Dr Kristzian Flautner, VP of Research and Development at ARM: "Scaling cubic millimeters to cubic kilometers: computing challenges over the next decade"

* Professor David May: "Novel approaches to energy efficient processor design"

The full conference programme is out now:

The conference also includes a vendor exhibit area with the opportunity for hands-on time with many of the latest GPU and FPGA technologies. See our sponsor area for a complete list of who'll be there: http://www.mrsc2011.eu/sponsors.

There is an opening drinks reception at the award-winning hands-on science exhibition, "@Bristol", while the conference dinner is onboard Brunel's historic SS Great Britain.

There are already over 100 delegates signed up so this is proving to be quite a popular event, but there's always space for a few more, and we look forward to seeing many of you at the conference next week!
