EMiT2019: The Emerging Technologies & Techniques Conference of 2019

University of Huddersfield, U.K. 9-11 April 2019
Abstract submission deadline: Sunday 16 December 2018

As a colleague who previously attended or expressed interest in EMiT, we would like to encourage you to consider submitting an abstract for our forthcoming conference hosted by University of Huddersfield in April 2019.

Following on from recent successful conferences, the EMiT conference series brings together experts from all areas of computing and engineering to examine how to best take advantage of the changing landscape of computer hardware. The conference aims to overcome research barriers for fields such as computational fluid dynamics, AI, data science, computational mechanics, life sciences, and financial modelling. EMiT2019 will provide a platform to present, hear about and discuss the cutting edge in computing technologies and techniques.

Huddersfield is an exciting market town with plenty of Victorian architecture, nestled in between Manchester and Leeds, with great train links directly from Manchester International Airport and the rest of the UK. Huddersfield is found near the Pennines in West Yorkshire, famously known as Bronte Country, named after the authors the Bronte sisters (Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall etc.) The second night will end with a conference meal and private tour of the famous Yorkshire Sculpture Park, situated in the grounds of the 18th century Bretton Hall.

We invite you to consider submitting an abstract to give a presentation on your work. All submissions accepted to EMiT 2019 will be published as part of the conference proceedings with an associated ISBN number. Accepted submissions will also be given the opportunity to submit an extended paper to be reviewed for inclusion in an IET journal special edition on emerging technology. And we are happy to consider “breaking news” presentations if you have work you would like to share but not necessarily publish.

Abstracts should be submitted via “EasyChair” by 16 December 2018. Full authoring details are available on the EMiT web pages.

As well as 2 days of invited and peer-reviewed presentations, we are offering a number of full 1 day training workshops on Deep Learning with NVIDIA GPUs and Neuromorphic computing with the SpiNNaker hardware, as well as insight into quantum computing, and selected stalls from vendors including our sponsors IET and ClusterVision.

Registration for the conference, and optional training workshop, is open, with discounts for students.
