Welcome to our group!

We act as a knowledge hub for all things related to future computing systems, and we also work with individuals in other fields such as frontier computing technology.

If you’re interested in FCS, it would be great to see you at our next event where you can meet like-minded practitioners and discuss latest developments.

We always welcome new perspectives - if you have any suggestions for a future event or activity, please contact us at groups@bcs.uk.

About us

We support the development of parallel processing in the UK by promoting discussion and networking between all involved parties. In particular, we encourage the dissemination of information for commercial benefit from UK research ­- via meetings, conferences, newsletters and email communication.

Key objectives of our group are to:

  • act as a focal point for information about future computing systems;
  • be a source of information for our members relating to our areas of activity;
  • arrange networking events and joint meetings with other specialist groups;
  • facilitate and support technical dissemination meetings in differing formats, including evening and half-day workshops, symposia and conferences;
  • organise outreach meetings with other professions interested in frontier computing technology.
