Every year the progress in the field of lattice field theory is reviewed at large international conference. This year the lattice 2017 conference is in Granda Spain. Typically between 300 and 400 people attend this conference. There are various different types of presentations made at a large conference: poster, parallel talk, and plenary talk. A plenary talk is presented to the all the people attending the conference and is the most prestigious type of talk.

This year Dr. Antonio Rago from the center is presenting a plenary talk, to the over 300 strong audience of the lattice conference, with the title: *Lattice QCD on new chips: a community summary*.

Additional security checks on cars boarding a ferry were required. This slowed down the cars entering the ferry. So the students were asked to design additional scenarios, such as adding more security booths, or opening the ticket booths for longer, so that more cars boarded the ferry on time. The software used was SIMUL8.

On the 27th April there was a meeting of PyPlym. Three staff members from Mathematics and one from computer science attended. There was a useful practical session, where code to modify the sensor output from a mobile phone was added to KML file, which could be displayed in Google Earth. There were two talks as well.

As part of our Mathematics with High Performance Computing degree we teach Python in the second year.

The computer time will be used for theoretical particle physics calculations to test the standard model of particle physics.

The award also includes 8 months of software support to improve the efficiency of one of the key codes.
