Event: PASC17 Conference


The Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) is delighted to invite you to attend its next conference (PASC17) and to submit a contribution in the form of papers, minisymposia and/or posters on the event submission portal.

The PASC17 Conference, co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), will be held from June 26 to 28, 2017 at Palazzo dei Congressi, located in Lugano, Switzerland.
The local host of the PASC17 Conference is the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI).

The Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) Conference is an interdisciplinary conference in HPC that brings together domain science, applied mathematics and computer science - where computer science is focused on enabling the realization of scientific computation.


The PASC17 Conference seeks to engage participants from academia, research labs and industry to address important issues in HPC and computational science. PASC17 is inviting researchers from diverse scientific backgrounds to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange of expertise. The conference is an opportunity for researchers in branches of science that require computer modeling and high-performance simulations to discuss computational techniques and technologies.


The PASC Conference provides three days of stimulating and thought-provoking technical sessions, including keynote presentations, minisymposia, peer-reviewed papers, panels and poster sessions. The conference is co-sponsored by ACM SIGHPC, and full papers are published in the ACM Digital Library. The program will provide an exhibition space.

CSCS reserves a slot to offer a visit of the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre upon registration. It will be possible to register for free to this event closer to the conference date. Maximum number of registrants: 80.


Researchers from academia and industry are encouraged to participate and present their research in the form of papers, minisymposia and/or posters.
