PASC18 Conference

Congress Center Basel
CHF 450.00


PASC18, co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS), will be held from July 2 to 4, 2018 at the Congress Center Basel, located in Basel, Switzerland

PASC18 is the fifth edition of the PASC Conference series, an international platform for the exchange of competences in scientific computing and computational science, with a strong focus on methods, tools, algorithms, application challenges, and novel techniques and usage of high performance computing.

The conference will be chaired by Prof. Florina Ciorba (University of Basel) and Prof. Erik Lindahl (Stockholm University, Sweden) and is centered around the theme of Fast and Big Data, Fast and Big Computation.

“Large computations consume and generate massive amounts of data, and processing of big data requires large amounts of computational power, which increasingly depends on parallel computation,” explain Ciorba and Lindahl. “The PASC18 theme emphasizes our vision of the close coupling of data and computation. Exposing and expressing massive and irregular parallelism in computational problems are key challenges for exploiting the massive and heterogeneous parallelism available in current and expected in future HPC systems, as well as to find new ways of generating scientific insight from data and models. Through its rich, diverse, and interactive program, PASC18 will highlight the computational approaches that computational scientists, computer scientists, and practitioners employ today and will employ over the next decades to address these challenges.”


PASC18 welcomes submissions for minisymposium, paper, and poster contributions that demonstrate innovative research in scientific computing related to the following scientific domains:

  • Chemistry and Materials
