PASC19 Conference

ETH Zurich

PASC19, co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS), will be held from June 12 to 14, 2019 at ETH Zurich, located in Zurich, Switzerland.

PASC19 is the sixth edition of the PASC Conference series, an international and interdisciplinary 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. Haohuan Fu (National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi, China) and Prof. Simon Scheidegger (University of Lausanne, Switzerland).


Theme: Exascale and Beyond

Hardware and software, the Ying and the Yang of the supercomputing community, have always been fundamental driving forces that have spurred mutual development. The PASC19 theme “Exascale and Beyond” aims to foster the dialogue and interaction among those two branches of HPC research to jointly move forward in the advent of Exascale computers.

Through its rich and interactive program, PASC19 aims to highlight the common challenges and the opportunities for computer architects, software developers, and domain experts in the realm of Exascale systems. As a traditional multi-disciplinary conference, PASC19 is committed to promoting the interaction among scientists from different domains, with the goal to collect and inspire ideas for exascale systems, applications, and the related science.

Target Audience

PASC19  seeks to engage participants from academia, research labs and industry to address important issues in HPC and computational science. PASC19 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.


As in previous years, the technical program of PASC19 is organized around eight scientific domains:

  • Chemistry and Materials
  • Life Sciences
  • Physics
  • Climate and Weather
  • Solid Earth Dynamics
  • Engineering (e.g. CFD, computational mechanics, computational engineering materials, turbulent flow, …)
  • Computer Science and Applied Mathematics
  • Emerging Application Domains (e.g. social sciences, finance, …)

The three-day program includes 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.
