Scope of the conference

PASC15 Conference is inviting researchers from diverse scientific background to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange of expertise in HPC and computational science. The conference is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in branches of science that require computer modeling and high-performance simulations to discuss computational techniques and technologies. PASC15 Conference seeks to engage participants from the academia, research labs and industry to address important issues in HPC and computational science resulting from applications of interest to society and hardware innovations.


PASC15 Conference will offer four plenary sessions, one public lecture, 24 mini symposia with each up to eight talks, 80 contributed talks, one inter-PASC Networks discussion, one joint plenary session with the satellite conference Frontiers in Computational Physics, a poster session, and information stands.


Researchers from the academic and from the corporate world are encouraged to participate and present their research area in the form of minisymposia, contributed talks and/or poster presentations. PASC15 Conference welcomes submissions in the following scientific fields:

  • Climate and Weather
  • Solid Earth
  • Life Science
  • Chemistry and Materials
  • Physics
  • Computer Science and Mathematics
  • Engineering
  • Emerging Domains

Abstracts are to be submitted using the online submission system. Cross-disciplinary approaches are highly solicited.
