Scope and Interests

The field of high performance computing has been prominent since the 1940s, and has become increasingly significant as recent advances in electronic and integrated circuit technologies have made it more widely accessible. The hardware is becoming faster, less expensive and more cost effective, which will result in a proliferation in the application of parallel and distributed systems. Scientific and engineering application domains play a key role in shaping future research and development activities in academia and industry, especially when the solution of large and complex problems must cope with tight timing constraints.

This special workshop will bring together computer scientists, applied mathematicians and researchers to present, discuss and exchange ideas, results, work in progress and experiences in the area of parallel and distributed computing for problems in science and engineering applications and inter-disciplinary applications.

Topics of interest include (but not limited to):

  • Development of advanced parallel and distributed algorithms, applications and middleware
  • Scientific and engineering computing on HPC architectures, including supercomputers, clusters, manycores, multicores, GPUs, FPGAs, etc
  • Practical experiences using various parallel and distributed programming models such as CAF, UPC, Global Arrays, Chapel, Cilk, Intel TBB, X10, Charm++, etc
  • Asynchronous many task programming models and their use case studies
  • Resilient algorithm, applications and programming models
  • Compiler, hardware and OS issues for scientific and engineering computing
  • Memory system and I/O support for scientific and engineering computing
  • Algorithm and application resiliency for scientific and engineering computing
  • Power and energy efficiency issues in scientific and engineering computing
  • Performance modeling, tuning and evaluation of scientific and engineering computing
  • Scientific and engineering computing using the Cloud
  • Biologically inspired algorithms in system model, design and applications
  • Network, mobile/wireless processing and computing
    • Computational fluid dynamics and mechanics
    • Material sciences
    • Space, weather, climate systems and global changes
    • Computational environment and energy systems
    • Computational ocean and earth sciences
    • Combustion system simulation
    • Computational chemistry
    • Computational physics
    • Bioinformatics and computational biology
    • Medical applications
    • Transportation systems simulations
    • Combinatorial and global optimization problems
    • Structural engineering
    • Computational electro-magnetic
    • Computer graphics
    • Virtual reality and multimedia
    • Semiconductor technology, and electronic circuits and system design
    • Dynamic systems
    • Computational finance

Paper Submission Guidelines

All papers must be submitted electronically and in PDF format. The material presented should be original and not published or under submission elsewhere. Authors should submit full papers of up to 10 pages, following strictly the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript style, using two-column, single-space format, with 10-point font size. Figures and references must be included in the 10 pages. Oversized papers will be automatically rejected by the PC chairs. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register early to attend the conference, in order for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings.
