PASC20 Conference

When: 29/06/2020 - 01/07/2020
Where: Geneva, Switzerland


PASC20 is the seventh 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 is co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the PASC structuring project and it is managed by the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS). The local host of PASC20 is the University of Geneva, Switzerland's second largest university.

PASC20 will be held from June 29 to July 01, 2020 at University of Geneva (Uni Mail), located in Geneva, Switzerland.

Scope

Theme: New Challenges, New Computing Paradigms

Computational science is crucially important across diverse research communities from traditional topics in physics and chemistry to new applications in life and social sciences.

The drive to exascale computing, together with new computational paradigms in machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data present opportunities for science and society but also significant challenges for both traditional HPC and the new user communities.

This growing community requires increased computing power, new heterogeneous architecture paradigms, new software and new policies for resource access while benchmarks like High-Performance Linpack are becoming less and less representative of the computing ecosystems. Although new hardware solutions are emerging, computers become fatter, not faster, and exploiting the coming exascale systems remains a challenge for many traditional HPC applications.

PASC20 aims to open discussions on these new challenges, explore problems and propose solutions to address them and shape the future of scientific computing.

Target Audience

PASC20  seeks to engage participants from academia, research labs and industry to address important issues in HPC and computational science. PASC20 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.

Program

As in previous years, the technical program of PASC20 is organized around eight scientific domains:

  • Climate and Weather
  • Chemistry and Materials
  • Computer Science and Applied Mathematics
  • Emerging Application Domains (incl. but not limited to social sciences, finance)
  • Engineering (incl. but not limited to CFD, computational mechanics, computational engineering materials, turbulent flow)
  • Life Sciences (incl. but not limited to biophysics, genomics, bioinformatics, systems biology, neuroscience and computational biology)
  • Physics (incl. but not limited to astrophysics, cosmology, plasma modelling, QCD)
  • Solid Earth Dynamics

The three-day program will include keynote presentations, minisymposia, peer-reviewed papers, panels and poster sessions. The conference is co-sponsored by ACM SIGHPC, and full papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
