PASC19 is the sixth 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.
PASC19 is co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the PASC structuring project.
The conference is managed by the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS). The local host of PASC19 is ETH Zurich, one of the two Federal Institutes of Technology in Switzerland coordinated by swissuniversities.
PASC19 will be held from June 12 to 14, 2019 at ETH Zurich, located in Zurich, Switzerland.
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
- Climate and Weather
- Solid Earth Dynamics
- 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. The conference provides an exhibition space for showcasing cutting-edge research and development.
ISC High Performance and the PASC Conference are pleased to announce that ISC 2019 and PASC19, two major events in the European HPC ecosystem, are scheduled back-to-back in June 2019.
Don’t miss the opportunity to combine the two events. ISC High Performance and PASC look forward to welcoming you to Germany and Switzerland for thought-provoking technical sessions and additional networking opportunities.
About the PASC structuring project
The PASC structuring project is supported by the Council of Federal Institutes of Technology (ETH Board). The structuring project has been initiated in 2013 and the second phase will come to completion in 2020.
PASC is coordinated by CSCS, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre of the ETH Zurich, in collaboration with the Università della Svizzera italiana and with the other Swiss universities and the EPF Lausanne.
The platforms overarching goal is to position Swiss computational sciences in the emerging exascale-era. It is complementary to the supercomputing-hardware-focused elements of the Swiss High-Performance and Networking (HPCN) initiative. The PASC consolidates and builds on the achievements of the High-Performance and High-Productivity Computing (HP2C) project, which supported 13 large-scale projects in the period 2009-2013.
PASC aims to promote joint effort to address key scientific issues in different domain sciences through interdisciplinary collaborations between domain scientists, computational scientists, software developers, computing centres and hardware developers. Thus, PASC builds on the principle of co-design, namely that software codes exploiting the potential of the next generation of computing architectures need to be jointly and interactively developed by these actors throughout the whole value chain.
