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 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).
PASC19 will be held from June 12 to 14, 2019 at ETH Zurich, located in Zurich, Switzerland.
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.

The program includes keynotes from Dan Jacobson (ORNL) on genetic architectures underlying complex traits in applications from bioenergy to human clinical genomics, Keren Bergman (Columbia University) on embedded photonic interconnect technologies and Thierry Poinsot (IMFT CNRS) on simulating instabilities in aerospace propulsion systems.
Numerical ocean modeling will be the topic of conversation in an interdisciplinary dialogue between Fangli Qiao (First Institute of Oceanography) and Eleni Chatzi (ETH Zurich).
The theme of the conference Exascale and Beyond will be explored in a panel session with high-performance computing thought leaders from China, Europe, Japan and the US.
