The 13th International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Scientific
and Engineering Computing (PDSEC-12), May 25, 2011, Shanghai, China,
to be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2012. http://cse.stfx.ca/~pdsec12/

Submission Deadline: December 23, 2011

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 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
   interdisciplinary applications.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* development of advanced parallel and distributed methods,
* parallel and distributed computing techniques and codes,
* practical experiences using various parallel and distributed systems
   with software such as MPI, PVM, HPFortran, OpenMP, UPC, mpC etc.,
* domain decomposition,
* loop and task parallelism,
* scheduling and load balancing,
* compiler, hardware and OS issues for scientific and engineering
* memory system and I/O support for scientific and engineering
* hardware/software support for performance, power and energy aware
* network, mobile/wireless processing and computing,
* performance modeling and evaluation of scientific and engineering
* cluster and grid scientific and engineering computing,
* scientific and engineering computing on HPC architectures, including
   (but not limited to) supercomputers, parallel computers, clusters,
   multicores, GPUs, FPGAs,
* biologically inspired algorithms in system model, design and applications.

Application areas include (but are not limited to):
- 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-magnetism
- computer graphics
- virtual reality and multimedia
- semiconductor technology, electronic circuits, and system design
- dynamic systems
- computational finance
- data mining
- signal and image processing

Submission Information: Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that
   present original unpublished research. Submitted papers should be at
   most 20 pages (IEEE style is recommended), must be in PDF format, and
   should list 5 to 10 keywords. The submission is via an online
   submission system; see the workshop website for details. Program
   Committee members and external reviewers will provide at least three
   reviews to the authors. Papers will be ranked for relevance to the
   workshop and technical merit. Accepted papers with at most 8 pages
   will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press as IPDPS-12 workshop
   proceedings. Selected best papers will be considered for a special
   issue of an international journal.  Further information about the
   conference can be found at: http://cse.stfx.ca/~pdsec12 Important
