The 14th International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Scientific 
and Engineering Computing, May 20-24, 2013 Boston, Massachusetts USA
to be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2013. http://cse.stfx.ca/~pdsec13

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 engi- neering 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 inter- disciplinary 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 applications,
- network, mobile/wireless processing and computing,
- performance modeling and evaluation of scientific and engineering computing,
- 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

Submission Information: Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that
  present original unpublished research. Submitted papers should be at
  most 10 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. Accepted
  papers with at most 8 pages will be published by IEEE Computer
  Society Press as IPDPS-13 workshop proceedings. Selected best papers
  will be considered for a special issue of an international
  journal. 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.
