  The 15th International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Scientific 
  and Engineering Computing, May 23, 2014, Phoenix, Arizona USA
  to be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2014. http://cse.stfx.ca/~pdsec14

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
  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
- Scientific and engineering computing on HPC architectures, including
  (but not limited to) supercomputers, parallel computers, clusters,
  multicores, GPUs, FPGAs,
- 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,
- 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

  * signal and image processing
  * ... 

Paper Submission Guidelines
  All papers must be submitted electronically and in PDF format. The 
  material presented should be original and not published or under
  submission elsewhere. Authors should submit full papers of up to 10
  pages, following strictly the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings
  Manuscript style, using two-column, single-space format, with 10-point
  font size. Figures and references must be included in the 10
  pages. Oversized papers will be automatically rejected by the PC
  chairs. 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.
