The paper submission deadline for PDSEC 2014 is quickly approaching!  Papers are due January 20, 2014.

The 15th IEEE International Workshop on Distributed Scientific and Engineering Computing

	May 23, 2014
	Arizona Grand Resort
	Phoenix, Arizona, USA

	held in conjunction with IPDPS

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 special 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 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, and HPFortran, OpenMP, UPC, mpC etc.
	• Domain decomposition
	• Loop and task parallelism
	• Scheduling and load balancing
	• Compiler, hardware and OS issues for scientific and engineering computing
	• Memory system and I/O support for scientific and engineering computing
	• Scientific and engineering computing on HPC architectures, including supercomputers, parallel computers, clusters, multicores, GPUs, FPGAs, etc
	• 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
	• 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-magnetic
		• Computer graphics
		• Virtual reality and multimedia
		• Semiconductor technology, and electronic circuits and system design
		• Dynamic systems
		• Computational finance
		• Data mining
		• Signal and image processing
		• ...

The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society. Selected papers from the proceedings will be invited for publication in journal special issues.

Important Dates

Paper Submission Deadline	January 20, 2014 (FIRM)
Author Notification:	February 24, 2014
Final Manuscript Due:	March 14, 2014
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 theIEEE 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.
