Scope and Objectives:
Most of the legacy and even some of the current advanced Weather, Climate and solid Earth Sciences (WCES) applications require code re-engineering, improving computational kernels, new parallel model design and new algorithms, in order to exploit new and emerging computational architectures and to increase the spatial resolution. At higher resolution, new physical aspects can be taken into account and integrated into the climate models. It is necessary to design efficient and scalable computational kernels and algorithms, as well as considering new approaches and paradigms to better exploit high levels of concurrency in HPC systems. Moreover, due to the emergency of Exascale systems, issues related to energy-efficiency should be carefully addressed. 

The workshop aims at discussing the state-of-the-art research in high-performance computing for WCES applications. Emphasis will be on novel advanced algorithms, formulations and simulations, as well as the related issues for computational environments and infrastructures. 

The workshop aims also at facilitating communication among diverse scientific expertise geoscientists, applied mathematicians, computational and computer scientists to exchange advanced knowledge, insights and science discoveries.

The HPC-WCES Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
	• Modeling & Simulation on HPC systems for WCES applications
	• Computational models in Climate and solid Earth Sciences (including seismology, geodynamics and volcanology)
	• Climate Change Resilience 
	• Advanced numerical methods for WCES applications, such as FEM, FDM, FVM, Mesh-Free method, Particle method, and etc.
	• Evaluating Models for Climate Changes
	• Efficiency and Scalability analysis of WCES models on high end computing infrastructures
	• Methodological approaches for performance analysis
	• Advanced algorithms for WCES applications to reduce communications
	• Numerical algorithms and hybrid parallel approaches for WCES models
	• Advanced algorithms for WCES applications to reduce energy consumption
	• Optimization and reengineering of WCES applications for both conventional multi- and many cores processors, and accelerators such as GPU, MIC
	• Frameworks and tools for development of codes for WCES models for Peta/Exa Scale Systems 
	• Integration of HPC and Cloud computing for WCES applications

Instructions for authors:

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to High Performance Computing for Weather, Climate, and solid Earth Sciences.  Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to  http://hpcs2016.cisedu.info/1-call-for-papers/call-for-posters for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of submission you have.  Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. 
Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Workshop paper submission EasyChair site at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hpcwces2016.  Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. 
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, and references.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2016 conference to present the paper at the Workshop.  


Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2016 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in major indexing services accordingly. 

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers. 

International Program Committee:
All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by the workshop technical program committee members following similar criteria used in HPCS 2016 and will be published as part of the HPCS 2016 Proceedings.
