The conference is an interdisciplinary event in high performance computing that brings together domain science, applied mathematics and computer science – where computer science is focused on enabling the realization of scientific computation. 


PASC17 invites participants from academia, research laboratories and industry to discuss the state-of-the-art in computational science in the context of high-performance computing.  


The conference offers three days of stimulating and thought-provoking technical sessions, including keynote presentations, minisymposia, peer-reviewed papers, panels and poster sessions. The conference is co-sponsored by ACM SIGHPC, and papers are published in the ACM Digital Library.  


PASC17 welcomes submissions in the following scientific fields:

Chemistry and Materials
Climate and Weather
Computer Science and Applied Mathematics
Emerging Domains in HPC (Special topic: Precision Medicine)
Life Sciences
Solid Earth Dynamics


A minisymposium at PASC17 is a two-hour session of four presentations on a single topic of current importance that addresses research topics related to domain science, applied mathematics, computer science or software engineering in the context of high performance computing. 

The session should include speakers from more than one country, and be designed such that the speakers bring a range of different perspectives and views to the topic. Organizers are strongly encouraged to include women and/or members of other underrepresented groups in their proposals.
