The 19th IEEE International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed
Scientific and Engineering Computing (PDSEC-18) http://cse.stfx.ca/~pdsec18 
will be held on May 25, 2018 in Vancouver in conjunction with IPDPS 2018.

  PDSEC-18 papers are due Friday 25 Jan 2018 (AoE) 

Scope and Interests:
  The technological trends of HPC system evolution indicates
  increasing burden for application developers in management of the
  unprecedented levels of complexity in hardware and the associated
  performance characteristics. Many existing application codes are
  unlikely to perform well on future systems without major
  modifications or even complete rewrites. It will be important to
  utilize, in unison, many characteristics such as multiple levels of
  parallelism, many lightweight cores, complex memory hierarchies,
  novel I/O technology, power capping, system-wide temporal/spatial
  performance heterogeneity and reliability concerns. The HPC
  community has developed new programming models, algorithms,
  libraries and tools to meet these challenges in order to accommodate
  productive code development and effective system use. However, the
  application community still needs to identify the benefit through
  practical evaluations.

  Thus, the focus of this workshop is on methodologies and experiences
  of scientific and engineering applications and algorithms to achieve
  sustainable code development for better productivity, application
  performance and reliability. In particular, we will focus on the
  following topics in parallel and distributed scientific and
  engineering applications, but not limited to:

  * Code modernization methodologies and experiences for adapting the
    changes in future computing systems such as porting of legacy
    simulation code and libraries/tools to facilitate code refactoring
    and porting.
  * Application and algorithm development of various parallel and
    distributed programming models/framework such as CAF, UPC, Chapel,
    X10, Charm++, HPX, Uintah, Legion, and/or the interoperation of
    multiple models within single applications (e.g. MPI+X where X is
    OpenMP, OpenCL, CUDA etc). We appreciate the experiences of early
    adopters of new programming models and platforms.
  * Experience in new tools and libraries for effective application
    development, including performance tools, application development
    frameworks, Domain Specific Languages (DSLs), etc.
  * Tools and techniques for improving application reliability and
    resilience. This includes both performance and correctness issues,
    with the latter arising from adverse operating conditions
    (e.g. low power) or very large system scales.
  * Use cases of enterprise distributed computing technology (such as
    MapReduce, Data Analytics and Machine-learning tools) in
    scientific and engineering applications.
  * Large-scale parallel and distributed algorithms supporting science
    and engineering applications.
  * Methodologies and experiences in developing large-scale applications.
