The purpose of this workshop is to present and discuss the state-of-the-art in high-performance scientific computing with applications and various fields, like environment, chemistry, physics etc. Thus, the presentations will focus on applications needing high-performance computing, physical modeling of large-scale problems, and the development of scalable algorithms for solving large scale problems on modern parallel and distributed high-performance computing platforms, including multicore architectures, GPGPUs/GPUs, and clusters. Furthermore, during the workshop the participants will have the opportunity to discuss and share the latest research in parallel and distributed high performance computing systems applied to scientific problems. The emphasis of this workshop will be on running complex realistic applications at sustained performance in production-grade HPC environments. Scalability studies of complex computing codes on HPC platforms and the tools and development environments facilitating improved scalability are among the expected contributions.


Specific topics for this workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Interactive HPC applications
  • Multi-Scale / Multi- Physics HPC applications
