Call For Papers
The PASC Conference series is an international and interdisciplinary platform for the exchange of knowledge in scientific computing and computational science with a strong focus on methods, tools, algorithms, application challenges, and novel techniques and usage of high performance computing.

The Conference is co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the PASC structuring project and it is managed by the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS). The local host of PASC21 is the University of Geneva, Switzerland's second largest university.

The goal of the PASC Conference Papers Program is to advance the quality of scientific communication between the various disciplines of computational science and engineering in the context of HPC. The program was built from an observation that the computer science community traditionally publishes in the proceedings of major international conferences, while domain science communities publish primarily in disciplinary journals – and neither of which is read regularly by the other. The PASC Conference provides a unique venue that enables interdisciplinary exchange in a manner that bridges the two scientific publishing cultures.

The technical program of PASC21 is organized around eight scientific domains:

    Chemistry and Materials
    Life Sciences (incl. but not limited to biophysics, genomics, bioinformatics, systems biology, neuroscience and computational biology, …)
    Physics (incl. but not limited to astrophysics, cosmology, plasma modelling, QCD, …)
    Climate and Weather
    Solid Earth Dynamics
    Engineering (incl. but not limited to CFD, computational mechanics, computational engineering materials, turbulent flow, …)
    Computer Science and Applied Mathematics
    Emerging Application Domains (incl. but not limited to social sciences, finance, …) 

PASC21 solicits high-quality contributions of original research related to scientific computing in all of these domains. Papers that engage with the theme of PASC21 – New Challenges, New Computing Paradigms – are particularly welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Extreme scalable methods in computational science and engineering, such as algorithms and software for scalable multi-scale, multi-physics, and high-fidelity computational science and engineering problems.
    Numerical methods, algorithms, or large-scale simulations in computational fluid dynamics, computational mechanics, computational engineering materials, turbulent flow, and computational cosmology.
    Effective use of advanced computing systems for large-scale scientific applications, including modern multi- and many-core CPUs and accelerators with deep memory hierarchies, and energy-efficient architectures.
    Best practices and tools for productive and sustainable scientific and engineering software development.
    The integration of large-scale experimental and observational scientific data and high-performance data analytics and computing.
    Reproducibility for computational science and engineering.
    Verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification.
    Domain specific languages; toolchains for source-to-source translation/adaption.
    Runtime systems and middleware, such as task- and data-driven computation on heterogeneous architectures.
    Algorithms and strategies for effective use of machine learning, deep learning or AI to accelerate computational science.
    Unstructured vs structured meshes for computational science applications at exascale
    Numerical algorithm development for exascale computing, including, but not limited to, communication avoiding algorithms, use of reduced or mixed precision, and integration of scalable numerical libraries in application software.
    Computational approaches for social sciences such as finance, urban planning, mobility or disaster response.

Papers accepted for PASC21 will be presented as talks, and published in the Proceedings of the PASC Conference, accessible via the ACM Digital Library. A selection of the highest quality papers may be given the opportunity of a plenary presentation. In selecting papers for plenary presentation, the Papers Committee will place particular weight on impact, interdisciplinarity and interest to a broad audience.
