It is just a month before the start of PASC17 – in the stunning location of Lugano, Switzerland. Early-bird registration closes on Monday, May 29, so we invite you to register for the conference at your earliest convenience.
The PASC Conference is focused on interdisciplinarity – bringing domain scientists, computer scientists and applied mathematicians together to drive computational science forward into the future. With more than 200 talks in total, this year’s technical program is its biggest yet. Highlights include plenaries from Katrin Heitmann (University of Chicago) on the state of the art in cosmological simulations, Katrin Amunts (Forschungszentrum Jülich) on advances in simulating the human brain, and 2016 ACM Gordon Bell Prize winner Haohuan Fu (Tsinghua University) on scaling and optimizing climate and weather forecasting codes. Matthias Troyer from Microsoft Research will present the bleeding-edge in quantum computing theory and usage, while Horst Simon, Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, will discuss progress in neuromorphic computing and “superintelligence” – and whether humankind will ever be able to build truly self-aware or salient computers.
PASC17 offers three days of stimulating 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. The preliminary program is available here.
PASC17 is being held from June 26 to 28, 2017 at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Lugano, Switzerland
