After a two-year forced break, we are excited to welcome as many of you as possible in person at the Congress Center Basel, in Basel, Switzerland, from June 27 to 29, 2022.We look forward to fruitful discussions while enjoying coffees and lunches together, and we’ve planned two optional evening dinner events for further networking and socializing.
While in-person participation at the conference is preferred, we understand that travel restrictions and personal circumstances might limit the ability of some attendees to join us in Basel. The technical program also offers participation opportunities for remote attendees.
The PASC22 conference is dedicated to advances in computing for tackling some of the biggest challenges facing humanity today: climate, pandemic and inequality. As an interdisciplinary conference, PASC22 provides an ideal platform to discuss advances in these and other high-impact areas – thereby leveraging our collective expertise in computational and data science at the service of our global community.
The program offers five keynote lectures, an interdisciplinary dialogue, over 170 talks in more than 40 minisymposium sessions; poster sessions; and 17 full research paper presentations which will be published in the Proceedings of the PASC Conference and accessible via the ACM Digital Library.
In line with this year’s challenge “Computing and Data ….For All Humankind” the event program highlights include keynotes by Pier Luigi Vidale (University of Reading) on the state-of-the-art in climate research towards global storm-resolving climate models, Olivia Keiser (Institute of Global Health, University of Geneva), who will help us navigate the domain of epidemic diseases and the possibilities and challenges of epidemiology today, and Sheperd Doeleman (Harvard University), who will talk about the possibility to acquire direct imaging of supermassive black holes with the Event Horizon Telescope. We will discuss how data science can be used to increase social equality in a dialogue that features Cornell University Professor Emma Pierson, who develops data science and machine learning methods to study inequality and healthcare, and Professor Michael Hengartner, who is President of ETH Board.
