    June 8-10, 2016
    SwissTech Convention Center
    EPFL, Switzerland

    The PASC Conference is a platform for interdisciplinary research across the areas of computational science, high-performance computing, and various domain sciences. PASC16 builds on a successful history with 350 international attendees in 2015. This year PASC continues to expand its program and welcomes your participation in a substantially larger event.

    Target Audience

    The PASC16 Conference seeks to engage participants from academia, research labs and industry to address important issues in HPC and computational science. The PASC16 Conference is inviting researchers from diverse scientific backgrounds to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange of expertise. The conference is an opportunity for researchers in branches of science that require computer modeling and high-performance simulations to discuss computational techniques and technologies.


    The PASC16 Conference will offer five plenary sessions and one public lecture, as well as minisymposia, contributed talks and poster sessions in eight different scientific domains. It will also present for the first time a session dedicated to papers selected for publication in the ACM Digital Library. The program will provide time for discussions within PASC scientific disciplines (inter-PASC Networks discussions), and an exhibition space.

    Preparation of presentations: technical information

    • For your presentations you have to use your own laptop and video adapters.
    • The following video outputs will be supported: VGA, HDMI. All screens are full HD (1920X1080).
    • The preferred format for the presentations is 16:9.
    • For the slide show you are free to use the application you prefer (PowerPoint, Keynote, PDF).
    • A Logitech wireless presenter with laser will be available in every room.


    Researchers from academia and industry are encouraged to participate and present their research in the form of paper, minisymposia, contributed talks and/or poster presentations. PASC16 welcomes submissions in the following scientific fields:

    • Climate and Weather
    • Computer Science and Mathematics
    • Emerging Domains (Special Topic for minisymposia, contributed talks and poster: HPC and Big Data)
    • Engineering
    • Life Sciences
    • Materials
    • Physics
    • Solid Earth

    Contributions should be submitted using the online submissions system.

    Guidelines regarding the submission process and access to the online submissions system are available at: www.pasc16.org/submission
