Exciting news! We're transitioning to the Statewide California Earthquake Center. Our new website is under construction, but we'll continue using this website for SCEC business in the meantime. We're also archiving the Southern Center site to preserve its rich history. A new and improved platform is coming soon!

The 3rd International Workshop on Advances in High-Performance Computational Earth Sciences: Applications and Frameworks (IHPCES), Barcelona, June 5-7, 2013

Date: 09/21/2012

Forwarded annoucement from Yifeng Cui, UCSD

The 3rd International Workshop on Advances in High-Performance Computational Earth Sciences: Applications and Frameworks (IHPCES) has an open call for papers, whose deadline is scheduled for January 15, 2013. We hope SCEC researchers can participate in this workshop by submitting a paper reflecting your current research in the area of computational science. IHPCES 2013 is in conjunction with the 13th International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS2013) "Computation at the Frontiers of Science", and will be held in Barcelona, Spain, June 5-7, 2013.

The purpose of the 3rd IHPCES workshop is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art research in high-performance computational earth sciences. Emphasis will be on novel advanced high-performance computational algorithms, formulations and simulations, as well as the related issues for computational environments and infrastructure for development of high-performance computational earth sciences. The workshop facilitates communication between earth scientists, applied mathematicians, computational and computer scientists and presents a unique opportunity for them to exchange advanced knowledge, insights and science discoveries. With the imminent arrival of the exascale era, strong multidisciplinary collaborations between these diverse scientific groups are critical for the successful development of high-performance computational earth sciences applications. Presentations and audience representation from the broad earth sciences community is strongly encouraged. Contributions are solicited in (but not restricted to) the following areas:

* Large-scale simulations using modern high-end supercomputers in earth sciences, such as atmospheric science, ocean science, solid earth science, and space & planetary science, as well as multi-physics simulations.
* Advanced numerical methods for computational earth sciences, such as FEM, FDM, FVM, BEM/BIEM, Mesh-Free method, Particle method, and etc.
* Numerical algorithms and parallel programming models for computational earth sciences.
* Optimization and reengineering of applications for multi/many-core processors and accelerators.
* Strategy, implementation and applications of pre/post processing and handling of large-scale data sets for computational earth sciences, such as parallel visualization, parallel mesh generation, I/O, data mining and etc.
* Frameworks and tools for development of codes for computational earth sciences on peta/exascale systems.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original, unpublished research and recent developments/theoretical considerations in Computational Earth Sciences and related issues by January 15, 2013. Accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings of ICCS 2013 published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series. After the conference, selected papers may be invited for a special issue of some major journals, such as Springer's Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences (LNES).
