The PASC Conference, co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS), is committed to fostering interdisciplinary exchange in computational science, with a strong emphasis on methods, tools, algorithms, application challenges, and novel techniques and usage of high performance computing.

The drive to exascale computing, together with new computational paradigms in machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data present opportunities and challenges for traditional HPC users and new user communities.

The PASC20 conference – chaired by Professor Bastien Chopard (University of Geneva, Switzerland) and Professor Sinéad Ryan (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland) – invites scientists and researchers to the University of Geneva from June 29 to July 1, 2020 to discuss New Challenges and New Computing Paradigms in scientific computing.

The technical program will feature keynote presentations, papers, minisymposia and poster sessions, a panel discussion, and an interdisciplinary dialogue.

The conference is organized around the following eight scientific domains: Chemistry and Materials, Climate and Weather, Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, Emerging Application Domains, Engineering, Life Sciences, Physics, and Solid Earth Dynamics.

PASC20 welcomes submissions for paper, minisymposium, and poster contributions. Peer-reviewed papers accepted for the conference will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
