PDSEC 2011 : The 12th IEEE International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Scientific and Engineering Computing
Call For Papers
Scope and Interests:
The field of high performance computing has been prominent since the 1940s, and has become increasingly significant as recent advances in electronic and integrated circuit technologies have made it more widely accessible. The hardware is becoming faster, less expensive and more cost effective, which will result in a proliferation in the application of parallel and distributed systems. Scientific and engineering application domains play a key role in shaping future research and development activities in academia and industry, especially when the solution of large and complex problems must cope with tight timing constraints.
This special workshop will bring together computer scientists, applied mathematicians and researchers to present, discuss and exchange ideas, results, work in progress and experiences in the area of parallel and distributed computing for problems in science and engineering applications and inter-disciplinary applications.
Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
- development of advanced parallel and distributed methods,
- parallel and distributed computing techniques and codes,
- practical experiences using various parallel and distributed systems with software such as MPI, PVM, and HPFortran, OpenMP, UPC, mpC etc.
- domain decomposition,
- loop and task parallelism,
- scheduling and load balancing,
- compiler, hardware and OS issues for scientific and engineering computing,
- memory system and I/O support for scientific and engineering computing,
- scientific and engineering computing on HPC architectures, including supercomputers, parallel computers, clusters, multicores, GPUs, FPGAs, etc,
- hardware/software support for performance, power and energy-aware applications,
- network, mobile/wireless processing and computing,
- performance modeling and evaluation of scientific and engineering computing,
- cluster and grid scientific and engineering computing.
- biologically inspired algorithms in system model, design and applications.
- application areas include (but are not limited to):
o computational fluid dynamics and mechanics
o material sciences
o space, weather, climate systems and global changes
o computational environment and energy systems
o computational ocean and earth sciences
o combustion system simulation
o computational chemistry

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research. Submitted papers should be at most 20 pages (IEEE CS Style is recommended), must be in either PS or PDF format, and should list 5 to 0 keywords. The submission is via the online submission system. Program Committee members and external reviewers will provide at least three reviews to the authors. Papers will be ranked for relevance to the workshop, originality, and technical merit. Accepted papers with at most 8 pages will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press as a part of IPDPS-11 proceedings. Selected best papers will be considered for a special issue of a SCI journal.
