Call For Papers



5th Workshop on Python for High Performance and Scientific Computing

November 17, 2014, New Orleans, USA

In cooperation with SIGHPC

Held in conjunction with SC15: The International Conference on High
Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis


Python is an established, high-level programming language with a large
community in academia and industry. It is a general-purpose language adopted
by many scientific applications such as computational fluid dynamics,
biomolecular simulation, artificial intelligence, statistics, data analysis,
scientific visualization etc. The use of Python for scientific, high-
performance parallel, and distributed computing has increased in recent years.
Especially, the use of Python rises for data analysis and Big Data processing.
Traditionally, system administrators are using Python a lot for automating
tasks. Since Python is extremely easy to learn with a very clean syntax, it is
well-suited for education in scientific computing, mathematics, and other
disciplines. Programmers are much more productive using Python.

The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners from industry,
academia, and the wider community using Python in all aspects of high
performance and scientific computing. The goal is to present Python
applications from mathematics, science, and engineering, to discuss general
topics regarding the use of Python (such as language design and performance
issues), and to share experience using Python in scientific computing

The main focus areas of the workshop will be on hybrid programming where
Python is combined with traditional HPC languages (e.g., Fortran or C/C++) and
on comparison with other dynamic languages that are used for HPC and technical
computing (e.g., Julia, MATLAB, or R). Another focus area is on Python
programming for modern multi-core processors and accelerators (e.g., GPUs or
Intel Xeon Phi) and for quantum computers.


Please submit papers related to Python usage in any of the following topics
and application areas as well as on broader topics in business, science,
technology, engineering, education, mathematics or multidisciplinary topics:

* Hybrid programming and integration with other programming languages
* Comparison of Python with other dynamic languages for HPC
* Python for multi-core processors and quantum computers
* Interactive parallel computing
* High-performance computing applications with Python
* Performance analysis, profiling, and debugging of Python code
* System administration
* Scientific visualization
* Problem solving environments and frameworks
* Education in scientific computing
* Big data and data analytics


We invite you to submit a paper of up to 10 pages via the submission site
( All papers will be
published in cooperation with SIGHPC through ACM Digital Library and IEEE
Xplore. The formatting instructions are available here:
