Special session on
High Performance Computing in Astronomy and Astrophysics

hosted by 26th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel,
Distributed, and Network-Based Processing (PDP 2018) held in Cambridge,
UK, March 21-23 2018

Call For Papers

High Performance Computing is an essential tool in almost all branches
of science today and astronomy and astrophysics are no exceptions. For
example, large scale computations of complex systems of equations that
are either intractable with analytic techniques or require an huge
amount of time are one of the key reasons why astrophysicists needs HPC.
Furthermore, the exponential increase in the amount of data that will be
gathered by future experiments such as LSST, CTA, SKA (more data than
the Internet?) is posing a serious challenge to astronomers’ ability to
analyze them. The consequence is even increasing interest in
parallelizing algorithms and analysis techniques or porting legacy
applications to clusters and supercomputers, e.g. those for cosmological
simulations, and the use of distributed technologies, Cloud computing,
GPUs and other massively parallel architectures as Xeon Phy for the
management and processing of large datasets. The aim of this special
session is to present the latest efforts in the development of
parallel/distributed systems and algorithms and to foster the
integration of researchers interested in HPC, astronomy and astrophysics.

Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to,
experiences in:
- Cosmological simulations
- Modelling protoplanetary disks and planetary systems
- Simulation of plasma phenomena (solar and stellar physics; accretion
processes; shocks and jets at all scales)
- 3D simulations of supernova explosions and stellar mergers
- Big Data challenges: access, (real-time) reduction, analysis,
modelling, data mining


Important dates

Paper submission: 3rd November 2017
Acceptance notification: 1st December 2017
Camera ready due: 22nd December 2018
Conference: 21th - 23th Mar 2018


Submission guidelines

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in
the Conference proceedings format ( double-column, 10pt) to the
conference main track or to Special Sessions through the EasyChair
conference submission system
with an indication of the name of the Special Session.


All accepted papers will be included in the same volume, published by
the Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper Preparation
and Submission Instructions will be published after the notification of
acceptance. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and
present their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be
submitted to IEEE explore, CDSL, and for indexing among others, to DBLP,
Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
