HPCe 2011 : High Performance Computing with application in environment
Call For Papers
The purpose of this workshop is to present and discuss the state-of-the-art in high-performance scientific computing with applications in environment. Thus, the presentations will focus on environmental application needing high-performance computing, physical modeling of large-scale problems, and the development of scalable algorithms for solving large scale problems on modern parallel and distributed high-performance computing platforms, including multicore architectures, GPGPUs/GPUs, and clusters.
Furthermore, during the workshop the participants will have the opportunity to discuss and share the latest research in parallel and distributed high performance computing systems applied to problems in environmental sciences - e.g. meteorology, various life-sciences, geology, geography, seismology, geophysics, etc. The emphasis of this workshop will be on running complex realistic applications at sustained performance in production-grade HPC environments. Scalability studies of complex computing codes on HPC platforms and the tools and development environments facilitating improved scalability are among the expected contributions.

We invite submissions in the form of:
+ research papers,
+ extended abstracts
Papers of up to 8 pages (IEEE conference style http://synasc11.info.uvt.ro/submission), must be submitted electronically through EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=synasc2011workshops).
Research papers must contain original research results not submitted and not published elsewhere.
Authors which want to present work in progress or discuss new aspects or a survey of their older research results at the workshop are welcome to submit an extended abstract (up to 4 pages).
Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics.
The papers accepted for presentation will be included in a locally edited proceedings (electronic version on a memory stick).
Accepted research papers should be presented at the conference and the best papers will be selected for publication in the post proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society - Conference Publishing Services (ISI Proceedings).
Extended versions of the papers accepted and presented at the workshop will be considering to be published as a special issue in the Mathematics and Computer Science Annals of the West University of Timisoara (http://www.math.uvt.ro/anmath/) or in SCPE - Scalable Computing: Practice and Experience (http://www.scpe.org/) (under ISI Thomson evaluation).
Other possibilities for publication will be formulated soon after the workshop.
