Special Session on High Performance Computing in Modelling and
Simulation (HPCMS 2014)

Within the PDP 2014
The 22st Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, and
Network-Based Computing
Turin, Italy
12-14 February 2014



The development of models through which computers can simulate the
evolution of artificial and natural systems is fundamental for the
advancement of Science. In the last decades, the increasing power of
computers has allowed to considerably extend the application of
computing methodologies in research and industry, but also to the
quantitative study of complex phenomena. This has permitted a broad
application of numerical methods for differential equation systems
(e.g., FEM, FDM, etc.) on one hand, and the application of alternative
computational paradigms, such as Cellular Automata, Genetic
Algorithms, Neural networks, Swarm Intelligence, etc., on the other.
These latter have demonstrated their effectiveness for modelling
purposes when traditional simulation methodologies have proven to be

An important mission of the HPCMS Workshop is to provide a platform
for a multidisciplinary community composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, practitioners and experts from world leading
Universities, Institutions, Agencies and Companies in Computational
Science, and thus in the High Performance Computing for Modelling and
Simulation field.

HPCMS intent is to offer an opportunity to express and confront views
on trends, challenges, and state-of-the art in diverse application
fields, such as engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, geology,
medicine, ecology, sociology, traffic control, economy, etc.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
* High-performance computing in computational science:
intra-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research applications
* Complex systems modelling and simulation
* Cellular Automata, Genetic Algorithms, Neural networks, Swarm
Intelligence implementations
* Integrated approach to optimization and simulation
* MPI, OpenMP, GPGPU applications in Computational Science
* Optimization algorithms, modelling techniques related to
optimization in Computational Science
* High-performance Software developed to solve science (e.g.,
biological, physical, and social), engineering, medicine, and
humanities problems
* Hardware approaches of high performance computing in modeling and simulation.

Submission guidelines
Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages
in the IEEE Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column,
10pt). Double-bind review: the first page of the paper should contain
only the title and abstract; in the reference list, references to the
authors’ own work should appear as "omitted for blind review" entries.

Manuscript submission Publication
Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society in the same
volume of the main track. Authors of accepted papers are expected to
register and present their papers at the Conference. Conference
proceedings will be indexed, among others, by IEEE explore, DBLP,
Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.

Moreover, organizers of the HPCMS session are planning a Special Issue
of an important international ISI Journal, based on distinguished papers that will be accepted for the session.

Important Dates
Paper submission: 31st Aug 2013
Acceptance notification: 7th Oct 2013
Camera ready due: 31st Oct 2013
HPCMS Session and Conference: 12th - 14th Feb 2014
