PASC15 Conference provides an opportunity for scientists and practitioners to discuss key issues in the use of High Performance Computing (HPC) in branches of science that require computer modelling and simulations.

The scientific program will offer four invited plenary presentations; one public lecture with Nobel Prize in Economics in 2011 Thomas Sargent; 126 minisymposium presentations, and up to 21 contributed talks; three inter-PASC Networks discussion; one joint plenary session with the satellite conference Frontiers in Computational Physics; a poster session, CSCS User Meeting, and information stands.


Researchers from the academic and from the corporate world are invited to participate and present their research area in the form of minisymposia, contributed talks and/or poster presentations. The active participation of graduate students and Postdocs is strongly encouraged.

PASC15 welcomes submissions in the following scientific fields:

  • Solid Earth Dynamics
  • Climate & Weather
  • Life Sciences
  • Materials
  • Physics
  • Computer Science & Mathematics
  • Engineering
  • Emerging Domains

Abstracts should describe original, interesting, and solid scientific content that is relevant to computational sciences and HPC. Cross-disciplinary approaches are encouraged.

About PASC

The Swiss Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) is a structuring project jointly supported by the Swiss University Conference (SUK) and the Council of Federal Institutes of Technology (ETH Rat). PASC is coordinated by the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) in collaboration with the Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS) of the ETH Zurich, together with the other Swiss universities and the EPFL.

After a successful launch of the PASC conference series in 2014 with a national focus and 250 participants, this year the platform is growing and expanding its horizons on a global scale.
