  • Prof. Chris Johnson (Scientific Computing and Imaging, Institute, University of Utah, USA) who will give the PASC16 Public Lecture on the emerging topic of data science and visual analytics
  • Dr. Dave Nichols (Schlumberger Limited, Houston, USA), a leading industrial expert on large scale computation in seismic exploration
  • Prof. Chris J. Pickard (Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, UK) on random explorations of material structure space
  • Prof. Paul Woodward (University of Minnesota, USA) on simulations of convection, turbulence, and combustion in stellar interiors on many-core computing devices
  • Prof. Marc Snir (Argonne National Laboratory and University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign, USA) on programming models for Exascale

PASC16 takes place June 8-10, 2016 in Lausanne, Switzerland.
