In this video, Florina Ciorba from University of Basel describes the theme of the upcoming PASC18 conference. With a focus on the convergence of Big Data and Computation, the conference takes place from July 2-4, 2018 in Basel, Switzerland.

PASC18 is the fifth edition of the PASC Conference series, an international platform for the exchange of competences in scientific computing and computational science, with a strong focus on methods, tools, algorithms, application challenges, and novel techniques and usage of high performance computing.

Scientific computing is about solving application problems, and there are two major focuses: extreme scaling of computation and deriving knowledge from massive amounts of data. These two aspects are closely coupled: large computations consume and generate massive amounts of data, and processing of big data requires large amounts of computational power, which increasingly depends on parallel computation.

Through its rich and interactive program, PASC18 aims at highlighting the computational approaches that computational scientists and computer scientists employ to address these challenges today and in the future.

For U.S. attendees, keep in mind that PASC18 offers a great opportunity for travel in that it takes place the week after ISC 2018 in Frankfurt. PASC18 has already issued its Call for Participation.
