In this video from PASC19 in Zurich, Mike Heroux from Sandia National Labs shares the reasons he attends the conference every year. As a multi-disciplinary show, PASC gives him the opportunity to keep up with the international science community.

PASC19 is the sixth 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. PASC19 is co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the PASC structuring project. The conference is managed by the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS). The local host of PASC19 is ETH Zurich, one of the two Federal Institutes of Technology in Switzerland coordinated by swissuniversities.

Michael Heroux is a senior scientist at Sandia National Laboratories and a scientist in residence at St. John’s University. His research interests include all aspects of scalable scientific and engineering software for new and emerging parallel computing architectures. He leads several projects in this field, including Trilinos (a 2004 R&D 100 winner), Mantevo (a 2013 R&D 100 winner), and HPCG (an official TOP500 benchmark for ranking computer systems). Mike also leads the IDEAS project, dedicated to engaging scientific software teams to identify and adopt practices that improve productivity and sustainability. He is a distinguished member of the Association for Computing Machinery and a member of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. He has served on the editorial staff for ACM Transactions on Mathematical SoftwareJournal on Parallel and Distributed Computing, and SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing.

PASC20 takes place June 29 to July 1, 2020 in Geneva, Switzerland.
