Vivien Kendon from Durham University to Keynote PASC20 in Geneva

Today the PASC20 conference announced that Vivien Kendon from Durham University will deliver a keynote talk on quantum computing. With a theme of New Challenges, New Computing Paradigms, the event takes place June 29 – July 1 in Geneva, Switzerland. “Quantum computing promises more efficient computation for some important types of problems, such as simulation of quantum systems, non-convex optimization, and (famously) factoring large semi-primes. However, the first useful quantum computers will be limited in what they can do. Applying them to bottlenecks that are hard for classical computers is key to extracting the best performance out of combined classical and quantum hardware.”

Call for Submissions: PASC20 in Geneva

The PASC20 conference has issued its Call for Submissions. The event takes place June 29 – July 1, 2020 in Geneva, Switzerland. “PASC20 is an international and interdisciplinary 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.”

Why PASC19 is a great show for the International Science Community

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 Evolves into an International Conference on Computational Science

In this video from PASC19, Torsten Hoefler from ETH Zurich describes how PASC19 has grown into an international conference with over 60 percent of attendees from outside Switzerland. After that, he describes a new groundbreaking programming model his team is developing that centers around the minimization of data movement for computation.
