The 11th International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed
Scientific and Engineering Computing (PDSEC-10)

April 23, 2010, Atlanta, USA

to be held in conjunction with IPDPS 2010

Scope and Interests:

The field of high performance computing has earned prominence through advances
in electronic and integrated technologies. Current times are very exciting and
the years to come will witness a proliferation in the use of parallel and
distributed systems. The scientific and engineering application domains have a
key role in shaping future research and development activities in academia and
industry, especially when the solution of large and complex problems must cope
with tight timing schedules.
This annual workshop brings together researchers from computer science,
applied mathematics and other application areas of high-performance computing
to present, discuss and exchange ideas, results, work in progress and experiences
in the area of parallel and distributed computing for problems in science and
engineering applications and inter-disciplinary applications.

Main topics of interest include:

* Development of advanced parallel and distributed methods,
* parallel and distributed computing techniques and codes,
* practical experiences using various parallel and distributed systems
and software platforms such as MPI, PVM, OpenMP, UPC, mpC etc.,
* domain decomposition,
* loop and task parallelism,
* scheduling and load balancing,
* compiler, hardware and OS issues for scientific and engineering computing,
* memory system and I/O supports for scientific and engineering computing,
* hardware/software support for performance, power and energy-aware applications,
* network, mobile/wireless processing and computing,
* performance modeling and evaluation of scientific and engineering computing,
* cluster and grid scientific and engineering computing,
* biologically inspired algorithms in system modeling, design and applications.
* applications in, e.g., the following areas:
+ computational fluid dynamics and mechanics
+ material sciences
+ space, weather, climate systems and global changes
+ computational environment and energy systems
+ computational ocean and earth sciences
+ combustion system simulation
+ computational chemistry
+ computational physics
+ bioinformatics and computational biology
+ medical applications
+ transportation systems simulations
+ combinatorial and global optimization problems
+ structural engineering
+ computational electro-magnetic
+ computer graphics
+ virtual reality and multimedia
+ semiconductor technology, and electronic circuits and system design
+ dynamic systems
+ computational finance
+ data mining
+ signal and image processing

Submission Information:

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original
unpublished research. Submitted papers should have at most 20 pages
in either PS or PDF format, with 5-10 keywords. The submission is
via an online submission system, see the workshop website for
details. Program Committee members and external reviewers will provide
at least three reviews to the authors. Papers will be ranked for relevance
to the workshop and technical merit. Accepted papers with at most 8 pages
will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press as IPDPS-09 workshop
proceedings. Selected best papers will be considered for a special issue
of an international journal.
