General information

The HPC symposium “Computational Science at Scale (CoSaS)” will take place from September 5-7, 2018 in Erlangen, Germany. This symposium is organized within the scope of the DFG priority programme Software for ExaScale Computing (SPPEXA).

SPPEXA addresses fundamental research on the various aspects of HPC software, which is particularly urgent against the background that we are currently entering the era of ubiquitous massive parallelism.

The objectives are to bring together the projects of SPPEXA that are focussed on large-scale numerical simulation with applications in science and engineering and to be a forum for the exchange of results and ideas in the area of HPC. Another goal is to help increase the visibility of SPPEXA within the international research community.

The program will consist of high-level invited talks and a poster session including a Poster Blitz. We will also provide a Best Poster Award with a monetary prize and a certificate.
