Seminars at the Faculty of Informatics

The Institute of Computational Science (ICS) of the Faculty of Informatics at USI is pleased to announce the Workshop on High Performance Methods in Computational Science that will take place in two sessions on Friday, May 15 and Wednesday, May 27, 2009 at USI Lugano.

The numerical simulation of complex systems as climate or as multiscale phenomena in physics and mechanics is a highly demanding task, which requires sound knowledge from informatics, mathematics, and the respective application area. In this workshop, we consider different approaches for developing high performance methods for advanced simulations in engineering and life sciences. Aiming at efficient and robust solution methods for real world applications, particular emphasis is put on the capability of the methods to be applicable on modern high performance computer systems.

The workshop will explore recent research results in advanced simulation methods for complex systems, multiscale problems, heterogeneous systems and optimization. The goal of the workshop is to present methods and applications in supercomputing to different scientific areas and to stimulate interaction among computer and computational scientists and mathematicians. All interested researchers are welcome to attend the workshop.
