Workshop Python for High Performance and Scientific Computing

June 1-3, 2011, Tsukuba, Japan

part of The International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2011)


Call for Papers

Python is an accepted high-level programming language with a growing
community in academia and industry. Beside its original use as a
scripting language for web applications, today Python is a
general-purpose language adopted by many scientific applications like
CFD, bio molecular simulation, AI, scientific visualization etc. More
and more industrial domains are turning towards it as well, such as
robotics, semiconductor manufacturing, automotive solutions,
telecommunication, computer graphics, and games. In all fields, the
use of Python for scientific, high performance parallel, and
distributed computing, as well as general scripted automation is
increasing. Moreover, Python is well-suited for education in
scientific computing.

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners
from industry and academia using Python for all aspects of high
performance and scientific computing. The goal is to present
Python-based scientific applications and libraries, to discuss general
topics regarding the use of Python (such as language design and
performance issues), and to share experience using Python in
scientific computing education.

    * Python-based scientific applications and libraries
    * High performance computing
    * Parallel Python-based programming languages
    * Scientific visualization
    * Scientific computing education
    * Python performance and language issues
    * Problem solving environments with Python
    * Performance analysis tools for Python application
