Call for Papers

Workshop Python for High Performance and Scientific Computing (PyHPC 2012)

November 16, 2012, Salt Lake City, USA

in conjunction with the International Conference for High Performance
Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC12)

Python is a high-level programming language with a growing community
in academia and industry. It is a general-purpose language adopted by
many scientific applications such as computational fluid dynamics, bio
molecular simulation, artificial intelligence, statistics and data
analysis, 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 will bring 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 applications
from mathematics, science, and engineering, 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

                * High performance computing with Python
                * Performance analysis, profiling, and debugging of Python code
                * System administration using Python
                * Integration with other programming languages
                * Python applications in mathematics, science, and engineering
                * Scientific visualization
                * Problem solving environments
                * Education in scientific computing

We invite you to submit a paper of up to 10 pages via the submission
site (
All papers will be published published as a part of the SC 2012 digital
proceedings.  These are IEEE digital library proceedings that will be
available online. The 10-page limit includes figures, tables, and
appendices, but does not include references, for which there is no page
limit.  The formatting instructions are available here:
