Special Session at 17th EuroMPI Users' Group Meeting 2010

Current Trends in Numerical Simulation for
Parallel Engineering Environments
New Directions and Work-in-Progress

September 13th - 15th, Stuttgart, Germany

Call for Papers in ASCII.


In today's world, the use of parallel programming and architectures is essential for simulating practical problems in engineering and related disciplines. Remarkable progress in CPU architecture (multi- and manycore, SMT, transactional memory, virtualization support, etc.), system scalability, and interconnect technology continues to provide new opportunities, as well as new challenges for both system architects and software developers. These trends go along with progress in parallel algorithms, simulation techniques, and software integration from multiple disciplines.

This 9th special session is intended to provide a discussion forum for scientists from both application disciplines and computer science in order to foster closer cooperations. In contrast to traditional conferences, emphasis is put on the presentation of up-to-date results with a short turn-around time, which can also include the presentation of work-in-progress with only partial results available at the time of submission. Authors are also encouraged to present new projects and/or ideas.

Since its successful introduction in 2002, ParSim has established itself as an integral part of the Euro(PVM/)MPI conference series. Euro(PVM/)MPI, with its long tradition as one of the European prime events in parallel computation, serves as an ideal host for ParSim and will thus enable participants to present and discuss their work within the scope of both ParSim and EuroMPI.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Papers describing practical and/or industry experience are especially encouraged.

Author instructions:

Authors are invited to submit full papers with at most 8 pages (PDF format in LNCS style as described on the conference web site). Submissions should illustrate new and innovative directions in the area of parallel simulation techniques in engineering environments.

To submit a paper, send your PDF file directly to Carsten Trinitis, Michael Bader and Martin Schulz .

Accepted papers will be published in the EuroMPI proceedings and can be up to 8 pages long. Accepted contributions are expected to be presented by one of the authors at ParSim2010, and participants must register for EuroMPI at
