The 21st annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing (HiPC 2014) will be held at the Hotel Cidade De Goa in Goa, India, during December 17-December 20, 2014. It will serve as a forum for researchers from around the world to present their current research efforts and findings, and will act as a venue for stimulating discussions and highlighting high performance computing (HPC) related activities in Asia. The conference has a history of attracting participation from reputed researchers from all over the world.

The main technical program of the conference includes invited keynote speakers and peer reviewed papers, with presentations in plenary sessions on three days of the conference. To complement the main technical program and broaden the technical scope of the conference, others are invited to conduct workshops around special topics and emerging technologies and practices.

This year, a special Indo-US workshop will be conducted on the last day of the conference, .

Indo-US workshop on Virtual Institutes for Computational and Data-Enabled Science & Engineering (CSD&E)

The Indo-US workshop on Virtual Institutes for Computational and Data-Enabled Science & Engineering (CDS&E) will be held in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing (HiPC) on December 20 in Goa.

Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (CDS&E) is clearly recognizable as a distinct intellectual and technological discipline lying at the intersection of applied mathematics, statistics, computer science, core science and engineering disciplines. It is dedicated to research, development and utilization of computational methods to enable scientific discovery and innovation. All areas of science are quickly becoming data dominated, and new collaborations and investments between the US and India are needed to foster new innovations. The objective of the workshop is to provide opportunities for meaningful interactions between the US and Indian researchers on mutual areas of interests towards potential short and long-term collaborations.

The workshop will have four sessions related to different application and computer systems areas in computational science and data engineering. Each session corresponding to an area will consist of one talk each from a US and Indian researcher in the area. The four sessions are:

  1. Turbulence and plasmas
  2. Runtime Systems for Multi and Many-core Systems
  3. Radio Astrophysics and BigData
  4. Scientific Visualization
