    The Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) Conference is an interdisciplinary conference in high performance computing organized by the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) that brings together domain science, applied mathematics and computer science - where computer science is focused on enabling the realization of scientific computation. PASC18, the fifth annual PASC Conference, is co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the PASC structuring project. It is held from July 2 to 4, 2018 at the Congress Center Basel in Basel, Switzerland.

  • CECAM/Psi-k School - Path Integral Quantum Mechanics: From the Basics to the Latest Developments

    Jun 25, 2018, 9:00 until Jun 29, 2018, 17:00, CECAM HQ in Lausanne, Switzerland

    As with all CECAM events, there are no conference fees, but it is essential that students apply soon, as only a limited number of seats can be offered. Due to generous funding from CECAM, Psi-k, and MARVEL, organizers will be able to provide partial funding to cover travel or accommodation to some participants. Review of applications for funding will begin on March 2nd, 2018 and will continue until all funding has been allocated.

  • Computational Chemistry meets Artificial Intelligence

    Jun 13, 2018, 8:30 until Jun 15, 2018, 16:30, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland

    The main goal of the Computational Chemistry meets Artificial Intelligence (CC2AI) conference is to bring together research groups from biomolecular simulations and ab-initio computations with those from machine learning and evolutionary/stochastic optimisation to further encourage the development of these fields.

  • Open Databases Integration for Materials Design Workshop

    Jun 11, 2018, 14:00 until Jun 15, 2018, 14:00, CECAM, Lausanne

    The organizers of this CECAM workshop propose to gather all the key developers involved in the different efforts, both in Europe and in the US, of creating large databases (DBs) containing the calculated properties of existing and hypothetical materials obtained by high-throughput (HT) ab initio computations. The workshop obviously include some oral presentations about the different DBs and their latest capabilities. But, the largest fraction of the time is dedicated to more technical presentations and discussions about the first implementations of the common API. The organizers also propose to leave more than a full day for a coding party continuing to implement the common API.
