High Performance Computing Symposium (HPC 2009)

Part of the 2009 Spring Simulation Multiconference (SpringSim'09)

Sponsored by:
The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS)

March 22 - 27, 2009

Doubletree Hotel San Diego-Mission Valley
San Diego, CA

The 2009 Spring Simulation Multiconference will feature High Performance Computing Symposium (HPC 2009). This will be the 17th special symposium devoted to the impact of high performance computing and communications on computer simulations.

Advances in networking, high-end computers, large data stores, and middleware capabilities are ushering in a new era of high-performance parallel and distributed simulations. Along with these new capabilities come new challenges in computing and system modeling. The goal of HPC 2008 is to encourage innovation in high performance computing and communication technologies and to promote synergistic advances in modeling methodologies and simulation. It will promote the exchange of ideas and information between universities, industry, and national laboratories about new developments in system modeling, high performance computing and communication, and scientific computing and simulation. Topics of interest include

  • High Performance/Large Scale Simulation

  • High Performance Applications and Case Studies

  • Distributed and Grid Computing

  • Asynchronous numerical methods.

  • Visualization and Data Management

  • Advanced Simulation Frameworks

  • Problem Solving Environments

  • Parallel Algorithms and Architectures

  • High Performance Software Tools

  • Tools and Environments for Coupling Parallel Codes

  • Component Technologies for High Performance Computing


The symposium proceedings will be published through the ACM on CD-ROM and in the ACM Digital Library.
