First Symposium on High Performance Computing for Weather, Water, and Climate
The theme for the 2015 AMS Annual Meeting is “Fulfilling the Vision of Weather, Water, and Climate Information for Every Need, Time, and Place”. People, businesses, and governments depend increasingly on weather, water, and climate information matched to their specific needs. We are converging on a day when such information is integrated into nearly every decision or action people take. This revolution in highly targeted, customized information - delivered when and where it is most useful - will make our lives safer, more productive, and more enjoyable. The challenge for our community is this: collaborate and innovate to develop – and ultimately deliver – actionable, user-specific weather, water, and climate information across all spatial and temporal scales in support of our nation’s safety, health, and prosperity. The meeting will explore the many topics required for our community to implement this vision.
For this symposium, we seek papers focused on computational science aspects of HPC use to deliver more accurate information on weather, water, and climate to users. Topics such as tuning codes for HPC improvement, conversion of code to take full advantage of Phi or GPGPU capabilities, and visualization/access of large data volumes are encouraged.
