Call for Papers

Submissions can address experiences using current and emerging HPC capabilities to implement and run applications for hydrological research, numerical weather prediction (NWP) systems, earth system and climate modelling, air quality modelling, academic teaching, development of advanced parallel algorithms, and more. Forward looking submissions are highly desired, especially those utilizing emerging hardware and software technologies such as GPUs, specially designed systems for AI and Big Data exploration, exascale systems, and other new applications. Specific session topics authors might consider submitting works for include:

  • Exploring the Scalability and Parallel Performance of Python on HPC Systems (joint with Python Symposium)
  • Advances in Earth System and Climate Modelling with HPC (joint with Conference on Climate Variability and Change)
  • Hydrological Modelling Systems using HPC (joint with Conference on Hydrology)
  • Artificial Intelligence Enabled by HPC (joint with Conference on Artificial Intelligence)
  • Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling and HPC (joint with Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry)
  • Operational Aspects and Challenges of HPC for Weather, Water, and Climate
  • Distributed Computing in Water, Weather and Climate
  • HPC for Numerical Weather Prediction
  • Industry and Future Directions in HPC that will benefit Weather, Water and Climate Applications
  • Novel, Innovative Computational Techniques for HPC
  • HPC in the Cloud

Additionally, authors are welcomed to submit abstracts which may not fit into any of the sessions specified above to our General Topics category. Abstracts submitted under this general heading will be grouped where possible with submissions on similar topics during the review process. All abstracts must be received by August 3, 2020. We look forward to an excellent conference.

Joint Sessions

  • The Earth Prediction Innovation Center – Enabling a community-based approach to advance NWP (Joint with R2O, EIPT, AI, and Python)
