Goal of IHPCES

High-performance computing is mandatory for simulations of complex physical phenomena on Earth. At the cross-road of rapid developments in several domains, geoscientists now see more necessities than ever for interactions between researchers on numerics, software, and hardware. The IHPCES workshop will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art research in high-performance computational earth sciences. Emphasis will be on novel advanced high-performance computational algorithms, formulations and simulations, as well as the related issues for computational environments and infrastructure for development of high-performance computational earth sciences. The workshop facilitates communication between earth scientists, applied mathematicians, computational and computer scientists and presents a unique opportunity for them to exchange advanced knowledge, insights and science discoveries. With the imminent arrival of the exascale era, strong multidisciplinary collaborations between these diverse scientific groups are critical for the successful development of high-performance computational earth sciences applications. Presentations and audience representation from the broad earth sciences community is strongly encouraged. Contributions are solicited in (but not restricted to) the following areas:

    Call for Papers

    Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original, unpublished research and recent developments/theoretical considerations in Computational Earth Sciences and related issues by January 15, 2013. All accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings of ICCS 2013 published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series.
    The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of Procedia Computer Science. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. Please follow the instructions on ICCS 2013 website. PostScript and source versions of your paper must be submitted electronically through the paper submission system of ICCS. Please do not forget to specify the workshop name as "Third International Workshop on Advances in High-Performance Computational Earth Sciences: Applications and Frameworks (IHPCES)" in that submission system. Please note that papers must not exceed 10 pages in length, when typeset using the Procedia format. After the conference, selected papers may be invited for a special issue of some major journals, such as Springer's Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences (LNES).
