The Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) Conference promotes scientific efforts to address key issues in different domains such as Climate and Atmospheric Modelling, Solid Earth Dynamics, Life Sciences across scales, Material Simulations, Plasma Physics, Astrophysics and Computer Science/Mathematics.

The PASC14 conference will be hosted at ETH Zurich in June 2-3, 2014. The conference aims at bringing together all scientists and research groups within these diverse scientific domains to foster interdisciplinary collaborations and to strengthen high-performance computing (HPC) knowledge exchange.

PASC14 invites conference participants to contribute to the meeting by presenting a talk or a poster. The contribution should describe original, interesting, and solid scientific content that is relevant to computational sciences and highperformance computing.
