HPCMS 2018: The 2nd International Workshop on High Performance Computing for Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Nuclear Energy and Environmental Science in conjunction with the 32nd ACM International Conference on Supercomputing (ICS 2018)

Description

 High-performance computinghas been applied to accelerate advanced modeling andsimulation(M&S) in many different fieldsof engineering, such as virtual reactors, hydrology, meteorology, to solvemulti-physical problems. The multi-physics simulations, as somecombination of physical models and exascale heterogeneous supercomputers, have proposed significant challenges in recent years.For example, materials simulation in nuclear reactors is required tocombine materials modeling methods, mathematical models andparallel algorithmsin order to make the best use ofthe supercomputers of the present and future. Theworkshop focused on innovative mathematical modeling, parallelalgorithms, high-performance computing tools and virtualization. It aimed at bringing together differentresearchers from, such as applied mathematics, computer science, materials science, hydrology, etc., to discuss the interdisciplinaryissue of multi-physics modeling methods and parallel algorithms by which the simulation and optimization onhigh-performance computing systems can be achieved.
