The 2012 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2012) is an exciting forum that brings together scientists and researchers from academia as well as managers and engineers from industry and government organizations to meet and exchange ideas and recent works on all aspects of high performance computing systems, their design and use, their roles and impact, and their applications, especially in computational sciences and in modeling and simulation of complex systems. The conference will consist of technical sessions: symposia, workshops and special sessions, tutorials, demos, exhibits, doctoral dissertation consortium, and panels. These will present original and fundamental research advances in the subject areas. Topics of interest include all aspects of high performance computing and simulation.
