Subject: Deadline Extnded, PDSEC-23, USA, May 2023

The 24th IEEE International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed
Scientific and Engineering Computing (PDSEC-23)
( will be held on May 19, 2023 in
St. Petersburg, Florida in conjunction with IPDPS 2023.

Deadline: PDSEC-23 deadline: 12 Feb 2023 (AoE)

Scope and Interests: The technological trends in HPC system evolution
indicates an increasing burden placed on application developers due to
the management of the unprecedented complexity levels of hardware and
its associated performance characteristics. Many existing scientific
applications codes are unlikely to perform well on future systems
without major modifications or even complete rewrites. In the future,
it will be necessary to utilize, in concert, many characteristics such
as multiple levels of parallelism, many lightweight cores, complex
memory hierarchies, novel I/O technology, power capping, system-wide
temporal/spatial performance heterogeneity and reliability concerns.
The parallel and distributed computing (PDC) community has developed
new programming models, algorithms, libraries and tools to meet these
challenges in order to accommodate productive code development and
effective system use. However, the scientific application community
still needs to identify the benefit through practical evaluations.

Thus, the focus of this workshop is on methodologies and experiences
used in scientific and engineering applications and algorithms to
achieve sustainable code development for better productivity,
application performance and reliability. In particular, we will focus
on the following topics in parallel and distributed scientific and
engineering applications, and not limited to: Big scientific data;
Performance modeling and simulation for the execution of scalable
scientific applications on new heterogeneous architectures; Graph
analytics with their (scientific) applications; Code modernization
methodologies and experiences for adapting the changes in future
computing systems; Languages for scientific computing on hybrid
systems (e.g. Python, MPI+X where X is OpenMP, OpenCL, CUDA etc.);
Tools and techniques for improving the performance, reliability and
resilience of scientific applications; Use cases of enterprise
distributed computing technology (such as MapReduce, Data Analytics
and Machine-learning tools) in scientific and engineering
applications; Scalable parallel and distributed algorithms supporting
science and engineering applications; Performance portability across
heterogeneous architecture.

Subject: REU Site, Big Data with HPC, UMBC, ONLINE, Jun-Jul 2023

Please forward to interested undergraduate students!

We are organizing an NSF-funded REU (Research Experience for
Undergraduates) Site program at UMBC: Online Interdisciplinary Big
Data Analytics in Science and Engineering. It is a purely online
program open to students from the entire nation. The 8-week program
will include training in fundamentals of HPC software (MPI) and
productivity tools (SLURM) on large distributed-memory clusters with
CPUs and GPUs as well as Big Data Analytics applications like
Tensorflow, Keras, and Horovod. Each student will be paid for $5,000
for participation and provided with opportunities to present their
work at conferences. We are looking for students from all STEM
disciplines and particularly also for students who are interested in
gaining Big Data, HPC, and application experience.

More information of the program can be found at and the flyer there. The application
deadline is 03/01/2023. The two project topics planned for summer 2023
are 1) Big Data and Machine Learning Techniques for Earth Remote
Sensing and 2) Big Data and Machine Learning Techniques for Medical
Image Classification. Both projects are in collaboration with
researchers outside of the program for interdisciplinary
experience. Each student team will publish a technical report in the
HPCF Tech. Rep. series. Every past team in 2021 and 2022 has
additionally published at least a conference paper.

Please distribute this opportunity to undergraduate students and
additional colleagues/communities you see fit. Thank you very much
for your help! Matthias Gobbert ( and Jianwu Wang

Subject: PhD Position, Mathematics, University of Oslo, Norway

A position as PhD Research Fellow in Mathematics is available at the
Department of Mathematics, University of Oslo.

Starting date no later than October 1, 2023.

The fellowship period is 3 years. A fourth year may be considered with
a workload of 25 % that may consist of teaching, supervision duties,
and/or research assistance. This is dependent upon the qualification
of the applicant and the current needs of the department.

The candidate will work on development and analysis of efficient
numerical methods for rough and/or stochastic differential
equations. This can for instance involve the construction of adaptive
time-stepping and high order numerical methods, where the suitable
approach may depend on the driving noise in complicated
ways. Stochastic processes appear in many filtering problems, such as
the Kalman-Bucy filter, and another possible direction will be to
develop and study theoretical properties of ensemble- based filtering
methods for nonlinear filtering problems.
