PASC21 Event Format and Papers Program

PASC21 is going fully digital

Unfortunately, given the current epidemiologic situation, we have decided to host the PASC21 Conference in a fully digital format.

We are currently in the process of finalizing the program for the conference and, in order to allow more international participants to follow the event live, we decided to shorten the daily programmatic offering and lengthen the event to five days. We look forward to welcoming you to the first PASC Digital Conference to be held from July 5 to 9, 2021.

During this week, we are preparing to bring Geneva into your homes between 11:00 and 19:00 (Central European Time) with an inspiring HPC program composed of keynote presentations, papers, minisymposia, posters, a dialogueand a panel featuring interdisciplinary experts from all over the world.

A full program of the conference will be published mid-May. Registration will open in the beginning of May.

Papers to be presented at PASC21

As an anticipation of the rich program, we are delighted to announce that the following papers have been accepted for PASC21 and will be published in the Proceedings of the PASC Conference. We are looking forward to hosting these talks at PASC21.
