PASC22 New Year Updates, Opportunities & Important Dates

New Year wishes

We hope that you and your loved ones enjoyed a peaceful and happy holiday time and wish you good health and a joyful New Year ahead! 

We are ready to sail off towards our destination and look forward to keeping you company as we navigate this 2022 with renewed energy, and to welcome you in Basel in the summer!

Student Travel Grants offered by SIGHPC

We are pleased to start the year with some festive cheer: SIGHPC will continue to support four travel grants to enable undergraduate or graduate students to attend the event. PASC22 will cover the corresponding registration fees.

Applications close April 10, 2022. Further information on the application process is available here.

Upcoming deadline for poster submissions (by January 19)

PASC22 would like to remind you that you still have a few days to submit your poster contributions.

PASC22 brings together researchers from different disciplines to learn about each other’s scientific computing methods, tools and results, to inspire new ideas and build new interdisciplinary collaborations.

Poster presentations provide an ideal opportunity for the exchange of ideas and expertise within and between the various computational science domains represented at the conference.

Poster submissions should describe topical research related to scientific computing in the following domains:

  • Chemistry and Materials
  • Climate, Weather and Earth Sciences (incl. Solid Earth Dynamics)
  • Computer Science and Applied Mathematics
  • Engineering (incl. but not limited to CFD, computational mechanics, computational engineering materials, turbulent flow, …)
  • Humanities and Social Sciences (incl. but not limited to behavioral, economic, legal, political and business sciences, philosophy, languages and the arts)
  • Life Sciences (incl. but not limited to biophysics, genomics, bioinformatics, systems biology, neuroscience and computational biology, …)
  • Physics (incl. but not limited to astrophysics, cosmology, plasma modelling, QCD)

Posters that address aspects emphasizing the Challenge of PASC22 – “Computing and Data… for all Humankind” – and the affiliated topics “Computing for Planet Earth,” “Data Science and Inequality,” and “Epidemiology and Public Health” are particularly welcome.  Authors whose posters are selected for presentation at PASC22 will be given the possibility to “pitch” their posters to the conference audience in a rapid-fire flash session before the scheduled poster session. Posters with the most stimulating content will be recognized in an award ceremony on the final day of the conference.

Please check the Guidelines for Posters for further information.


  • 19 January 2022: Deadline for posters abstracts
  • 08 March 2022: Decision notifications
  • 01 May 2022: Deadline for submission of poster image (PDF)

In-person participation is preferred and encouraged whenever possible. Poster presenters who do not attend in-person may not be able to present their work during the poster session that is part of the three-day program. The work will be instead displayed in a digital poster exhibition. Further details on the conference format can be found at the following page.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!

Conference format: hybrid

As we navigate the many news related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to hope that in the end of Junewe will finally be able to welcome most PASC22 participants in person at the Congress Center Basel, in Basel, Switzerland, and we are discussing the infrastructure to ensure that all health regulations are met in view of mitigating the risks of a contamination and creating a relaxing environment for attendees.

In-person participation at the conference is preferred and encouraged; however, we understand that travel restrictions and personal circumstances might limit the ability of some attendees to join us in Basel, and will thus offer also participation opportunities for digital attendees.

Further information on the plans for the PASC22 Conference format in the current COVID-19 situation is available on the conference website at the following page.

Sponsorship packages available for PASC22

The PASC22 Organizing Team is pleased to invite organizations from industry and academia to take advantage of a range of sponsorship opportunities for PASC22 that are suitable for a hybrid format of the event.

PASC22 – to be held at the Congress Center Basel, Switzerland, from June 27 to 29, 2022 – offers a great chance for organizations to gain visibility at an international level, to network with key leaders in the fields of HPC, simulation and data science, and to showcase research and development.

Kindly contact the Organizing Committee at to secure your sponsorship package!

Sponsorships will support event format

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the organizations who already confirmed their sponsorship for PASC22. Their generous support will help us develop and strengthen our digitalization capabilities, as well as supporting the implementation of the health protection plan for the in-person format.
