PASC22 – Registration is Open. View the Program and Opportunities for Student Volunteers


The PASC22 Organizing Team is pleased to announce the publication of the PASC22 program and opening of registration. We would also like to remind you that applications are still open for the PASC22 Student Volunteer Program and that students selected as volunteers will be granted complimentary registration.

We look forward to welcoming you to Basel from June 27 to 29, 2022!


After a two-year forced break, we are excited to welcome as many of you as possible in person at the Congress Center Basel, in Basel, Switzerland, from June 27 to 29, 2022.We look forward to fruitful discussions while enjoying coffees and lunches together, and we’ve planned two optional evening dinner events for further networking and socializing.

While in-person participation at the conference is preferred, we understand that travel restrictions and personal circumstances might limit the ability of some attendees to join us in Basel. The technical program also offers participation opportunities for remote attendees.

The PASC22 conference is dedicated to advances in computing for tackling some of the biggest challenges facing humanity today: climate, pandemic and inequality. As an interdisciplinary conference, PASC22 provides an ideal platform to discuss advances in these and other high-impact areas – thereby leveraging our collective expertise in computational and data science at the service of our global community.

The program offers five keynote lectures, an interdisciplinary dialogue, over 170 talks in more than 40 minisymposium sessions; poster sessions; and 17 full research paper presentations which will be published in the Proceedings of the PASC Conference and accessible via the ACM Digital Library.

In line with this year’s challenge “Computing and Data ….For All Humankind” the event program highlights include keynotes by Pier Luigi Vidale (University of Reading) on the state-of-the-art in climate research towards global storm-resolving climate models, Olivia Keiser (Institute of Global Health, University of Geneva), who will help us navigate the domain of epidemic diseases and the possibilities and challenges of epidemiology today, and Sheperd Doeleman (Harvard University), who will talk about the possibility to acquire direct imaging of supermassive black holes with the Event Horizon Telescope. We will discuss how data science can be used to increase social equality in a dialogue that features Cornell University Professor Emma Pierson, who develops data science and machine learning methods to study inequality and healthcare, and Professor Michael Hengartner, who is President of ETH Board.

The PASC22 program is available here.


PASC22 will be held in two months, and we would like to invite you to register for the conference. In order to take advantage of early-bird registration rates, please do so by May 15, 2022.

We look forward to welcoming you to the picturesque city of Basel – hopefully in person, or digitally if you are limited by travel restrictions or personal circumstances – located in the border triangle of France, Germany and Switzerland.

Basel is also the oldest university city in Switzerland (550 years) and one of Europe’s leading teaching and research locations for the life sciences and medical research, as well as energy and cultural sciences.

Information on the current regulations in Switzerland with respect to COVID-19, and on the design of the conference for in-person participants is available here.
