Workshop Python for High Performance and Scientific Computing (PyHPC 2012)

Call for Papers

zum Bild PyHPC2012

Python is a high-level programming language with a growing community in academia and industry. It is a general-purpose language adopted by many scientific applications such as computational fluid dynamics, bio molecular simulation, artificial intelligence, statistics and data analysis, scientific visualization etc. More and more industrial domains are turning towards it as well, such as robotics, semiconductor manufacturing, automotive solutions, telecommunication, computer graphics, and games. In all fields, the use of Python for scientific, high performance parallel, and distributed computing, as well as general scripted automation is increasing. Moreover, Python is well-suited for education in scientific computing.

The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia using Python for all aspects of high performance and scientific computing. The goal is to present Python applications from mathematics, science, and engineering, to discuss general topics regarding the use of Python (such as language design and performance issues), and to share experience using Python in scientific computing education.


  • High performance computing with Python
  • Performance analysis, profiling, and debugging of Python code
  • System administration using Python
  • Integration with other programming languages
  • Python applications in mathematics, science, and engineering
  • Scientific visualization
  • Problem solving environments
  • Education in scientific computing


We invite you to submit a paper of up to 10 pages via the submission site. All papers will be published published as a part of the SC 2012 digital proceedings.  These are IEEE digital library proceedings that will be available online. The 10-page limit includes figures, tables, and appendices, but does not include references, for which there is no page limit.  The formatting instructions are available here:
