First AMS Symposium on High Performance Computing: Call for papers!

Call for Papers!

Brian Etherton (GSD) and Gerry Creager (NSSL) are co-chairing the first Symposium on High Performance Computing associated with an AMS Annual Meeting. This grew out of a discussion two years ago with several people, and a subsequent Town Hall at the meeting in Atlanta, this year.


Call for Papers
American Meteorological Society Symposium on
High Performance Computing
Thu Jan 8 2015, Phoenix AZ
Part of the American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting 2015


The American Meteorological Society (AMS) invites submissions for
a 1-day symposium at the AMS 2015 Annual Meeting (Phoenix, AZ,
Thursday January 8, 2015) on High Performance Computing as
applied to the improved prediction of weather, water, and climate.

The call for papers can be found here:

The three AMS boards who are involved this symposium are:

* Environmental Information Processing Technologies (the host)
* Weather and Forecasting / Numerical Weather Prediction
* Probability and Statistics

The focus of this symposium is computational rather than modeling
science, although interesting aspects of the models themselves,
with ties to hardware and infrastructure interaction, are welcome.

Presentations focusing on new hardware, interconnection, data
storage and post-processing systems/paradigms will be especially

Emphasis on how hardware and software developments for HPC will
impact the Weather, Water and Climate prediction enterprises are
of particular interest.

Questions can be directed to me ( or Brian (
