  Information - GD1 Large-Scale Computing, Computing Environments and Visualization in the Geosciences

Event Information
The last few years have seen very rapid progress being made worldwide in state-of-the-art cyberinfrastructure for high-performance computing (HPC), grid computing and e-science. This new infusion of freshly garnered knowledge and technology is giving geoscientists an enormous boost to address multi-physical phenomena with attendant multiple-scales via large-scale computations and distributed parallel data processing schemes. The objective of this session is to provide a broad forum for the presentation and communication of novel algorithms, up-to-date methods and their implementations in the research fields of mathematical and geo-mechanical descriptions of multi-scale or coupled systems, emerging novel algorithms and formulations for large-scale computing in mantle and lithospheric-mantle coupled dynamics, geodynamo simulations, seismic-wave propagation in 3-D media, rupture dynamics in 3-D, tsunami modelling by means of parallel or distributed data processing, data mining and data assimilation. We also welcome contributions addressing parallel visualization of large data sets, which are too big for desk-top systems, in concert with data grid technology. Any kinds of agent-based modeling, risk modeling, pattern recognition and cluster analysis and their practical applications, including the related developments of verification and validation methodology, will be welcome. Depending on the elicited interests, we will solicit a number of contributions for publication in a multi-media e-book.
