WFDA 2013 - International Workshop on Fusion Distributed Applications (WFDA 2013)

Date2013-07-01 - 2013-07-05


VenueHelsinki, Finland Finland



Topics/Call fo Papers

Fusion is an outstanding discipline due to its applicability to plasma physics research as well as to other scientific disciplines and industrial plasma uses, the results of which can be derived from the challenges obtained in fusion. This is so because such a research implies the development of new devices and apparatus for studying several phenomena in the field of plasma confinement. In order to improve all these usages, a deep research on the permanent objective of knowing the theoretical background that happens underneath and models the aforementioned phenomena should be added.
Moreover, theoretical modelling and computer simulation are crucial steps in the design of such new large facilities in order to optimise the characteristics that would rule them, as well us in understanding plasma dynamics in all the possible ranges of plasma parameters. For example, the design and construction of ITER, the tokamak to be built in the south of France that is expected to demonstrate the feasibility of commercial fusion, requires intensive simulations of Plasma Physics, the different components and their interaction.
With growing size and complexity of the understanding of theories, modelling and simulation often exceed the computational capabilities of local infrastructures. Parallel and distributed technologies such as Grid, GPGPU, High Performance and Cloud computing represent emerging solutions and promise researchers new scalable computational platforms. Current activities concentrate on utilizing new computing paradigms and infrastructures for the fusion community. As a consequence, this community is one of the more active in scientific computation.
The aim of this workshop is to present the latest efforts in parallel and distributed fusion applications and to bring together physicists and computer scientists. The program committee invites you to contribute to this special session by submitting original papers in one or more of the categories outlined below.
The Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
Grid, GPGPU, HPC and Cloud architectures optimized for physics of plasmas applications
System infrastructure
Parallel algorithms, parallel and large scale applications
Comparison of algorithms
Code optimization
User interfaces
Visualization of large data sets
Data mining
Interactive access
