Information for Authors and Submission

Please submit your two-page paper by May 15, 2017. LaTeX format is strongly preferred. LaTeX and Word templates are available here. All necessary information is listed in the template file.

CEM’17 international workshop is a friendly platform to discuss recent progress in all areas related to computing, electromagnetics, computational science and engineering (CSE), multi-physics problems, high-performance computing (HPC), and parallel computing. Since 2007, CEM experts and enthusiasts have been meeting biennially to exchange ideas and knowledge. On its 10-year anniversary, CEM’17 will be held in the fabulous Mediterranean city of Barcelona. CEM’17 is supplemented with a strong social program, creating a hospitable environment in Barcelona’s rich cultural and historical background.

Details of the workshop, such as travel, hotel, and social program, will be announced here as they become available.

Workshop dates: June 21-24, 2017

Please note that CEM’17 dates are immediately preceding the dates of PUMPS’17 that will be organized on June 26-30, 2017. PUMPS stands for the Programming and Tuning Massively Parallel Systems summer school that has been organized annually since 2010 in Barcelona. For more information, please see: Some CEM’17 attendees may see this as a “two birds with one stone” opportunity and they may benefit by participating in PUMPS’17, in addition to submitting a paper to CEM’17.
