General Information

VECPAR’10 is a meeting that focuses on High Performance Computing for Computational Science. It provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in branches of science that require computer modeling and simulation to get together and discuss techniques and technologies that can contribute to the effective analysis of complex systems and phenomena. Therefore, the meeting is inherently multidisciplinary, engaging participants from academia, research laboratories and industry.

VECPAR’10, the ninth edition of the VECPAR series of conferences, is organized by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), and will be held at the Sutardja Dai Hall of the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS), University of California, Berkeley, USA.


Program sessions will start with 1-hour invited (plenary) talks, to highlight major accomplishments, trends and technical challenges of Computational Science in selected fields of research. Technical papers will be presented in parallel sessions. Each paper will be allocated 15 minutes for presentation plus 5 minutes for questions. Contributions in poster format will also be accepted. In summary, the goal of VECPAR’10 is to encourage the participation of junior and senior researchers, and create opportunities for exchange of ideas and further collaborations.
