Abstract Submission

We ask that you prepare your abstract using one of our templates for Word or LaTex, which you can download here. Abstract length is limited to a maximum full page in A5 format, short references and no images.

To submit your abstract, you first need to register and create an user account. Only then you will be able to proceed with the abstract submission. Please click the red box "Submit a paper", as shown in the image below. You can submit more than one abstract.

Due to time constraints, oral presentations are reserved for invited speakers and for only a few contributed submissions. All other contributions will be accepted as poster presentations. We will notify you if your submission is chosen for an oral presentation. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to your participation.

The deadline for abstract submission is April 17th.

Workshop on HPC at the University in Mainz

There will be a pre-conference workshop the day before the conference starts, especially designed for students, on the use of high-performance computing using the programming language Julia. The workshop will include lectures and hands-on exercises and will be taught by L. Räss (ETH Zurich) and B. Kaus (JGU Mainz); a computer is thus required. The workshop will take place on the campus of the Johannes Gutenberg University.

Due to the limited number of participants, we can only accept 50 participants. Spots will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. We will inform participants after the registration is closed.

In order to register for the workshop, you first need to make the selections for the conference in the "Conference Participation" box, click "Select", then make the selection on the workshop box, and click "Select". At the bottom you will see a gray box with the number of selected offers (it should be 2), which you can click and confirm your selections. To finalize the registration, click on "Confirm selection and continue".
