First VECPAR in Asia

VECPAR 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 physical phenomena.

VECPAR seeks to engage participants from academia, research laboratories and industry to address pressing issues in computational science resulting from applications of interest to society and hardware innovations.

10th anniversary VECPAR meeting in 2012 is the first one in Asia since 1993. We are very excited because VECPAR 2012 will be held at the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS), where "K computer" is under installation. Although K will start its operation in November 2012, it is already ranked top of the TOP 500 list in June and November of 2011. Its most recent LINPACK performance is 10.51 PFLOPS.
