Dear WSSSPE Community,

We are organizing a minisymposterium (thematic poster group) submission on
     Software Productivity and Sustainability for CSE and Data Science
(see abstract below) to the SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE17), which will be held during Feb 27 - March 3, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia, see http://www.siam.org/meetings/cse17/.

We welcome poster presentation submissions as part of this thematic poster group.  Please let us know by Wednesday, August 17 if you are interested in submitting a poster as part of this session.  If so, respond to us by email with a draft title of your poster and a sentence or two about your area of work.  We will then follow up with instructions for you to submit a poster abstract (1,500 characters maximum) to the CSE17 conference system (and also to us by email); our goal is to collect all abstracts by Wednesday, August 24.  Unfortunately, SIAM does not provide travel support for poster presenters.  Note that CSE17 conference guidelines allow an individual to present a poster in addition to a talk, provided that the talk and poster are on different results.

All posters in the thematic poster group will be co-located in the poster viewing area, which will provide a rich environment for informal exchange of ideas on software productivity and sustainability issues.   The following is a video clip of the overall CSE15 poster sessions:

If you are working on issues in software productivity and sustainability for CSE and data science, please consider submitting a poster to CSE17 as part of this minisymposterium.  We would be glad to address any questions you may have.



Minisymposterium: Software Productivity and Sustainability for CSE and Data Science

Software is the key crosscutting technology that connects advances in mathematics, computer science, and domain-specific science and engineering to achieve robust simulations and analysis for predictive science, engineering, and other research fields.  While software is becoming more complex due to multiphysics and multiscale modeling, the coupling of data analytics, and disruptive changes in computer hardware (due to increases in typical system scale and heterogeneity, including GPUs and additional alternative architectures), software itself has not traditionally received focused attention in the CSE community or been rewarded by that community.  The speakers in this minisymposterium will discuss work that addresses growing technical and social challenges in software productivity, quality, and sustainability, and thereby is helping software to fulfill its critical role as a cornerstone of long-term CSE collaboration.

Subject: [SIAM-CSE] SIAM CSE17 Call for Participation: minisymposia proposals due Aug 1, abstracts for posters/presentations due Aug 29.

SIAM Conference on Computational Science (SIAM CSE’17)
Location: Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Dates: February 27-March 3, 2017

The call for participation for this conference is now available. Please visit http://www.siam.org/meetings/cse17 for more information.

August 1, 2016: Minisymposium proposals
August 29, 2016: Abstracts for contributed and mini symposium speakers
August 29, 2016: Abstracts for contributed posters and minisymposterium posters (thematic groups)

August 19, 2016: SIAM Student Travel Award and Post-doc/Early Career Travel Award Applications

Detailed guidelines for the preparation of abstract, minisymposia and poster submissions are available at http://www.siam.org/meetings/cse17/submissions.php

We especially encourage submissions of posters to CSE17, where we will have expanded poster sessions, including demos and thematic groups of posters (or poster minisymposia), as well as poster prizes.  CSE17 poster sessions will be great opportunities for networking and interacting in depth about research topics.  More details are below and on the call for participation.
