7th Workshop on Python for High-Performance and Scientific Computing

November 12, 2017, Denver, CO, USA

In cooperation with SIGHPC

Held in conjunction with SC17: The International Conference on High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis


The high-level programming language Python is well established with a large community in academia and industry. It is a general-purpose language adopted by many scientific applications. Examples are computational fluid dynamics, bio molecular simulation, machine learning, finance, or scientific visualization. Scientists, engineers, and educators use Python for data science, high-performance computing, and distributed computing. Traditionally, system administrators use Python for system management and automating administration tasks. Python is extremely easy to learn due to its very clean syntax and great readability. Therefore developers love Python as it facilitates writing sustainable and maintainable software systems. For the same reasons, Python is well suited for education at all levels.

The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners using Python in all aspects of high performance and scientific computing. The goal is to present Python applications from mathematics, science, and engineering, to discuss general topics regarding the use of Python, and to share experiences using Python in scientific computing education.

The overarching theme of the workshop is productivity vs. performance in HPC and scientific programming. While Python is extremely strong in supporting human productivity as well reproducible science, it still lacks in computational performance compared to ‘traditional’ HPC languages such as Fortran or C. For the workshop, we encourage authors to submit novel research in improving performance of Python applications as well as research on productivity of development with Python.


Please submit papers related to Python usage in any of the following topics and application areas as well as on broader topics in business, science, technology, engineering, or education:

  • Big Data and Data Science with Python
  • Hybrid programming and integration with other programming languages
  • Comparison of Python with other dynamic languages for HPC
  • Python for multi-core processors and quantum computers
  • Interactive HPC applications using Jupyter
  • High performance computing applications with Python
  • Performance analysis, profiling, and debugging of Python code
  • Administration of large HPC systems with Python
  • Scientific and interactive visualization with Python
  • Problem solving environments and frameworks
  • Diversity and education in HPC and scientific computing


We invite you to submit a paper of up to 10 pages via the submission site:
