The 6th European Seminar on Computing ESCO 2018 took place from 3 to 8 June 2018 in Pilsen in the conference halls of the Pilsen brewery. The main topic was focused on exascal computing on large computing clusters.
The conference was organized by prof. Pavel Šolín from NClab (United States) in cooperation with the Department of Theoretical Electrical Engineering of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen. This year's edition was attended by almost 200 scientists and students from various disciplines. Key areas of interest in the conference included computational trends in electromagnetism, structural mechanics, quantum physics or chemistry, numerical models of multiphysical problems, cloud and GPU calculations.
During the conference, it was possible to see world-famous speakers such as Tzanio Kolev (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, U.S.A.), Rob Neely (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, U.S.A.), Krzysztof Podgórski (Lund University, Lund, Sweden), John Whiteman (Brunel University, London, United Kingdom) or Barbara Wohlmuth (Technical University of Munich, Germany).
Part of the conference was the award for the best paper "Best paper award", which was awarded to Jan Nikl of the Institute of Physics AV ELI Beamlines, Miklos Kuczmann of Széchenyi István University in Győr and Karel Pavlíček from KTE FEE at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen. Selected papers will be published in prestigious scientific journals with an impact factor.
The main program sections were complemented by interesting workshops and a poster section. The conference included a social networking program, so participants could see for example a fire show or a Gothic knight show.
