Inaugural SIDIS Workshop

We are pleased to host the 1st SIDIS Workshop “Accelerator Programming for Data-Intensive Science” from 14th – 17th December 2020!

The Workshop is postponed to 2021.

The exact date will be announced soon.

SIDIS (Software Institute for Data-Intensive Sciences) is a new initiative aiming to connect researchers and engineers in natural science and computer science. With this workshop we want to bring together researchers in natural science and computer science who’s research topic are computer hardware accelerators such as GPUs, FPGAs, etc or are developing code for these platforms.

The venues of the workshop is the CASUS Center for Advanced Systems Understanding and Synagogue Cultural Forum in Görlitz, Germany.


Registration is free and will soon be opened.


The Monday of the workshop is devoted to “drawing a landscape” of initiatives similar to SIDIS and CASUS aiming to bridge computer science and natural science. The remaining days aim to establish collaborations among computer scientists and natural scientists and to come up with concrete proposals for common R&D and software engineering work.


Conference language is English.
