Preface to the Special Issue on: "27th International Conference on Parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics"

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


The international Conference on Parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an annual event devoted to the discussion of the latest advances and challenges in the field of high-performance computing for fluid dynamics problems and related multidisciplinary applications. The 27th edition of the conference took place in May 2015 in Montreal, Canada, and was hosted by the CFD Laboratory of the McGill University. The Conference had seven plenary speakers, three parallel sessions and two mini symposia, entitled ‘Enabling Large-Scale Multi-physics Simulations’ and ‘CFD Applications on GPU and Many-Core Architecture’, respectively. A total of 88 research works were presented during the Conference, for a total of 110 participants from both Academia and Industry. Two-thirds of the presentations discussed themes in the area of parallel algorithms and software, GPU computing and peta-scale applications. The remaining one-third addressed the application of parallel solvers to problems in the areas of mechanical and biomedical engineering, turbulent flows, combustion and multi-physics problems. This Special Issue collects a selection of the works presented at the conference. The conference was successful in delivering high-quality talks in terms of scientific relevance and in proposing approaches to address the most modern and (possibly) future demands in the area of high-performance computing and computational engineering.
