The Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) conference is an interdisciplinary meeting bringing together computer scientists, mathematicians, and domain experts to promote novel techniques and usage of high performance computing for solving diverse scientific problems. The 2018 conference was held in Basel, Switzerland and attracted 400 researchers from 26 countries. UMSL Computer Science graduate student Michael Chan assumed a number of roles at this conference, from presenting his own research to working as a student volunteer. Following the conference, Chan took a well-deserved vacation and hiked the Swiss Alps.
