SIDIS 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 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.

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