Submission of Papers:
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and any other related HPCS topics are solicited. Manuscripts submitted should not be under simultaneous consideration by any other conference or venues. Submission should include a completed online web based form (can also include a cover page) with authors' names, affiliations, addresses, fax and phone numbers, and email addresses of all authors. Manuscripts templates are posted on the Author's Info page. Please indicate clearly the corresponding author(s), although all authors are equally responsible for the paper and its content. Include up to 7 keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Electronic submissions to main conference track will be accepted only in PDF format, uploaded to this web site (left menu). Please submit an electronic copy of your full draft manuscript, not to exceed 8 pages in the single-spaced, double-column format, including figures, tables, and references, according to the template posted on the HPCS 2020 web site using the conference web site submission link (Upload: at Additional pages will be charged an additional fee. If accepted, the final camera-ready manuscript will follow the conference format template posted, which will be made available to all authors.

Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, soundness, contributions and significance, timeliness, relevance, flow and clarity of presentation, language and overall quality. Initial selection will be based on full papers. Papers are accepted based on these criteria and not those of the authors or their institutions. Submission implies the firm intent and willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. No withdrawal is permitted after the acceptance decision unless there is reasonable cause as determined by the conference organizers. All accepted papers in the conference and its tracks are required to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings. People with a submission for the purpose of obtaining reviews only will be flagged and reported. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings papers are usually included in the Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services.

The Conference policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a manuscript under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge which that access provides. Contents of manuscripts submitted to the tracks program committees should be regarded as privileged as well and handled in the same manner and standards. The Conference Publications and Program Chairs shall require that all referees adhere to this practice.

For information about the HPCS 2020 conference in general, please contact the conference organizers or consult the conference web site.

Journals Opportunities
Plans are underway to have the best accepted papers be selected for publication in some journal special issue(s). Detailed information will soon be announced, and will be made available on the official conference website.
