Submission of Papers:
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and related HPC topics are solicited. Please submit an electronic copy of your full manuscript (not to exceed 8 double-column IEEE formatted pages, including figures, tables, and references). Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please clearly indicate the corresponding author and include emails for all co-authors of the papers. Include up to 6 keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Papers must be submitted in .pdf format only at the following conference website: http://hpcs15.cisedu.info/ (Upload link http://cisedu.us/cis/hpcs/15/users/upload.jsp). More detailed submission procedures will be available on this website. If accepted, the final camera-ready manuscript will follow the format 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, contributions and significance, timeliness, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Initial selection will be based on full papers. Submission implies the intent and willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. All accepted papers in the conference are required to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings. Manuscripts submitted should not be under simultaneous consideration by any other conference or venues. People with a submission for the purpose of obtaining reviews only will be cited.
For information about the HPCS 2015 conference in general, please contact the conference organizers or consult the conference web site.
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.
Tracks, Symposia, Workshops and Special Sessions
Tracks, Symposia, Workshops and Special Sessions on HPCS related topics are welcomed. A workshop or a special session proposal should include a title, topics covered by the workshop, organizers information, submission instructions, review process, important dates, total number of expected accepted papers, and any other information for the authors. Proposals for tracks, symposia, workshops and special sessions should be submitted by January 30, 2015 as a Word file email attachment.

Doctoral Dissertation Colloquium
The HPCS Doctoral Colloquium is intended to bring together PhD students working on HPCS related topics, to provide them a friendly forum and an opportunity to present, discuss and illustrate their ongoing research in a constructively critical and informal atmosphere, to obtain valuable feedback from conference attendees, particularly senior researchers and experts in the field. Additionally, the colloquium is meant to facilitate the interaction and collaboration with other researchers. Doctoral students who have not defended their thesis prior to HPCS 2015 are invited to participate in the HPCS Doctoral Colloquium.
