Call for papers
Aim and scope
Following on from the successful previous six editions of the International Supercomputing Conference in Mexico (ISUM), the Organizing Committee is delighted to announce and to invite to participate in the ISUM2016.
The 7th ISUM meeting celebrates new conditions for the high-performance computing in Mexico (HPC). Effectively, new laboratories for HPC are up and working. Furthermore, now Mexico is back into the list of the 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world.
The hosting institution, Benemerita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla, recently opened the Laboratorio Nacional de Supercomputer del Sureste de Mexico (LNS). This is a watershed in the HPC development in Mexico, because a public university outside of the capital city, for the first time, has a high computational power facility, hosting one of the most powerful supercomputers in Latin America. The LNS data center is now in the process of certification as an ICREA III. LNS is strongly supporting academia, government, and industry.
One of the main goals of the ISUM2016 is to open the possibilities for a wide interchange of ideas, to spread new tendencies in HPC; to present new results of scientific research obtained using supercomputing support. ISUM 2016 gives the opportunity to listen to plenary talks by world leaders of HPC. Moreover, one of the most important motivations of the meeting is to open a general communication forum with the industry for a high-level discussion with relevant subjects as innovation, development, and research.
ISUM2016 keeps in mind the importance of human resources formation. To accomplish that, we are offering five trending topic workshops.
We appreciate your participation, and willingness to present your latest research. Papers are solicited on the following and related topics:
1. Cluster Grid and Cloud Computing for Architectures in Industry
2. Applications for Science, Engineering, Health, Scientific Visualization, Simulation and Modeling
3. Parallel Processing , Algorithms and Techniques in GGPU and CPU
4. Tools and Environments for High Performance System Engineering, Software Tools, Programming Tools, Virtualization.
5. Systems to solve Complex problems in Academic and Scientific Research fields
6. Emerging and New Technologies for HPC, Big Data, Advance Networking, Petascale / Exascale Technologies.
7. Green Computing
8. HPC for Business Computing
9. HPC for Oil & Gas Industry.

CONTRIBUTION AND PAPER PREPARATION
Authors are invited to submit contributed papers and posters written in English, according to the Springer LNCS style. Latex Templates: llncs2e.zip & typeinst.zip. Word Templates: llncs_word_template.zip.
Submissions will be handled electronically using the Easy Chair system:
Please submit a 50-word text abstract for review purposes that is suitable for rapid publication.
Please also submit a 2-Pages camera ready Summary. If your paper is accepted, this summary will be published before the conference in the online programs. Notice the limit is two pages.
The style guide provides a visual representation of the paper format. The summary should not exceed two pages and must be typed with the page layout set to 8½" x 11" with one-inch margins on all sides. Within two pages, authors must include all text: title, authors, and affiliations, the 50-word abstract, equations, figures and references, etc. We strongly recommend highlight the HPC used in your contribution.
The authors of accepted talks and posters must guarantee that their contribution will be presented at the conference. All accepted contributions will be published electronically in the "Book of Abstracts." Contributed papers must have between 6 to 15 pages.
The most valuable submissions will be included into the conference program as keynotes. The Organizing Committee will promote the publication of best papers in an international and indexed journal. We will update the information in future communications.
REVIEW, NOTIFICATION, AND PROGRAM PLACEMENT INFORMATION
Conference Chair/Editor will assess all contributions for technical review and suitability of content.
The contact author will receive notification of acceptance and presentation details by e-mail the week of 26 February 2016.
Final placement in an oral or poster session is subject to the Chairs' discretion.
The ISUM2016 hosting city: Heroica Puebla de Zaragoza, appointed as part of UNESCO's World Heritage and one of the world's most highly awarded cities, is a good gateway to Mexico. Because of its wide tourism infrastructure, vast culture, tradition, gastronomy and world-class events, Puebla is on the international map as a one of a kind destination.
All ISUM2016 sessions will take place in the Cultural University Complex (CCU) located in the south of the city. The CCU is one of the modern landmarks of the BUAP, has an entire infrastructure designed for seminars, conferences, and meetings in a pleasant and cultural environment. It has activities that allow attendees (in their spare time) access to music, theater, cinema, etc.
