Call For Papers

NPC 2017

The 14th IFIP International Conference on Network and Parallel Computing
October 20th-21st 2017, Hefei, China

Paper Submissions Due: June 10th, 2017
Results notification: July 24th, 2017
Camera-ready version due: August 7th, 2017

High Performance Computing and Big Data are two main areas where NPC
2017 will provide a dynamic forum to explore, discuss and debate
state-of-the-art technology issues and challenges. High-performance
computers and big-data systems are tied inextricably to the broader
computing ecosystem and its designs and market adoption. They also
highlight information security needs and economic competitiveness in
ways that distinguish them from most other scientific instruments. We
strongly believe that the stake is high, and it is far beyond the
boundaries of nations and continents, and should strongly encourage a
broad international participation.

We share the view that, during the past decade, the tools and cultures
of high-performance computing and big data analytics are diverging to
the detriment of both, and the international community should find a
unified path that can best serve the need of a broad spectrum of major
application areas. Unlike other tools, which are limited to particular
scientific domains, computational modeling and data analytics are
applicable to all areas of science and engineering, as they breathe
life into the underlying mathematics of scientific models.

Parallel and distributed applications and algorithms:
* Parallel and distributed issues and opportunities on artificial
intelligence application.
* Parallel algorithms for computational and data-enabled scientific,
engineering, biological and medical applications
* Parallel algorithms for accelerators, neuromorphic architectures,
and other emerging architectures
* Parallel and distributed architectures and systems

Emerging architectures and systems at all scales, from embedded to cloud:
* Systems for enabling parallelism at an extreme scale
* Power-efficient and green computing systems
* Neuromorphic architectures and cognitive computing accelerators
* Heterogeneous multicore architectures and accelerators
* In-Memory and near-data computing
* Network and interconnect architectures
* Storage systems in novel big data architectures
* Parallel and distributed software environments and tools

Programming models and compilation for existing and emerging platforms:
* Dataflow programming models, frameworks, languages and environments for
data-enabled platforms
* Virtualization of machines, networks, and storage
* I/O, file systems, and data management
* Resource management, scheduling, and load balancing

NPC is in its 14th year and previous conferences have attracted high
quality papers and wide international participation.

Top ranked, reviewed papers in NPC 2017 will be published directly (without
further extension) by the International Journal of Parallel Programming (SCI
indexed). To qualify for publication in IJPP, all submissions must meet the
paper length and other requirements of IJPP. More information can be found:
Other accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, by
LNCS, Springer (EI, Scopus).
