HPC 2018 : High Performance Computing Symposium
Conference Series : High Performance Computing
Call For Papers
The 2018 Spring Simulation Multi-Conference will feature the 26th High Performance Computing Symposium (HPC 2018), devoted to the impact of high performance computing and communications on computer simulations.
Advances in multicore and many-core architectures, networking, high end computers, large data stores, and middleware capabilities are ushering in a new era of high performance parallel and distributed simulations. Along with these new capabilities come new challenges in computing and system modeling. The goal of HPC 2018 is to encourage innovation in high performance computing and communication technologies and to promote synergistic advances in modeling methodologies and simulation. It will promote the exchange of ideas and information between universities, industry, supercomputing centers, and national laboratories about new developments in system modeling, high performance computing and communication, scientific computing as well as simulation.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- High performance computing issues in Big Data analytics
- High performance/large scale application case studies
- GPU for general purpose computations (GPGPU)
- Accelerator and co-processor computing
- Multicore and many-core computing
- Exascale challenges
- Power aware computing
- Cloud, distributed, and grid computing
- Asynchronous numerical methods and programming
- Hybrid system modeling and simulation
- Hybrid parallel or distributed algorithms
- Large scale visualization and data management
- Tools and environments for coupling parallel codes
- Parallel algorithms and architectures
- High performance software tools and techniques
- Resilience at the simulation level
- Reproducibility of application performance results
Contributed papers are a maximum of 12 pages long with single column format (5 pages at minimum). They will be peer reviewed and – if accepted and presented at the conference – submitted to the ACM Digital Library. Papers must not have appeared before (or be pending) in a journal or conference with published proceedings, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during the SpringSim'18 review process. At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the symposium and must present the paper at the symposium. There is also a possibility to submit to Work in Progress or Posters tracks; more details will be announced on the website. All submissions will be peer reviewed, evaluated on relevance, technical quality, and exposition, and feedback will be provided.
