Call For Papers


NPC 2018

The 15th Annual IFIP International Conference on Network and Parallel Computing

November 29 - December 1,2018

Muroran, Hokkaido, Japan

High Performance Computing and Big Data are two main areas where NPC 2018 will
provide a dynamic forum to explore, discuss and debate state-of-the-art techn-
ology issues and challenges. Authors are invited to submit papers on all aspects
of high-performance computing and big data. Topics of interest include, but are
not limited to:

*Parallel and distributed applications and algorithms

--Parallel and distributed issues and opportunities on artificial intelli-
gence 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


Authors should submit the full version of the paper July 15, 2018, AOE. The full
version should be a PDF file following the submission guidelines that will be made
available at the submission website. Papers should be submitted for blind review.
New-idea papers as well as papers that significantly advance established areas are
strongly encouraged. Submission issues should be directed to program chairs, Marc
Snir and Jidong Zhai. We will publish top papers from NPC 2018 in a special issue
of the International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP), and the proceedings
will be published as part of Springer LNCS.

* Important Dates:
* Paper Submissions Due: July 15, 2018, AOE
* Results Notification: September 10, 2018
* Camera-ready Version: September 20, 2018
