– Innovative HPC (Autonomic, Affective, Quantum, …)

Other topic areas include Algorithms, Software and Middleware in HPC Systems, and Applications-Oriented High Performance. Visit the conference web site for a detailed list of topics.

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and any other related HPCS topics are solicited. Manuscripts submitted should not be under simultaneous consideration by any other conference or venues. Please submit an electronic copy of your full draft manuscript, not to exceed 8 pages in the single-spaced, double-column format, including figures, tables, and references, according to the template posted on the HPCS 2017 web site. Additional pages will be charged an additional fee. If accepted, the final camera-ready manuscript will follow the conference format template 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, soundness, contributions and significance, timeliness, relevance, flow and clarity of presentation, language and overall quality. Initial selection will be based on full papers. Papers are accepted based on these criteria and not those of the authors or their institutions. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings papers are usually indexed in all major indexing services.

The conference will include invited presentations by experts from academia, industry, and government as well as contributed paper presentations describing original work on the current state of research in high performance and large scale computing systems, their design, performance and use, their use in modeling and simulation, and their applications. There will also be tutorial sessions, symposia, workshops, special sessions, demos, posters, panel discussions, doctoral colloquium, and exhibits. Conference sponsorships are welcomed.

In addition to the main track, the conference will have many refereed and archived symposia, workshops and special sessions: Please see—hpcs2017—hpcs2017—hpcs-2017
