LEIPZIG, Germany, Dec. 3 – The 2013 International Supercomputing Conference Research Paper and Tutorials Committees are now accepting abstracts and tutorial proposals for ISC’13 in Europe. The ISC’13 Call for Papers is supported by the IEEE Germany Section.
The deadline for the research paper abstract submission is Sunday, January 27, 2013 and the tutorial proposals are to be submitted by Sunday, February 10, 2013. All abstracts and proposals need to be submitted via the EasyChair conference system. An early submission of abstracts is required so that papers can be distributed according to the expertise of individual committee member. Please refer to the ISC’13 website for full submission guidelines or contact the program coordinator, Ms. Heike Walther at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ISC’13 conference and exhibition, the 28th in the ISC series, will take place June 16 – 20, 2013, and is expected to draw more than 2,500 academic and industry attendees and 170 exhibitors representing high-performance computing, networking and storage to the fascinating and historic city of Leipzig, Germany.
High-quality research papers reporting original work in theoretical, experimental and industry research and development are sought in the following areas:
ISC Awards Program
Two awards will be given to the most outstanding papers. The German Gauss Center for Supercomputing – a cooperation of the German national supercomputing centers at Garching, Juelich and Stuttgart – sponsors the Gauss Award consisting of 3,000 Euro, which will be assigned to the most outstanding paper in the field of scalable supercomputing.
The second award is the PRACE (the Partnership for Advanced Computing) Award, which will be awarded to the best paper submitted to the ISC Research Paper Session and the PRACE Scientific Conference in the following areas: a breakthrough in science achieved through high performance computing; an algorithms or implementations that achieves a significant improvements in scalability or performance; and a novel approach to performance evaluation on massively parallel architecture.
The ISC’13 Tutorials are intended as educational events that cover all areas as listed on the Call for Papers. However, ISC encourages tutorials of broad applicability rather than those focusing solely on the research in a limited domain or a particular group.
We also encourage presenters to incorporate hands-on sessions where it is appropriate and provide the attendees with a comprehensive introduction to the state-of-the-art in the topic before moving on to cover specific approaches in more depth.

Call for Posters: Sunday, February 10, 2013
Call for BoFs: Sunday, February 10, 2013
Now moving into the 28th year, ISC is the world’s oldest and the most significant high-performance computing conference and exhibition in Europe for the global HPC community. It offers a strong five-day technical program with a wide range of expert speakers and exhibits from leading research centers and vendors. A number of events complement the technical program, including Tutorials, Workshops, Research and Industry Panels, TOP500 Announcement, Research Paper Sessions, Birds of a Feather (BoF) Sessions, Research Poster Session, Student Cluster Competition, Exhibitor Forums, and the popular Reverse Hot Seat Sessions in a new format featuring leaders from industry and research centers and a number of satellite events organized by our partners and sponsors in conjunction with ISC’13. The conference has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years, with an estimated 2,500 participants from around the world expected to convene in Leipzig, June 16 – 20.
ISC’13 is open to IT-decision makers, scientists, members of the HPC global community and other interested parties. The ISC exhibition allows analysts, decision-makers from the automotive, defense, aeronautical, gas & oil, banking and other industries; solution providers, data storage suppliers, distributors, hardware and software manufacturers, the media, scientists and universities to see and learn firsthand about new products, applications and technological advances in the supercomputing industry today.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
