March 13, 2014

March 13 — You are cordially invited to participate in and attend the 2014 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation to be held in Bologna, Italy, July 21 – 25, 2014.  The conference is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in high performance and large scale computing systems, their use in modeling and simulation, their design, performance and use, and their impact.  Participation is extended to researchers, designers, educators and interested parties in all related disciplines and specialties.

Purpose

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 HPC & simulation technologies and systems and related issues.

Submission of Papers

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and related HPC topics are solicited.  Please submit an electronic copy of your full manuscript (not to exceed 8 double-column IEEE formatted pages, including figures, tables, and references).  Additional pages will be charged additional fee.  Please clearly indicate the corresponding author and include emails for all co-authors of the papers.  Include up to 6 keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 400 words.  Papers must be submitted in .pdf format only via web at the following conference website: http://hpcs14.cisedu.info/  (Upload link http://cisedu.us/cis/hpcs/14/users/upload.jsp).  More detailed submission procedures will be available on this website.  If accepted, the final camera-ready manuscript will follow the format 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, significance, timeliness, relevance, and clarity of presentation.  Initial selection will be based on full papers.  Submission implies the intent and willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  All accepted papers in the conference are required to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings.  Manuscripts submitted should not be under simultaneous consideration by any other conference or venues.  People with a submission for the purpose of obtaining reviews only will be cited.

For information about the HPCS 2014 conference in general, please contact the conference organizers or consult the conference web site.

Doctoral Dissertation Colloquium

The HPCS Doctoral Colloquium is intended to bring together PhD students working on HPCS related topics, to provide them a friendly forum and an opportunity to present, discuss and illustrate their ongoing research in a constructively critical and informal atmosphere, to obtain valuable feedback from conference attendees, particularly senior researchers and experts in the field.  Additionally, the colloquium is meant to facilitate the interaction and collaboration with other researchers.  Doctoral students who have not defended their thesis prior to HPCS 2014 are invited to participate in the HPCS Doctoral Colloquium.  Proposals for the Doctoral Colloquium are welcomed and should be submitted by March 25, 2014.  See DDC page for more information.  If you have any questions, please contact the DDC Co-Chairs.

Exhibits

Exhibit booths will be available to display your newest products and technologies.  Make plans now to take advantage of this prime advertising opportunity.  Proposals are welcomed and should be submitted by March 25, 2014. See Exhibits page for more information.  If you have any questions, please contact Exhibits Chairs.  

Sponsorship and Industry Liaison

The HPCS 2014 Conference seeks interested Industry Partners who would be willing to sponsor conference events or social activities (e.g., exhibits reception, speaker sponsorship, registration handout packets, special break snacks, etc.).  If an industry representative is interested in becoming an HPCS 2014 Industry Partner or would like to propose an event or activity at the conference, please contact the Industry Liaison Chairs.  See Sponsorships page for more information.
