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Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and related HPC topics are solicited.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.
