ISC High Performance calls on researchers to join the 2016 Research Paper sessions


1 Sep 2015 Frankfurt - The ISC High Performance conference, Europe's most renowned forum for high performance computing, is now open to research paper submissions. The ISC Research Paper sessions are an integral part of the 31st supercomputing conference series and will be held June 20, through June 22, 2016. Next year's conference will take place in Frankfurt, Germany, from June 19-23. ISC High Performance 2016 is looking forward to bringing 3,000 academicians, industry leaders and end users from around the world to the event.

The ISC 2016 Research Paper Committee, chaired by Professor Dr. Jack Dongarra, is welcoming proposals reporting original work in theoretical, experimental and industrial research and development in the following areas:

  • Architectures: future design concepts for HPC, multicore/manycore systems, heterogeneous systems, network technology, programming models
  • Algorithms and Analysis: scalability on future architectures, performance evaluation and tuning and innovative domain-specific algorithms
  • Data Centres: batch job management, job mix and system utilization, monitoring and administration tools, production efficiency, energy efficiency
  • Large-Scale Simulations: workflow management, data analysis and visualization, coupled simulations, industrial simulations, scalable applications: 50K+ threads
  • Future Trends: trends in the HPC chip market, exascale HPC, HPC in the Cloud
  • Storage and Data: from Big Data to smart data, memory systems for HPC and Big Data, file systems and tape libraries, data intensive applications and databases
  • Software Engineering in HPC: the art of parallel programming, application of methods, surveys

Submissions on other innovative aspects of HPC are also welcome.

The organizers would like to emphasize that the ISC research paper sessions provide engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government an excellent platform to present and discuss issues, trends and research results that will shape the future of HPC.

Submission deadlines are as follows:

  • Full Submission Deadline: December 1, 2015, 11:59 pm AoE
  • Author Rebuttal: February 15, 2016
  • Author Notification: March 7, 2016
  • Research Paper Sessions: June 20 - June 22, 2016

Two awards will be given to the most outstanding research papers. The first is the Hans Meuer Award, which will be awarded to a paper deemed deserving by the Research Papers Committee. The Hans Meuer Award has been introduced in memory of the late Dr. Hans Meuer, general chair of the ISC conference from 1986 through 2014, and co-founder of the TOP500 project.

The winner will be announced during the opening session, and will be given the opportunity to deliver a keynote in a paper session. The winner will receive a cash prize of 3,000 euro, an award certificate as well as free conference participation for 2017.

The second is the Gauss Award, which will be given to the most outstanding paper in the field of scalable supercomputing. It is sponsored by the German Gauss Center for Supercomputing, which is the collaboration between the German national supercomputing centres at Garching, Juelich and Stuttgart. The winner will be awarded a cash prize of 3,000 euro and given the opportunity to deliver a keynote about the winning paper during one of the research sessions.
