ISC 2017 seeks contributors for Conference programme


20 Oct 2016 Frankfurt - ISC High Performance 2017 is now open to a number of submission opportunities. Whether your interest lies in research posters, project posters, birds-of-a-feather (BoF) sessions or the PhD forum, ISC is welcoming proposals from all members of the high performance computing (HPC) community.

ISC 2017 also calls on regional and international STEM undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in HPC to apply to volunteer at the five-day conference.

The organizers would like to stress that it is the community's participation in the above-mentioned programmes that will ultimately contribute to building a productive and diverse conference at ISC High Performance 2017. In return, the contributors, researchers, engineers, students and other members of the community will enjoy an excellent platform to discuss their research results and create awareness for their work. They will also have the chance to meet a wide network of people representing various organisations in the HPC space.

ISC High Performance is looking forward to continuing its tradition as the largest HPC conference and exhibition in Europe. It will be attended by over 3,000 academicians, industry leaders and end users from around the world. The ISC exhibition annually attracts around 150 organisations, including supercomputing, storage and network vendors, as well as universities, research centers, laboratories and international projects.

These are the deadlines:

  • Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF)

Submission Date: February 15, 2017, 11:59 pm AoE

Acceptance Notification: March 15, 2017

  • PhD Forum

Submission Date: February 15, 2017, 11:59 pm AoE

Acceptance Notification: March 15, 2017

  • Research Posters

Submission Date: March 3, 2017, 11:59 pm AoE

Acceptance Notification: March 31, 2017

  • Project Posters

Submission Date: March 3, 2017, 11:59 pm AoE

Acceptance Notification: March 31, 2017

  • Student Volunteers

Submission Date: March 15, 2017, 11:59 pm, AoE

Acceptance Notification: March 29, 2017

The informal BoF sessions often bring together like-minded people to discuss current HPC topics and also to network. Each session will be allocated 60 minutes to address their subject of interest. If you are interested in hosting a session, you can refer to the topics and submission guidelines on the ISC website.

The BoFs Committee, led by Dona Crawford of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Georg Hager from University of Erlangen, will review all submitted BoF proposals based on their originality, significance, quality and clarity. Each proposal will be evaluated by at least three reviewers.

Now in its second year, the PhD forum is a great platform for PhD students to present research results in a setting that sparks scientific exchange and lively discussions. It consists of two parts: a set of back-to-back lightning talks followed by a poster session. The lightning talks are meant to give a quick to-the-point presentation of research objectives and early results, while the posters will provide more in-depth information as a starting point for deeper discussions.

Submitted proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2017 PhD Forum Program Committee, which is headed by Bill Gropp of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with Gerhard Wellein from University of Erlangen-Nuremberg as Deputy Chair.

An award sponsored by Springer and travel funding are also available. Detailed information is offered at the ISC website.

The ISC research poster session is an excellent opportunity to present your latest research results, projects and innovations to a global audience including your HPC peers. Poster authors will have the opportunity to give short presentations on their posters, and to informally present them to the attendees during lunch and coffee breaks. There will also be a research poster reception sponsored by PRACE.

All submitted posters will be double-blind reviewed by at least three reviewers, and the accepted ones will be displayed from June 20 through June 21, 2017.

Research posters are intended to cover all areas of interest as listed in the call for research papers . You can visit the website for the full submission process.

New in 2017, the project poster session allows submitters to share their research ideas and projects at ISC. The session provides scientists with a platform for information exchange, whereas for the attendees it is an opportunity to gain an overview of new developments, HPC research and engineering activities. In contrast to the dissemination of research results in the research poster sessions, project posters enable participants to present ongoing and emerging projects by sharing fundamental ideas, methodology and preliminary work. Researchers with upcoming and recently funded projects are encouraged to submit a poster of their work. Those with novel project ideas are invited to present as well. Further information is available at the ISC website.

If you are a student pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in computer science, or any STEM-related fields, and HPC is on your radar, ISC 2017 is an event worth attending.

The organizers are looking for enthusiastic and reliable young people to help them run the conference. In return they offer you the opportunity to attend the tutorials, conference sessions, and workshops for free. They also encourage you to use the event to build your professional network. The conference after-hours experience is also fun. You will have the opportunity to intermingle with your peers from other educational institutions and international backgrounds. Such connections can go a long way as you develop your career. You can visit the ISC website to find out more.
