Call now open for ISC 2018 research papers: Submission ends December 22, 2017

5 Oct 2017 Frankfurt - Submissions are now open for the ISC 2018 conference research paper sessions, which aim to provide first-class opportunities for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to present and discuss issues, trends, and results that will shape the future of high performance computing (HPC). Submissions will be accepted through December 22, 2017.

The research paper sessions will be held from June 25, through June 27, 2018. ISC High Performance (ISC 2018) will be hosted in Frankfurt, Germany.

Submitted research papers will be peer-reviewed double-blind by at least four reviewers. This year's Research Papers Committee is headed by Prof. David Keyes, KAUST, as Chair and Dr.-Ing. Carsten Trinitis, TU Munich, as Deputy Chair and Prof. Rio Yokota, Tokyo Institute of Technology, as Proceedings Chair and Dr. Michèle Weiland, EPCC, as Proceedings Deputy Chair.

All accepted research papers will be published in the Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. For the camera-ready version, authors are automatically granted one extra page to incorporate reviewer comments. The publication is free of charge and the published papers can be downloaded from Springer's website for a limited time after the conference. The proceedings are indexed in the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S), included in ISI Web of Science, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus and Zentralblatt MATH.

The Research Papers Committee encourages the submission of high-quality papers reporting original work in theoretical, experimental, and industrial research and development. The ISC submission process will be divided into seven tracks this year and they are:

1. Architectures & Networks

  • Future design concepts of HPC systems
  • Multi-core/many-core systems
  • Heterogeneous systems
  • Network technology
  • Domain-specific architectures
  • Memory technologies
  • Trends in the HPC chip market
  • Exascale computing

2. Data, Storage & Visualization

  • From Big Data to smart data
  • Memory systems for HPC & Big Data
  • File systems & tape libraries
  • Data intensive applications
  • Databases
  • Visual analytics
  • In-situ analytics

3. HPC Applications

  • Highly scalable applications
  • Convergence of simulations and big data
  • Scability on future architectures
  • Workflow management
  • Coupled simulations
  • Industrial simulations
  • Implementations on SIMT accelerators

4. HPC Algorithms

  • Innovative algorithms, discrete or continuous
  • Algorithmic-based fault tolerance
  • Communication-reducing algorithms
  • Synchronization-reducing algorithms
  • Time-space trade-offs in algorithms

5. Programming Models & Systems Software

  • Parallel programming paradigms
  • Tools and libraries for performance and productivity
  • Job management
  • Monitoring & administration tools
  • Productivity improvement
  • Energy efficiency

6. Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

  • Neural networks and HPC
  • Machine learning and HPC
  • AI and machine learning-oriented hardware​
  • Devising benchmarks for machine learning

7. Performance Modelling & Measurement

  • Performance models
  • Performance prediction and engineering
  • Performance measurement
  • Power consumption

Submissions on other innovative aspects of high performance computing are also welcome. You will be asked to pick a primary and a secondary track from the seven above for your submission.

The ISC organizers will recognize the most outstanding research paper with the ISC founding father award, the Hans Meuer Award and the winner(s) will be announced in an official ceremony during the conference.

The German Gauss Center for Supercomputing, which is a collaboration of the German national supercomputing centers at Garching, Jülich and Stuttgart, will sponsor The Gauss Award.

Important dates include:

  • Submission Deadline: December 22, 2017, 11:59 pm AoE
  • Author Rebuttals: February 19 - February 22, 2018
  • Notification of Acceptance: March 5, 2018
  • Camera-Ready Submission: April 2, 2018
  • Research Paper Sessions: June 25 - June 27, 2018
  • Final Presentation Slides in PDF due: June 29, 2018

If you have any questions or comments, you can contact the conference program coordinator, Tanja Gruenter .
