ISC 2019 calls for research paper submission by December 12, 2018

1 Oct 2018 Frankfurt - Submissions are now open for the ISC High Performance (ISC 2019) Research Paper Sessions. These sessions aim to provide first-class opportunities for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to present their work in the area of high performance computing, networking, storage and AI/machine learning. Submissions will be accepted through December 12, 2018.

The Research Paper Sessions will be held from June 17 through June 19, 2019 at the conference, which will be held in Frankfurt, Germany. Next year's conference expects over 3,500 international attendees and 160 exhibitors.

All submitted research papers will be peer-reviewed double-blind by at least four reviewers. The 2019 Research Papers Committee is headed by Dr.-Ing. Carsten Trinitis, TU Munich, as Chair and Saday Sadayappan, Ohio State University, as Deputy Chair, along with Dr. Michèle Weiland, EPCC, as Proceedings Chair and Guido Juckeland, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, as Proceedings Deputy Chair.

The ISC organizers will grant a 100 percent discount on the conference day pass to one presenter per paper for the day of their presentation. Two prestigious awards, the ISC-sponsored Hans Meuer Award and the German Gauss Center for Supercomputing GAUSS Award await the two best submissions.

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 eight tracks this year:

1. Architectures, Networks & Infrastructure

  • 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 & big data
  • Scalability on future architectures
  • Workflow management
  • Coupled simulations
  • Industrial simulations
  • Implementations on GPUs & other accelerators

4. HPC Algorithms

  • Innovative algorithms, discrete or continuous
  • Algorithmic-based fault tolerance
  • Communication-reducing & synchronization-reducing algorithms
  • Time-space trade-offs in algorithms
  • Energy-efficient algorithms

5. Programming Models & Systems Software

  • Parallel programming paradigms
  • Tools & libraries for performance & productivity
  • Job management
  • Monitoring & administration tools
  • Productivity improvement
  • Power & energy management & scheduling
  • Resilience

6. Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

  • Neural networks & HPC
  • Machine learning & HPC
  • AI & machine learning-oriented hardware​
  • Devising benchmarks for machine learning
  • Use cases

7. Performance Modeling & Measurement Emerging Technologies

  • Performance models
  • Performance prediction & engineering
  • Performance measurement
  • Power consumption
  • Energy measurement & modelling

8. Emerging Technologies

  • Quantum computing architecture
  • Software for quantum computing
  • Quantum algorithms
  • Quantum annealing

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 eight above for your submission. You can refer to the research papers web page for full submission guidelines.

The publication of the papers is managed by Proceedings Chair Dr. Michèle Weiland, EPCC, and Proceedings Deputy Chair Guido Juckeland, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf.

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 papers can be downloaded for free from Springer's website for a limited time after ISC 2019. The proceedings will be indexed in the ISI Web of Science, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus and Zentralblatt MATH.
