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
2. Data, Storage & Visualization
3. HPC Applications
4. HPC Algorithms
5. Programming Models & Systems Software
6. Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
7. Performance Modelling & Measurement
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.
