HPCS 2010: Announcement and Call For Submissions

HPCS (High Performance Computing Symposium) is Canada's foremost HPC conference - a multidisciplinary conference where computational researchers from all disciplines in industry and academia, computer scientists, and vendors exchange new tools, techniques and interesting results in and for HPC computational research. The HPCS2010 conference will take place at the University of Toronto on June 6-9, with workshops on the two days preceding the symposium.

We are seeking abstracts for posters and oral presentations in the following areas, particularly as relating to our main theme; "Data Intensive Computing/Data Intensive Science":

  • Novel techniques for application of HPC to any discipline
  • New algorithms for computational research in any discipline
  • Development of novel computational research tools
  • Computer architectures
  • Grid computing
  • Tools for Performance Modeling or Tuning
  • Visualization
Submissions for oral presentations are due April 19; submissions should be in the form of extended abstracts (~500-1000 words) with a problem description, methods, conclusions (possibly preliminary), key references, and optionally figures. Submissions will be reviewed by the scientific committee, and notifications of acceptance will go out by May 3. The proceedings will be published in a peer-reviewed, indexed online publication after the conference, with a deadline for final versions of papers approximately a month after the conference.
Submissions for poster presentations are also due on April 19. These will follow the same procedure as for papers. Top posters in various categories will have the option to publish in the proceedings.
There are also spaces available for half-, one-, or two-day workshops to be held on the weekend before the conference (Jun 5-6). Already scheduled is a two-day workshop on parallel programming in MPI and OpenMP, aimed at graduate students and postdocs. Workshop proposals are due Feb 16.
