The Student Research Symposium (SRS) at HiPC is organized to stimulate and
foster student engagement in high performance computing research, and to
provide an international forum to highlight student research
accomplishments in HPC. The symposium will also expose students to the
latest research and best practices in the HPC community from academia and

HiPC SRS 2012 featured 17 papers and 13 posters, which were accepted from
45 submissions from five countries. Besides brief presentations and poster
exhibit by student authors, the one-day symposium this year will feature
invited talks by leading HPC researchers/practitioners. The HiPC conference
reception will provide an opportunity for students to interact with HPC
researchers and practitioners (and recruiters) from academia and industry.


We invite submission of extended research abstracts of 5 pages for the HiPC
SRS. All topics relevant to the HiPC conference are of interest to this
symposium. These include, but are not limited to:

* High-Performance Computing

* Parallel and Distributed Algorithms

* Parallel Languages and Programming Environments

* Load Balancing, Scheduling and Resource Management

* Resilient/Fault-Tolerant Algorithms and Systems

* Scientific/Engineering/Commercial Applications and Workloads

* Emerging Applications such as Biotechnology and Nanotechnology

* Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Cloud Computing

* Peer-to-peer Algorithms and Networks

* Heterogeneous Computing

* Interconnection Networks and Architectures

* Scalable Servers and Systems

* High Performance/Scalable Storage Systems

* Power-Efficient and Reconfigurable Architectures

* Compiler Technologies for High-Performance Computing

* Software Support and Advanced Micro-architecture Techniques

* Operating Systems for Scalable High-Performance Computing


The extended abstracts should be submitted in PDF format. The document
should be at most 5 letter size (8.5in x 11in) pages in 11 pt or 12 pt
fonts, single spaced, with at least one-inch margins on all sides. Please
identify the names of student authors in a footnote. If some part of your
submission was published by you previously, then you should cite your prior
work and indicate how the current submission differs from it.

Submissions will be handled electronically through EasyChair at
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=srshipc13.  Detailed submission
instructions are available at www.hipc.org/hipc2013/studentsymposium.php.
The selected extended abstracts will be published online on the conference
web site and on a CD to be distributed at the conference. They will not be
part of the official HiPC conference proceedings. Selection will be
competitive and all submissions will be reviewed. Manuscripts will be
judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, and significance,
quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference

For additional details, please contact the Symposium Co-Chairs at
student_symposium AT hipc.org


The research work presented in the submission should primarily be the
result of student research. Accepted papers and posters should be presented
by a student author. The student author should have been a full-time
student at some point in 2011. Non-student co-authors are permitted.


Awards for Best Poster and Best Presentation, sponsored by the IEEE
Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP) will be selected by a
separate awards committee. We expect a total award money of Indian Rupees
50, 000.  Limited scholarships in the form of travel grants to cover part
or all of travel, boarding and registration are available to authors of
accepted papers. Student authors of the top few submissions at the
symposium will be assured of a travel scholarship.

A book containing the resumes of the students participating in the
symposium will be compiled and made available to the sponsors of the HiPC
2013 conference.

Workshops : Held in conjunction with the

19th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing

(HiPC 2013)

December 18-21, 2011 | Hyderabad, INDIA | www.hipc.org


The 20 annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing
(HiPC 2013) will be held in Hyderabad, India during December 18 - December
21, 2013. It will serve as a forum to present the current work by
researchers from around the world. HiPC 2013 will focus on the design and
analysis of high performance computing and networking systems and their
scientific, engineering, and commercial applications.

Complementing the main technical program, HiPC workshops serve to broaden
the technical scope of the conference in emerging areas of high performance
computing and communication, and their applications. The HiPC workshops
serves as an extended forum to present and discuss work-in-progress as well
as mature research among researchers from around the world, and also
highlight research activities in India.

The workshops listed below will be co-located with HiPC 2013 and are
soliciting submissions. For more information, please visit individual
workshop's website which are provided below, or correspond directly with
the respective workshop's chairs.
