===WHPCF'14: Call for Participation===


The Seventh Workshop on High Performance Computational Finance (WHPCF'14) 
is being held in co-operation with sighpc on the 16th of November at SC'14 
in New Orleans. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together 
practitioners, researchers, vendors, and scholars from the complementary 
fields of computational finance and high performance computing, in order 
to promote an exchange of ideas, discuss future collaborations and develop 
new research directions. Financial companies increasingly rely on high 
performance computers to analyze high volumes of financial data, 
automatically execute trades, and manage risk. 

As financial market data continues to grow in volume and complexity, 
computational capabilities of emerging hardware also increases. Extracting 
high performance from emerging architectures requires a combination of 
domain knowledge and specialized technical skills. The workshop will 
explore how researchers, scholars, vendors and practitioners are 
collaborating to address high performance computing research challenges.

We seek submissions that cover various aspects of computational finance. 
In addition to submissions that deal with performance and programmability 
challenges, theoretical analysis, algorithms, and practical experience in 
computational finance, we also particularly encourage submissions that 
demonstrate or result from the collaboration between financial 
practitioners, and scholars, researchers, or vendors.

For 2014, we are particularly interested in submissions addressing the 
following emerging topics in high performance computational finance:

-Financial analytics, including Big Data in computational finance
-Software infrastructure for high performance and high productivity
-Use of FPGAs for high frequency trading

Additional topics of interest to this workshop are listed on the workshop 
webpage http://ewh.ieee.org/conf/whpcf.

==Author Instructions==

Submitted papers must be no more than 8 pages in length. The camera ready 
version of accepted papers must be in ACM Proceedings format (latex users 
should select Option 2). Each submission will receive at least three 
reviews from the technical program committee and authors of selected 
submissions will have 30 minutes to present their work at the workshop. 
Papers should be submitted in electronic form to jmoreira at us.ibm.com
