Are you interested in hosting a workshop at the ISC High Performance 

ISC is now accepting proposals for full- or half-day workshops. The goal 
of workshops is to provide attendees with a focused and in-depth 
platform for presentations, discussion and interaction in a particular 
subject area. We are inviting workshop proposals on topics related to 
all aspects of research, development, and application of large-scale, 
high-performance experimental and commercial systems.

Topics include HPC computer architecture and hardware, programming 
models, system software, and applications, solutions for heterogeneity, 
reliability, and power efficiency of systems as well as how those areas 
apply to big data and cloud computing.

Submitted workshop proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2016 Workshops 
Committee, which is headed by Bernd Mohr, Juelich Supercomputing Centre 
(Germany) and Michela Taufer, University of Delaware (USA).

Workshops will be held on Thursday, June 23 in the Marriott Frankfurt 
Hotel, the day after the ISC High Performance conference. Attendance 
will require a workshop pass.


* Pre-submission Deadline Tuesday, December 1, 2015, 11:59pm AoE
* Pre-submission Notification Tuesday, December 15, 2015
* Final Submission Deadline Monday, February 15, 2016, 11:59pm AoE
* Final Notification Tuesday, March 15, 2016
* Workshop Day Thursday, June 23, 2016


Workshop proceedings: We plan to provide workshop organizers with the 
option to publish their workshop papers, if desired, in a separate Joint 
Workshop Proceeding Volume, published online with Springer Publishing 
like the ISC 2016 research papers proceedings. Note that the decision by 
Springer is still pending. The workshop proceedings will be published 
after the conference. Of course, workshop organizers are also free to 
organize the publication of paper proceedings on their own.

Early deadline for workshops with call for papers and a peer-review 
process: Proposals for workshops that want to disseminate their own call 
for papers and implement the peer-review process should be submitted by 
December 1, 2015. Proposals for “regular” workshops without call for 
papers should be submitted by February 15, 2016.


Workshop proposals can be submitted now via the ISC 2016 Linklings 
conference system at:

Proposals need to be uploaded as a single PDF file.

The Workshops Committee will peer review all workshop proposals 
submitted, select the workshops and allocate their time slots. Note that 
the Workshops Committee will also make early acceptance decisions for 
workshops submitted to the pre-submission deadline. This will give 
workshop organizers more time to promote and prepare their workshops. We 
strongly encourage workshop organizers to submit their proposal as early 
as possible so that there is enough time to organize the workshop 
program before the conference.
