                              Call for Papers

           ICS 2017: International Conference on Supercomputing
                     June 14-16, Chicago, USA
                     Sponsored by ACM/SIGARCH

ICS is the premier international forum for the presentation of
research results in high-performance computing. The 2017 conference
will be held in Chicago, United States.

Papers are solicited on all aspects of research, development, and
application of high-performance computing systems, including but not
limited to the following:

  -- Computer architecture and hardware, including multicore, manycore
     and multiprocessor systems from small to very large scales,
     components in such systems such as accelerators, memory systems,
     storage architectures, interconnection networks at various levels,
     and heterogeneous systems;

  -- Programming and execution models for high-performance computing,
     including new paradigms, languages, task creation and
     specification models, domain-specific language/programming

  -- Static and dynamic compilation: optimization techniques to exploit
     all aspects of high performance architectures and auto-tuning

  -- Runtime and system software support for high-performance
     computing, including task and resource management at chip-level,
     cluster-level, up to the level of large-scale academic/commercial
     computing service infrastructure, debugging, fault-tolerance,
     power/energy management, file systems, and performance

  -- New computational algorithms and their applications for high
     performance computing systems;

  -- Workload characterization empirical studies especially those on
     new scientific and commercial applications that pose significant
     challenges, and studies of highly experimental real systems;

  -- Data intensive high performance computing: system support,
     algorithm design and application development for high performance
     computing that deal with large-scale collected data sets.

The review process will include a rebuttal period, and the papers will
be judged based on novelty, technical soundness, and potential impact
on the field.

    Important dates:
    Abstract submission: January 11, 2017 (Anywhere on Earth (AOE))
    Paper submission:     January 18, 2017 (AOE)
    Author rebuttal period:     March 5-7, 2017 (AOE)
    Author notification:     March 21, 2017 (AOE)
    Camera-ready papers due:     April 15, 2017 (AOE)
    Main conference days:     June 14-16, 2017 (AOE)

AOE (Anywhere on Earth) dates shown above mean the deadlines are at
11:59pm UTC -12:00 of the days. The above dates are tentative and
subject to change. Consult the conference website for the most
up-to-date scheduling information.

    Paper submissions:

Papers are submitted at Easychair
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ics20170) which is also
accessible from the ICS'17 home page (http://press3.mcs.anl.gov/ics2017/).
Use the ACM SIG Proceedings Alternate style. Extensive documentation can be
found at the ACM site. Submissions should be a maximum of ten (10) pages,
including references.

Submissions (both abstract and paper) should be prepared for double
blind review, i.e., without author names, or other identifying
material in the submission. Authors should refer to themselves in the
3rd person when citing their own work. The submission system requests
information about the authors. This information will not be given to
the reviewers.
