• Scope
As the share of Supercomputers in Asia continues to increase, the
relevance of Supercomputing in Asia has achieved a critical mass to
merit the inauguration of a Supercomputing conference for Asia.
Supercomputing Asia (SCA) 2018 will encompass an umbrella of notable
supercomputing events with the key objective of promoting a vibrant
and relevant HPC ecosystem in Asian countries, and will be held from
26 to 29 March 2018 at Resorts World Convention Centre, Singapore. The
technical program of SCA18 has its roots in Supercomputing Frontiers
(SCF), which is Singapore’s annual international HPC conference
inaugurated in 2015 by A*CRC, and now hosted by NSCC Singapore. SCF17
was attended by over 450 delegates from over 12 different countries.
Riding on the success from the previous year, Supercomputing Frontiers
will be rebranded as Supercomputing Frontiers Asia (SCFA), which
serves as the technical program for SCA18. The technical program for
SCA18 consists of four tracks; “Application, Algorithms & Libraries”,
“Programming & System Software”, “Data, Storage & Visualization”, and
“Architecture, Network/Communications & Management”.

• Topics
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Application, Algorithms & Libraries
 Bioinformatics and computational biology
 Climate, weather, and earth sciences
 Materials science and chemistry
 Scalable numerical methods
 Fault-tolerant algorithms
 Energy-efficient algorithms
 Domain-specific, languages, libraries or frameworks

 Fault tolerant networks
 Architecture for converged HPC/Big Data
 Administration, monitoring and maintenance tools

• Paper Submission
Submission can be made through Springer’s online submission system
(https://ocs.springer.com/ocs/home/SCA2018). All submissions must
follow Springer's LNCS format
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors) without changing
default margins, fonts, etc. The total page limit is 18 pages
excluding references. Supplementary materials that facilitate
verification of the results, e.g., source code, proof details, etc.,
may be appended without a page limit or uploaded as separate files,
but reviewers are neither required to read them nor will they be
printed in the proceedings. Hence submissions must be complete,
intelligible and self-contained within the 18 pages bound. Papers
should have page numbers to facilitate their review. In LaTeX, this
can be achieved for instance using \pagestyle{plain}. Each submission
must be a single PDF file. Papers should present original research and
should provide sufficient background material to make them accessible
to the broader community. It should not be submitted in parallel to
any other conference or journal. All manuscripts will be reviewed and
judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, and
significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to
the conference. At least one author of an accepted paper must attend
SCA18 to present the paper.

• Proceedings
The conference proceedings will be published in Springer Nature’s
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). The camera-ready versions
need to be submitted via Springer Nature’s Online Conference Service
(OCS) system. The link to the submission site
Please contact the Program Chairs for any questions/clarifications.
