ISC 2018 Call for Research Papers
ISC High Performance is dedicated to tackling HPC technological development
and its application in scientific fields, as well as its adoption in
The research papers track at ISC 2018 is calling for submissions. The ISC
organizers will grant a 100% discount on the conference day pass to one
presenter per paper for the day of their presentation (or an equivalent
discount on the full conference pass).
The ISC organizers as well as the German Gauss Center for Supercomputing will
again sponsor the call for research papers with two awards for outstanding
papers: the Hans Meuer Award and the GAUSS Award.
Submission Deadline: Friday, December 22, 2017, 11:59 pm AoE
Author Rebuttals: Monday, February 19 – Thursday, February 22, 2018

Paper sessions: Monday, June 25 - Wednesday, June 27, 2018
Areas of Interest
We encourage the submission of high-quality papers reporting original work in
theoretical, experimental, and industrial research and development. The ISC
submission process will be divided into seven tracks this year for better
Architectures & Networks
Future design concepts of HPC systems
Trends in the HPC chip market
Data, Storage & Visualization
From big data to smart data
Memory systems for HPC & big data
File systems & tape libraries
Data intensive applications
Highly scalable applications
Convergence of simulations and big data
Scability on future architectures
Implementations on SIMT accelerators
Innovative algorithms, discrete or continuous
Algorithmic-based fault tolerance
Time-space trade-offs in algorithms
Programming Models & Systems Software
Parallel programming paradigms
Tools and libraries for performance and productivity
Monitoring & administration tools
Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
Neural networks and HPC
Machine learning and HPC
AI and machine learning-oriented hardware
Devising benchmarks for machine learning
Performance modeling & Measurement
Performance prediction and engineering
Note: Submissions on other innovative aspects of high performance computing
are also welcome. You will be asked to pick a primary and a secondary track
from the seven above for your submission.
Submission & Review Process
Papers need to be submitted via the ISC 2018 submission site at
https://ssl.linklings.net/conferences/isc_hpc/ by Friday, December 22, 2017.
We accept only submissions which are formatted correctly in LNCS style (single
column format) using either the LaTeX document class or Word template. For
details on the author guidelines, please refer to Springer's website.
Incorrectly formatted papers will be excluded from the reviewing process.
Paper submissions are required to be within 18 pages in the above mentioned
LNCS style. This includes all figures and references.
Submitted research papers will be reviewed by the ISC 2018 Research Papers
Committee, which is headed by Prof. David Keyes, KAUST, as Chair and Dr.-Ing.
Carsten Trinitis, TU Munich, as Deputy Chair and Professor Rio Yokota, Tokyo
Institute of Technology, as Proceedings Chair and Dr. Michèle Weiland, EPCC,
as Proceedings Deputy Chair. Each paper will be peer-reviewed double-blind by
at least 4 reviewers and should be submitted in a form suitable for anonymous
review. Papers will be evaluated by reviewers based on their novelty,
fundamental insights and potential for long-term contribution.
At an in-person Research Papers Committee meeting, each paper will be
discussed before the acceptance decisions are made.
Terms & Conditions
By submitting a paper, you agree to present the paper at ISC 2018 in
Frankfurt, Germany. Paper presenters need to be registered ISC 2018
participants. The ISC organizers will grant a 100% discount on the conference
day pass to one presenter per paper for the day of their presentation (or an
equivalent discount on the full conference pass). Travel, accommodation,
registration fees and other such costs will not be covered by the ISC
