                The 27th International ACM Symposium on
          High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing
                 Phoenix, AZ, United States - June 11-15, 2018

                      Sponsored by ACM SIGARCH

The ACM International Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and
Distributed Computing (HPDC) is the premier annual conference for
presenting the latest research on the design, implementation,
evaluation, and the use of parallel and distributed systems for
high-end computing. The 27th HPDC will take place in Tempe, AZ on June
11-15, 2018.


Abstract due: January 17, 2018
Paper due: January 24, 2018
Author Notifications: March 29, 2018
Camera ready: April 12, 2018
Conference dates: June 11 - 15, 2018

Submissions are welcomed on high-performance parallel and distributed
computing (HPDC) topics including but not limited to: clouds,
clusters, grids, big data, massively multicore, and extreme-scale
computing systems. Submissions that focus on the operating systems,
runtime environments, architectures, and networks of high end
computing systems are particularly encouraged. Experience reports of
operational deployments that provide significantly novel insights for
future research on HPDC applications and systems will also receive
special consideration. All papers will be evaluated for their
originality, technical depth and correctness, potential impact,
relevance to the conference, and quality of presentation. Research
papers must clearly demonstrate research contributions and novelty,
while experience reports must clearly describe lessons learned and
demonstrate impact.
In the context of high-performance parallel and distributed computing,
the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

·        Operating systems, networks, and architectures
·        High performance runtime environments
·        Massively multicore systems, including heterogeneous systems
·        Datacenter technology, resource virtualization
·        Programming languages, APIs, and system interoperation approaches
·        File and storage systems, I/O, and data management
·        Big data stacks and big data ecosystems
·        Resource management and scheduling, including energy-aware techniques
·        Performance modeling, analysis, and engineering
·        Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
·        Operational guarantees, and risk assessment and management
·        Traditional and emerging applications and services that
depend upon high- end computing


Note: The review process is not double-blinded; the authors can reveal
their identities in the paper (It's also OK to conceal them if they so

Authors are invited to submit technical papers of at most 12 pages in
PDF format, including figures and references. Papers should be
formatted in the ACM Proceedings Style and submitted via the
conference web site. Accepted papers will appear in the conference
proceedings, and will be incorporated into the ACM Digital Library.
Submitted papers must be original work that has not appeared in and is
not under consideration for another conference or a journal.
