Context and scope:
The SC tutorials program is one of the highlights of the SC Conference 
and it is one of the largest tutorial programs at any computing-related
conference in the world. It offers attendees the chance to learn from 
and to
interact with leading experts in the most popular areas of high 
computing (HPC), networking, storage, and analysis.

SC tutorials cover a wide range of topics. The tutorials committee is
soliciting proposals for full-day (six hours) or a half-day (three 
tutorials on topics in the following areas (as well as others):
* Basic and introductory topics for expanding broader engagement
* Applications and application frameworks
* Algorithms, numerical methods, and libraries
* Software engineering for portable performance and scalability
* Parallel programming methods, models, languages and environments
* Software tools for accelerators (co-processors, GPGPUs, FPGA, etc.)
* Algorithmic, tools and runtime support for heterogeneous systems
* Performance evaluation and/or optimization tools
* Debugging and correctness tools
* High performance I/O, storage, archive, and file systems
* Scalable data mining and machine learning
* High performance networking technology
* Scientific and information visualization
* Systems, tools and techniques for energy efficiency
* Large systems administration and/or resource management
* Computer and network security
* Fault-tolerance, reliability, maintainability, and adaptability
* High performance computer architecture
* Clusters and distributed systems
* Embedded- and/or reconfigurable systems
* "Hot Topics" of current interest to the SC18 community

Review Process:
Submissions will be reviewed by the SC18 tutorials committee, which will
consider among other factors:
* Insights offered, in breadth and/or depth
