SC19: The International Conference for High Performance Computing,
Networking, Storage, and Analysis
November 17-22, 2019, Denver, Colorado, USA

March 1, 2019 - Submissions open
April 2, 2019 - Deadline for abstracts
April 10, 2019 - Full paper deadline (firm deadline, no extensions)

The SC Papers program is the leading venue for presenting high-quality
original research, groundbreaking ideas, and compelling insights on
future trends in high performance computing, networking, storage, and
analysis. Technical papers are peer-reviewed and an Artifact Description
(to aid in reproducibility) is now mandatory for all papers submitted to
SC19. Submissions will be considered on any topic related to high
performance computing within the ten tracks below. A new track on
machine learning and HPC has been added this year.

Algorithms: The development, evaluation and optimization of scalable,
general-purpose, high performance algorithms.

Applications: The development and enhancement of algorithms, parallel
implementations, models, software and problem-solving environments for
specific applications that require high performance resources.

Architecture and Networks: All aspects of high-performance hardware
including the optimization and evaluation of processors and networks.

Clouds and Distributed Computing: All software aspects of clouds and
distributed computing that are related to HPC systems, including
software architecture, configuration, optimization and evaluation.

Data Analytics, Visualization, and Storage: All aspects of data
analytics, visualization, storage, and storage I/O related to HPC
systems. Submissions on work done at scale are highly favored.

Machine Learning and HPC: The development and enhancement of algorithms,
systems, and software for scalable machine learning utilizing
high-performance and cloud computing platforms.

Performance Measurement, Modeling, and Tools: Novel methods and tools
for measuring, evaluating, and/or analyzing performance for large scale

Programming Systems: Technologies that support parallel programming for
large-scale systems as well as smaller-scale components that will
plausibly serve as building blocks for next-generation HPC architectures.

State of the Practice: All R&D aspects of the pragmatic practices of
HPC, including operational IT infrastructure, services, facilities,
large-scale application executions and benchmarks.

System Software: Operating system (OS), runtime system and other
low-level software research & development that enables allocation and
management of hardware resources for HPC applications and services.
