HiPC 2019 Call for Workshop Proposals

The 26th annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance
Computing, Data, and Analytics (HiPC 2019) will be held in Hyderabad,
India, December 17-20, 2019. Complementing the main technical program, HiPC
workshops serve to broaden the technical scope of the conference in
emerging areas of high performance computing, networking, data analytics,
and their applications.
Held on the first day of the conference, HiPC workshops will typically be
half-day events although proposals for full-day workshops will also be
considered. The papers accepted for presentation at the HiPC 2019 workshops
will be included in the workshops volume of the conference proceedings with
a separate ISBN (HiPCW 2019), and will be distributed online.
Post-conference, papers presented at the conference and eligible for
inclusion will be made available to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Workshop Themes
The topics of the  proposed workshop should complement those listed in the
main conference call for papers.Each workshop should be centered around a
coherent theme or topic related to HPC and/or scalable data science; We
particularly encourage workshop themes that relate to emerging areas and/or
emerging application contexts of societal value (e.g., agriculture, energy,
sustainability, workforce development).

Workshop proposals will need to clearly state the purpose and the
applications of the techniques in the abstract. Workshop proposers will
also need to clearly identify how they are going to attract papers and
speakers. The proposal should not exceed three pages and should be
submitted as a pdf file to the HiPC Workshops Chairs at workshops at hipc.org .
