ISC 2020 CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS: Submission deadline November 4, 2019

The ISC research paper sessions provide world-class opportunities for
engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to present
and discuss issues, trends and results that will shape the future of high
performance computing (HPC), Networking, Storage and AI/Machine Learning.

Submitted research paper proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2020
Research Papers Committee, which is headed by Prof. Saday Sadayappan,
University of Utah and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA, with
Brad Chamberlain, CRAY, USA, as Deputy Chair as well as Guido Juckeland,
Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf as Proceedings Chair and with Hatem
Ltaief, KAUST, as Proceedings Deputy Chair., as Proceedings Deputy Chair.

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 research papers: the *Hans Meuer Award* and the *GCS Award*.
Each accepted paper will be considered for the awards. The Hans Meuer Award
winner will receive a *cash prize of 5,000 Euros*.

*Free conference day pass for presenter*

All accepted research papers will be published in the Springer Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS] series in Gold Open Access.
Gold OA makes the final version of a research paper freely and permanently
accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Paper submissions
are required to be within 18 pages in LNCS style. For the camera-ready
version, authors are automatically granted one extra page to incorporate
reviewer comments.

Volumes published as part of the LNCS series are made available to the
following indexing services: Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI),
part of Clarivate Analytics Web of Science, EI Engineering Index (Compendex
and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port,
MathSciNet, Scopus, Zentralblatt MATH.]

The Research Papers Committee encourages 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
eight tracks this year.
