*====================CALL FOR PAPERS====================*

Dear Colleagues,

The journal Electronics (ISSN 2079-9292) has currently an open Special 
Issue entitled "High-Performance Computer Architectures and 
Applications". You may consider the opportunity to submit your valuable 
work to this Open Access Journal. Recently, its IF has increased to 
2.412, ranking 125/266 (Q2) in 'Engineering, Electrical & Electronic' 
according to JCR report 2020.


HPC offers stunning opportunities to solve complex problems thanks to 
the use of advanced hardware platforms, parallelization, distributed 
programming, and algorithms. Computational power rises steadily due to 
continuous evolution in computer architectures, networks, and software. 
However, it is a great challenge to take advantage of this huge amount 
of resources.

Thanks to the creative vision of scientists and engineers that are one 
step ahead of the latest technologies, they can offer new solutions that 
finally impact on the wellbeing of our society. A combination of these 
technologies and algorithms can unravel a broad spectrum of tough 
problems with the use of simulation models, optimization techniques, 
extensive dataset processing, or machine learning. Furthermore, related 
issues have to be considered, such as energy-efficient solutions, secure 
frameworks, scalability, load balancing, I/O systems, and cloud 
platforms, among others.

This Special Issue aims to gather innovative contributions, with new 
approaches, proposals, techniques, and applications in this field. The 
topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- High-performance computer architecture
- High-performance computer system software
- Multicore and multithreaded architecture methods
- Applications related to high-performance computing
- Distributed systems
- High-performance computing in cloud platforms
- Data-intensive computing
- Optimal energy solutions
- Energy-aware scheduling
- Accelerators such as GPUs and TPUs

All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published 
continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed 
together on the special issue website. Manuscripts can be submitted 
until the deadline: 30 April 2021.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are 
invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 
words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on the website.
