With the rapid growth in computing and communications technology, the past decade has witnessed a proliferation of powerful parallel and distributed systems 
and an ever increasing demand for practice of high performance computing and communications (HPCC). HPCC has moved into the mainstream of computing 
and has become a key technology in determining future research and development activities in many academic and industrial branches, especially when the 
solution of large and complex problems must cope with very tight timing schedules.

Among a series of highly successful International Conferences on High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC), the HPCC-2020 conference is 
the 22nd edition of a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to address the resulting profound challenges and to present and 
discuss their new ideas, research results, applications and experience on all aspects of high performance computing and communications. IEEE HPCC-2020 is 
sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC).

The 2020 High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC-2020) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and 
practitioners to present state-of-art advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, and applications for the HPCC, 
as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future.
