The 17th Annual IFIP International Conference on Network and Parallel
Computing (NPC 2020)
Sept.28-30, 2020
Zhengzhou, Henan, China

High Performance Computing and Big Data are two main areas where NPC
2020 will provide a dynamic forum to explore, discuss and debate
state-of-the-art technology issues and challenges. High-performance
computers and big-data systems are tied inextricably to the broader
computing ecosystem and its designs and market adoption. We strongly
believe that the stakes are high and are far beyond the boundaries of
nations and continents. We invite all researchers around the world to
submit papers to NPC 2020.

We share the view that, during the past decade, the tools and cultures
of high-performance computing and big data analytics are diverging to
the detriment of both, and the international community should find a
unified path that can best serve the needs of a broad spectrum of
major application areas. Unlike other tools, which are limited to
particular scientific domains, computational modeling and data
analytics are applicable to all areas of science and engineering, as
they breathe life into the underlying mathematics of scientific
models. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

*Parallel and distributed applications and algorithms
--Parallel and distributed issues and opportunities on artificial
intelligence applications.
--Parallel algorithms for computational and data-enabled scientific,
engineering, biological and medical applications.
--Parallel algorithms for accelerators, neuromorphic architectures,
and other emerging architectures.

*Parallel and distributed architectures and systems
-- Domain-Specific Accelerators for AI, deep learning and applications
in industry sectors (such as health: genomics, finance: block chain,
and others)
-- Non-traditional Computing Technology
(Quantum/Optical/Superconducting computers)
--Emerging architectures and systems at all scales, from embedded to cloud.
--Systems for enabling parallelism at an extreme scale.
--Power-efficient and green computing systems.
--Neuromorphic architectures and cognitive computing accelerators.
--Heterogeneous multicore architectures and accelerators.
--In-Memory and near-data computing.
--Network and interconnect architectures.
--Storage systems in novel big data architectures.

*Parallel and distributed software environments and tools
--Programming models and compilation for existing and emerging platforms.
--Dataflow programming models, frameworks, languages and environments
for data-enabled platforms.
--Virtualization of machines, networks, and storage.
--I/O, file systems, and data management.
--Resource management, scheduling, and load balancing.

Authors should submit the full version of the paper July 1st, 2020,
AOE. The full version should be a PDF file following the submission
guidelines that will be made available at the submission website.
Papers should be submitted for blind review. New-idea papers as well
as papers that significantly advance established areas are strongly
encouraged. Submission issues should be directed to program chairs,
Guangming Tan and Guang R. Gao. We will publish top papers from NPC
2020 in a special issue of the International Journal of Parallel
Programming (IJPP), CCF Transactions on High Performance Computing,
and the proceedings will be published as part of Springer LNCS.

*Important Dates:
--Paper Submissions Due: July 12, 2020, AOE *
--Results Notification: August 12, 2020 *
--Camera-ready Version: August 23th, 2020 *

*Manuscript submission
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results and
experience are solicited. All paper submissions will be handled
electronically via EasyChair:

Papers must not exceed 12 pages in LNCS format. Authors must register
and submit their paper through the online submission system. If you
have problems accessing the system, e-mail your submission to:
tgm at ict.ac.cn
