                         SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED

      Fourth international workshop on Interactive HPC (InteractiveHPC)

             In conjunction with ISC 2020
             June 25, 2020, Marriott Hotel Frankfurt


Submission deadline has been extended to April 30th, 2020 (AoE)
Author notification: May 15, 2020

We invite the submission of three page abstracts which will be peer
reviewed. Accepted authors will both be invited to speak at the workshop
and to submit full papers for publication in the ISC 2020 workshop
proceedings with Springer.

Interactive exploration and analysis of large data sets, intelligent
simulation workflows that combine interactive analysis and AI techniques
with modeling and simulation, interactive preparation and debugging of
large-scale scientific simulations, in-situ visualization, and
application steering are all compelling scenarios for High Performance
Computing sytems. However, a range of technical, organizational, and
sociological challenges must be overcome to make these interactive
workflows mainstream in HPC centers: What simulation scenarios or
problem domains can benefit most from interactivity? How can we simplify
the toolchain? What center policies are needed to support highly
interactive workflows? The goal of this workshop is to bring together
domain scientists, tool developers, and HPC center administrators to
identify the scientific impact and technical challenges of highly
interactive access to HPC resources.

Call for Abstracts
We invite you to submit three page abstracts detailing original work in
the following areas:

* Systems software: Tools and environments for interactive use of HPC
* Workflow and data driven approaches for HPC
* Use cases, user stories, and user demos of interactivity in
* Implementation experiences and lessons learned by staff at HPC centers
* Maintaining security while providing interactivity in supercomputing
* Managing resource allocation (static or dynamic) for interactive use
* Role of edge services in support of interactive supercomputing
* Networking challenges in interactive supercomputing (internal,
external, SDN, etc.)
* Strategies for leveraging interactivity for reproducible science
* Impact of increased interactivity on how HPC centers operate
* Hybrid interactive/non-interactive workflows on supercomputers
* Interactive supercomputing for real-time experimental data analysis
* Intelligent simulation workflows that utilize interactive analytics or
AI techniques to optimize, enhance, or otherwise improve modeling and
simulation results and performance

Abstract Submission Guidelines
We invite submissions of extended abstracts which are 3 pages or less
via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=interactivehpc2020

Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to speak at the workshop
and to submit full papers for publication in the ISC 2020 workshop
proceedings with Springer. The proceedings will appear as
post-conference workshop proceedings. The idea behind post-conference
proceedings is that they give the authors the flexibility to adjust
their contributions slightly based on the feedback given during the
