We apologize if you received multiple copies of this Call for Papers
Please feel free to distribute it to those who might be interested

The 27th annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance
Computing, Data, and Analytics (HiPC 2020) will be held in Pune,
India, December 16-19, 2020. Complementing the main technical program,
HiPC workshops serve to broaden the technical scope of the conference
in emerging areas of high performance computing, networking, data
analytics, and their applications.
Held on the first day of the conference, HiPC workshops will typically
be half-day events although proposals for full-day workshops will also
be considered. Workshops should have contributed papers in their
program, and can have invited talks, poster sessions, and panel
discussions as part of their technical program. Workshop organizers
are responsible for preparing the call for papers to their workshops
and also peer-review all submissions in accordance with the conference
and IEEE guidelines.  Papers accepted for presentation at the HiPC
2020 workshops will be included in the workshops volume of the
conference proceedings with a separate ISBN (HiPCW 2020) and will be
distributed online. Post-conference, papers presented at the
conference and eligible for inclusion will be made available to the
IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Workshop Themes
The topics of the proposed workshop should complement those listed in
the main conference call for papers. Each workshop should be centered
around a coherent theme or topic related to HPC and/or scalable data
science; We particularly encourage workshop themes that relate to
emerging areas and/or emerging application contexts of societal value
(e.g., agriculture, energy, sustainability, workforce development).
Workshop proposals will need to clearly state the purpose and the
applications of the techniques in the abstract. Workshop proposers
will also need to clearly identify how they are going to attract
papers and speakers.

What/Where to Submit
Potential HiPC workshop organizers should submit a workshop proposal
that contains the items listed below. The proposal should also specify
steps to be taken to develop a high-quality program committee and
attract high-quality submissions to place the workshop(s) in a
competitive international landscape.
Workshops will be held on the first day of the conference, i.e.,
December 16th. Workshops may be proposed as a half-day program,
running for 3 hours in the morning or afternoon, or as a full day
program. In the case of the latter, organizers should explain how they
will attract sufficient participation to develop a full day program of
peer-reviewed papers.
Proposals to organize a workshop at HiPC 2020 should include:
* Description: title; topics to be addressed; goals; relevance and
significance to the main conference.
* Names, affiliations and contact information for organizers.
* Plans for soliciting submissions, and the process for selecting
papers to be presented at the workshop and included in the workshop
* Tentative names of Keynote/ invited speakers
* Tentative program outline, identifying key elements such as panels,
discussion sessions, poster sessions, invited talks, etc.
* Tentative list of PC members to be recruited
* A detailed timeline of the peer-review process

The proposal should not exceed three pages and should be submitted as
a pdf file to the HiPC Workshops Chairs at workshops at hipc.org.

FAQs sheet on the website.
