The organizers of the 35th ACM International Conference on
Supercomputing (ICS-2021) call for proposals for workshops and
tutorials to be held virtually in conjunction with ICS-2021 on June 14

Proposals for both half-day and full-day tutorials and workshops are
solicited on any topic that is relevant to the ICS audience.

Tutorials that focus on tools and techniques that enable research
across layers of the computational stack are strongly encouraged.
Tutorials may have one of the following goals:

Describe an important piece of research infrastructure
Educate the community on an emerging topic

Workshops should provide forums for discussion among researchers and
practitioners on focused topics or emerging research areas relevant to
the community of High Performance Computing (HPC). Workshop organizers
may structure workshops as they prefer, including invited talks, panel
discussions, presentations of work in progress, fully peer-reviewed
papers, or some combination of the above. Workshops could be scheduled
for half a day or a full day on June 14th, 2021, depending on
interests, space constraints, and the organizer’s preference.
Organizers should design workshops for approximately 20-40
participants, to balance the impact and effective discussion.

The deadline for submission of a proposal is February 14th, 2021. We
strongly encourage workshop and tutorials organizers to submit their
proposals early so that there is enough time to organize the program
before the conference. We also encourage proposals for new events that
have not been held before. Notification of acceptance will be on
February 28 2021.

Workshop and tutorials proposals should include the following items:

The title (and acronym, if applicable) of the workshop/tutorial
1-3 page description (for evaluation), including:

Scope and objectives
Topics of interest to be covered
Scheduling and format of the sessions of the workshop (papers, invited
talks, panel discussions, etc.) or tutorial (lecture, hands-on, etc.)
Proposed duration (full day, half day)
How the workshop/tutorial will work in the virtual format (videos,
zoom live call, etc.) and how to foster interactivity and discussions
in such scenario.
Description (one paragraph) on the relevance ot the topics for ICS
Target audience
Expected number of attendees
If the workshop/tutorial has been held previously, the location (i.e.,
conference), date, number of attendees, link to website (if

The names and affiliations of the workshop/tutorial organizers, and if
applicable, the name and affiliation of the PC chair, and of a
significant portion of the program committee
A description (0.5-1 page) of the theme of the workshop/tutorial,
suitable for tutorial publicity
A publicity plan for attracting submissions and attendees
Follow-up plans (if any) to disseminate the ideas from the
workshop/tutorial. For example, through position paper or
special-issues in a journal

Please, send proposals by e-mail to the ICS-2021 Workshops and
Tutorials Co-Chairs list,
