*** Call for Papers for Supercomputing Frontiers Europe 2021 is open until
May 31. For more, read below. ***

The 7th International Supercomputing Frontiers conference (SCFE)
Date: July 19-23, 2021, virtually from Warsaw, Poland
URL: https://supercomputingfrontiers.eu/2021/ 

SCFE is a platform for the thought leaders from both academia and industry,
we strive to give an open space for the HPC community to interact and
discuss visionary ideas. The three-day-conference and two-day-of workshops
format is designed to combine knowledge and technology to deliver a compact
event for all the attendees. The main topics will be HPC/supercomputing, AI
and Quantum Computing. The program will include special sections featuring
developments in India and Africa. In order to accommodate participants from
multiple time-zones, the sessions will run between 7AM-11:30PM (San
Francisco, LA), 2PM-8:30PM (Warsaw, Lagos), 6:30PM-1:00AM (New Delhi) or
9PM-3:30AM (Tokyo). This year's conference is expected to draw attendees
from Academia, research institutions and industry all around the world.

Join us at the event where *no frontiers* are needed when talking about

This year's lineup of keynote speakers is: 
* Anders Dam Jensen - Executive Director,  EuroHPC Joint Undertaking
* Irene Qualters -  Associate Laboratory Director for Simulation and
Computation at Los Alamos National Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy
* Roberto Car - Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Princeton
University, Recipient of the 2020 ACM Gordon Bell Prize;
* Hiroaki Kitano - President at The Systems Biology Institute, Tokyo,
Professor at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate
University, Okinawa

Invited speakers include:
* Kate Keahey [Argonne National Laboratory]
* Bryce Meredig [Citrine Informatics]
* Neil Thompson [MIT Computer Science and A.I. Lab and Initiative]
* Sunita Chandrasekaran [University of Delaware]
* Jean-Marc Denis [European Processor Initiative]
* Onur Mutlu [ETH Zürich]
* Bogdan Rosa [Institute of Meteorology and Water Management, National
Research Institute, Poland]

more outstanding speakers will be announced soon.

Call for Papers deadline:
* Full Paper Submission Deadline: May 31, 2021

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another
journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:
* Full papers describing new results obtained from large scale computations
in any domain of science, engineering or computational humanities (e.g.
those based on graphs or networks), new computer processors and
architectures, interconnects and networks, quantum computing, AI, big data,
neuromorphic computing, omics- of all kinds, and all topics which push
boundaries of our understanding, and;
* Progress reports describing ongoing work on break-through projects related
to any of the topics of the conference.

Prospective authors are invited to submit paper electronically in PDF
format. Submitted papers will be subjected to a peer review and carefully
evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and
clarity of exposition. The official language of the conference is English.
All authors of accepted papers from the conference will be invited by the
SCFE2021 program committee to submit and publish their paper (after further
independent review) in a special issue of the international journal of
Supercomputing Frontiers and Innovations. For paper submission guidelines,
visit: https://supercomputingfrontiers.eu/2021/call-for-papers/

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Supercomputing applications in domains of critical impact in economic and
human terms, and especially those requiring computing resources approaching
* Computing at the Edge with an emphasis on high bandwidth networking,
distributed workflows, and streaming data;
* Convergence of HPC, AI, Big Data, Semantic and Graph methods;
* Hybrid HPC - Quantum Computing;
* HPC cloud and containerization;
* Heterogeneous computer fabrics for processors, memory systems, and
interconnection networks and their associated programming environments
(languages, compilers, libraries, and runtime systems);
* New processor architectures, optical interconnects, associative memories,
interconnect topologies and routing, and interplay of interconnect
topologies with algorithmic communication patterns;
* Omics and Systems Biology;
* Brain simulations, Neuromorphic computing, Connectome;
* Knowledge Graphs, graph computations, topology, space filling curves; and
Any other topic that pushes the boundaries of computational science and
supercomputing to exascale and beyond.
