The ISC research paper sessions provide world-class opportunities for
engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to
present and discuss issues, trends, and results that will shape the
future of High Performance Computing (HPC), Networking, Storage, Machine
Learning, and Data Analytics.
Submitted research papers will be reviewed by the ISC 2022 Research
Papers Committee, which is headed by Ana Lucia Varbanescu, University of
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, as Chair, and Abhinav Bhatele, University of
Maryland, USA as Deputy Chair.

The Research Papers Committee encourages the submission of high-quality
papers reporting original work in theoretical, experimental, and
industrial research & development. The ISC submission process will be
divided into five tracks this year, as follows:

*Architectures, Networks, and Storage*
- Next-generation processors, accelerators, and chips for HPC
- Heterogeneous system design
- Network technology & architecture
- Domain-specific architectures
- Memory technologies & systems
- File systems & storage architecture
- Databases & data-intensive applications
- In situ data analysis
- Big data and data science at scale
- Exascale computing   
*HPC Algorithms & Applications*
- Novel algorithms for HPC
- Algorithmic-based fault tolerance
- Communication-reducing & synchronization-reducing algorithms
- Time-space trade-offs in algorithms and applications
- High-performance applications
- Energy-efficient algorithms & apps
- Convergence of simulations & big data
- Scalability on future architectures
- Workflow management
- Coupled simulations
- Implementations on GPUs & accelerators

*Programming Environments & Systems Software        
- Parallel programming models, languages, and compilers
- Tools and libraries for performance & productivity at scale
- Scalable application frameworks
- Runtime systems for HPC
- Resilience / System robustness
- Operating systems & workload management
- Tools for system monitoring & administration
- Power, energy management, and scheduling

*Machine Learning, AI, and Emerging Technologies*
- AI/Machine learning & HPC
- HPC system design for AI & machine learning
- I/O, domain-specific languages, and tools for scalable machine learning
- Applied machine learning studies
- Uncertainty quantification
- Quantum computing architecture, algorithms, and software
- Other cutting edge or emerging HPC technologies

*Performance Modeling, Evaluation, and Analysis*     
- Performance models and prediction
- Performance engineering and optimizations
- Performance measurement tools and techniques
- Power and energy consumption, measurement, and modeling

Note: Submissions on other innovative aspects of high-performance
computing are also welcome. You will be asked to pick a primary and a
secondary track from the five above for your submission.

*Submission (abstracts: November 22; papers: November 29, 2021)*

Submission Guidelines:
Submissions will take place in two stages:
(1) submission of the paper’s title, authors, and abstract for planning
(2) submission of the paper itself.

Paper submissions must be formatted using LNCS style (see Springer’s
- Single-column format
- Maximum 18 pages (including figures and references)
- Use Springer’s LaTeX document class or Word template (see Springer’s
Proceedings Guidelines)
- Papers must be suitable for double-blind review (see ISC High
Performance Double-Blind Review Guidelines)
- The PC reserves the right to reject incorrectly formatted papers
- Papers submitted for the Research Papers track should not have been
previously published or under review for a different venue.

*Review Process*
- Each paper is expected to receive a minimum of 4 reviews
- Double-blind peer-review will be used
- Papers will be evaluated based on novelty, fundamental insights,
clarity of presentation, and potential for long-term impact

*Rebuttal phase (January 19 – 26, 2022)*
- Initial reviewer comments will be made available to authors
- Authors can respond to clarify misunderstandings and answer questions
- Rebuttals will be submitted in written format and will have a tight
- Authors will receive additional instructions via email

*Final decision (February 9, 2022)*
- All reviews and rebuttals will be considered by the paper’s track
- Live reviewer discussions will occur during the research paper
committee meeting
- A consensus-driven approach will be used to select the strongest papers
- Notification of the papers’ outcomes will be sent to authors after the
PC meeting

- ISC 2022 is planned as an in-person conference from May 29 to June 2,
2022 in Hamburg, Germany. By submitting a research paper the submitter
agrees that one of the authors of the paper will present the work at ISC
2022 in Hamburg, Germany. In case circumstances that the
submitter/speaker cannot control prevent them from attending the event,
the submitter/speaker should contact ISC organizers and the Research
paper chair as soon as possible to discuss different options.
- The research paper sessions will be held from Monday, May 30 through
Wednesday, June 1, 2022.
- All research paper sessions will be streamed and recorded.
Presentations will be available within the event platform for registered
attendees only.
- Paper presenters need to be registered ISC 2022 participants. For
accepted papers, one author is eligible for a complimentary conference
participation pass.
- Travel, accommodation, registration fees for other authors, and other
such expenses will not be covered by the ISC organizers.

All accepted research papers will be published in the Springer Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.  There are no fees related to
the publication of accepted papers by Springer. The papers will also be
available to download from Springer’s website for a limited time after
ISC 2022.
Authors may also opt to publish open access versions of their papers
through Springer if desired—please refer to Springer’s website for
further information and pricing.
Paper submissions are required to be no more than 18 pages in LNCS
style. For the camera-ready version, authors are automatically granted
two extra pages to incorporate reviewer comments.
Volumes published as part of the LNCS series are made available to the
following indexing services:
- Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI), part of Clarivate
Analytics’ Web of Science
- EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases)
- ACM Digital Library
- Google Scholar
- IO-Port
- MathSciNet
- Scopus
- Zentralblatt MATH

The ISC organizers will make the presentation materials available within
the event platform for registered attendees only.
