Dear colleague,

Don't miss the opportunity to join us at *ISC High Performance 2022* in 
early June, in Hamburg, Germany!

Please consider submitting your research paper to one of our five 
tracks! These tracks provide excellent opportunities for scientists and 
engineers from 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.

To better align with the timelines of other events, we have a final 
(short) extension of the deadlines:

*Abstract deadline: 	   December 3, 2021, 11:59 pm, AoE*
*Full submission deadline: December 10, 2021, 11:59 pm, AoE*

Papers accepted to ISC 2022 will result in:
*+ A complimentary conference pass for one presenter +
+ The chance to win the Hans-Meuer best-paper award (€ 3,000) +*

See below for all the details about ISC 2022. Even more details and the 
big, red, "Submit" button are to be found here:

Looking forward to your submission!

Ana-Lucia Varbanescu and Abhinav Bhatele



The ISC research paper sessions provide world-class opportunities for

*Submission (abstracts: December 3, full papers: December 10, 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
