The 29th annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance
Computing, Data, and Analytics (HiPC 2022) will be held from December
18-21, 2022. 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 (3 - 3.5hrs) although proposals for full-day (6 - 7
hrs) 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 2022 workshops will be included in the
workshops volume of the conference proceedings with a separate ISBN
(HiPCW 2022) and will be distributed online; unless the workshop
organizers want it otherwise. 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. In case, submitting a full day
workshop, the 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 2022 should include:
- Description: title; topics to be addressed; goals; relevance and
significance to the main conference.
- Names, affiliations and contact information for organizers, along
with prior experience in organizing such events, if any.
- 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.
