[Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP]

ISC High Performance 2022 Conference will be held in the beautiful city of
Hamburg from May 29 to June 2.

We are committed to hosting ISC 2022 on-site and will fulfill all the
safety standards prescribed by the German government and health
authorities pertaining to Covid-19. Therefore, we strongly encourage
submissions from people who plan to attend the conference in person.

Like-minded ISC attendees come together in our informal Birds-of-a-Feather
(BoF) sessions to discuss current HPC topics, network and share their thoughts
and ideas. Each 60-minute BoF session addresses a different topic
and is led by one or more individuals with expertise in the area. BoFs are
different in nature from panels, technical paper sessions, tutorials,
vendor talks, and other, more presentation-oriented parts of the ISC
program. Proposals that cannot demonstrate a clear concept for the intended
interactivity of their BoF will be rejected. During and after the conference,
attendees will be asked for feedback on all program components,
including BoFs. The amount of interactivity will be given special attention
in the survey. Submitted BoF proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2022 BoFs

Submission Deadline: February 2, 2022, 11:59 pm AoE
Notification of Acceptance: March 3, 2022
