Fifth International Workshop on Interactive HPC (InteractiveHPC)

         In conjunction with ISC22
         June 2, 2022
         Congress Center Hamburg, Messe Hamburg, Germany

Twitter: @interactivehpc

Submission deadline: March 24, 2022 (AOE)
Author notification: April 14, 2022

We invite submission of 6-12 page papers that will be peer reviewed.

We welcome original research, work-in-progress papers, and position
papers related to the interactive usage of high-performance computing.
Accepted authors will both be invited to speak at the workshop and to
submit their papers for publication in ISC22 workshop proceedings.

Special Note: A portion of the workshop will be allocated to drafting a
position paper on the state of practice of interactive HPC, and invite
attendees to contribute.  This paper will explain opportunities and
challenges from the perspectives of users, administrators, and system
technologies; overview significant accomplishments in research
demonstrations, and prototypes; and discuss future research directions
for interactive HPC.

Interactive exploration and analysis of large data sets, intelligent
simulation workflows that combine interactive analysis and AI techniques
with modeling and simulation, interactive preparation and debugging of
large-scale scientific simulations, in-situ visualization, and
application steering are all compelling scenarios for High Performance
Computing systems. However, a range of technical, organizational, and
sociological challenges must be overcome to make these interactive
workflows mainstream in HPC centers: What simulation scenarios or
problem domains can benefit most from interactivity? How can we simplify
the toolchain? What center policies are needed to support highly
interactive workflows? The goal of this workshop is to bring together
domain scientists, tool developers, and HPC center administrators to
identify the scientific impact and technical challenges of highly
interactive access to HPC resources.

Call for Papers
We invite you to submit 6-12 page papers detailing original work or work
in progress.  Position papers are also welcome.  Appropriate topic areas

* Systems software: Tools and environments for interactive use of HPC
* Workflow and data driven approaches for HPC
* Use cases, user stories, and user demos of interactivity in supercomputing
* Implementation experiences and lessons learned by staff at HPC centers
* Maintaining security while providing interactivity in supercomputing
* Managing resource allocation (static or dynamic) for interactive use
* Role of edge services in support of interactive supercomputing
* Networking challenges in interactive supercomputing (internal,
external, SDN, etc.)
* Strategies for leveraging interactivity for reproducible science
* Impact of increased interactivity on how HPC centers operate
* Hybrid interactive/non-interactive workflows on supercomputers
* Interactive supercomputing for real-time experimental data analysis
* Intelligent simulation workflows that utilize interactive analytics or
AI techniques to optimize, enhance, or otherwise improve modeling and
simulation results and performance

Paper Submission Guidelines
Please submit 6-12 page papers on original work, work-in-progress, or
position papers. All papers should be formatted according to Springer
LNCS guidelines (see
and submitted via EasyChair at

Authors of selected papers will be invited to speak at the workshop and
to submit their papers for publication in ISC22 workshop proceedings.
