Second Combined Workshop on Interactive and Urgent High-Performance Computing

         In conjunction with ISC23
                May 25, 2023
  Congress Center Hamburg, Messe Hamburg, Germany

Submission deadline: March 24, 2023 (AOE)
Author notification: April 10, 2023

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 ISC23 workshop proceedings.

This workshop will bring together stakeholders, researchers, and practitioners
from across the HPC community who are working, or interested, in the fields of
interactive HPC and the use of supercomputing for urgent decision-making.
Success stories, case studies, and best practices will be shared across the
two themes with a view to enhancing the communities' activities and
identifying new opportunities for collaboration.  The challenges associated
with interactive and urgent HPC are difficult ones, and productively
supporting these capabilities requires a number of advances across a range of
technical, policy, and even sociological realms. While there are multiple
efforts to use HPC for disaster response, and progress has been made on
interactivity in HPC, the effort is largely disjointed, piecemeal, and done
on an institute-by-institute basis. With so much replication of effort, there
is significant value to be unlocked if the SC community can come together to
address the issues relevant to both interactive and urgent HPC.

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

* Example use-cases and case-studies that use HPC for interactivity
and/or urgent decision making
* Techniques for integrating HPC workflows with data driven approaches
* Approaches to verify and validate unreliable real-time data, for
instance from sensors, IoT, and satellites
* System design for data reduction and pre-processing at source, for
instance using edge computing and heterogeneous resources such as
* Implementation experiences and lessons learned by staff at HPC centers
* Algorithmic techniques to guarantee result generation in specific
time frames, such as result refinement which generates more accurate
results as time progresses
* Studies of leveraging HPC for workloads with real-time time constraints
* Changes to existing HPC technologies and policies that are required
to support using HPC interactively
* The ability for HPC codes to adapt their resource requirements
dynamically, for instance via elastic compute
* Visualization and presentation techniques to support rapid and
accurate urgent decision making by the end user
* Reduction and feature extraction of results to highlight critical
issues of interest
* Complimenting results with provenance data for additional context
and certainty
* Maintaining security while providing interactivity in supercomputing
* Strategies for leveraging interactivity for reproducible science
* Impact of increased interactivity on how HPC centers operate

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

Authors of selected papers will be invited to speak at the workshop and
to submit their papers for publication in ISC23 workshop proceedings.
