Dec 19 - 22, 2010 - HiPC Conference in Goa, India

The 17th annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing (HiPC 2010) will be held in Goa, India, during December 19-22, 2010. It will serve as a forum to present the current work by researchers from around the world. HiPC 2010 will focus on the design and analysis of high performance computing and networking systems and their scientific, engineering, and commercial applications. In addition to technical sessions consisting of contributed papers, the conference will include invited presentations, a student research symposium, tutorials, and vendor presentations.

The 16th meeting, held in Kochi, India in December 2009, had 49 contributed papers that were selected from 261 submissions from 20 countries, and about 225 participants attended the meeting. The 15th meeting, held in Bangalore, India in December 2008, had 46 contributed papers that were selected from over 317 submissions and approximately 250 participants attended the meeting. The 14th meeting, held in Goa, India in December 2007, had 52 contributed papers that were selected from over 253 submissions from 31 countries and approximately 300 participants attended the meeting. The HiPC attendance is approximately 300 with a good mix of participants from India and the rest of the world.

    Manuscript submission will start on April 4, 2010. Manuscript submission procedures will then be available over the Web at Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file. Manuscripts must be received by May 15, 2010. Manuscripts should demonstrate current research in any area of high performance computing. All manuscripts will be reviewed and will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees.

    Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered.

    Student Research Symposium

    HiPC 2010 will feature the third student research symposium on High Performance Computing (HPC) aimed at stimulating and fostering student research, and providing an international forum to highlight student research accomplishments. The symposium will also expose students to the best practices in HPC in academia and industry. The one-day symposium will feature brief presentations by student authors on their research, followed by a poster exhibit. Short invited talks by leading HPC researchers/ practitioners will be included in the program. The Conference Reception and Student Symposium Poster Exhibits will provide an opportunity for students to interact with HPC researchers and practitioners (and recruiters) from academia and industry. To be considered, students should submit a 5 page extended abstract of their research. Submission procedures will be available at the Student Symposium web site, accessible from, after August 17, 2010. For additional details, please see the conference web site or contact the Symposium Co-Chairs.
