The 20th annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing (HiPC 2013) will be held at the Park Plaza Bengaluru in Bengaluru (Bangalore), India, during December 18-December 21, 2013. It will serve as a forum for researchers from around the world to present their current research efforts and findings, and will act as a venue for stimulating discussions and highlighting high performance computing (HPC) related activities in Asia. The conference has a history of attracting participation from reputed researchers from all over the world.

HiPC 2013 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 in the industry, user and research symposium.

Historically the conference has had an acceptance rate of approximately 20%. In the past couple of years the conference has seen over 450 attendees. The conference is co-sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP) and the HiPC educational trust.

Venue and Meeting Information

HiPC will be held at Bengaluru (Bangalore), India. The advance program will be available in early August 2013. Please check the conference website at for updated information.

Manuscript Guidelines

Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed 10 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm) wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified text). File templates are available at not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is English.

Manuscript submission has started on April 2, 2013. The submission site is now online at Alternatively, log into EDAS at, select 'Submit paper' and then 'HiPC'13'. Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file. Manuscripts must be received by June 8, 2013. 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. Authors may contact the Program Chair at the address below for further information or clarification. Notification of review decisions will be mailed by August 6, 2013.

Student Research Symposium

HiPC 2013 will feature the Fifth Student Research Symposium (SRS) 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 part of the program. The HiPC Conference Reception and Student Symposium Poster Exhibits will provide an opportunity for students to interact with HPC researchers, practitioners and recruiters from academia and industry. To be considered, students should submit a 5 page extended abstract of their research. Submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by the program committee for technical quality, innovative contributions, and presentation. Submission instructions will be available at the Student Symposium web site, accessible from after , 2013 . For additional details, please visit the conference web site or contact the Symposium Co-Chairs.
