The 14th International Conference on High Performance Computing and Simulation (HPCS 2016) is a premier international conference on topics at the confluence of high performance and large scale computing systems, their use in modeling and simulation, their design, performance and use, and their impact, and related issues. Running annually since 2003, it currently attracts over 160 participants, including the best talent in industry, academia, and government research labs. The purpose of the conference is to identify challenging problems facing the development of future high performance computing systems and to shape up future research directions through the publication of applied and theoretical research findings of the highest quality. The program will foster collaboration and bridge the academic-industry-government gap in the high performance computing technologies & systems, Multicores, cloud computing, big data and data analytics, services computing, and several related and applied issues such as modeling and simulation, healthcare and bioinformatics, education, robotics and autonomous systems, emergency response, financial sector, and gamification communities. Attendees will hear about recent research results and be able to network with luminaries, researchers, and practitioners in the field.  HPCS 2016 which will be held in Innsbruck, Austria will attract some of the best researchers, practitioners and graduate students, from academic, industrial and government research institutions, and offer unparalleled opportunities for recruiting top talent.
