Call for Symposia, Tracks, Workshops and Special Sessions
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
July 18 – July 22, 2016
Track Proposal Submission Deadline: February 01, 2016
PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The 2016 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2016) Organizing Committee invites proposals for symposia, tracks, workshops and special sessions to be held in conjunction with the 14th HPCS 2016 Conference.
Symposia, Tracks, Workshops and special sessions provide an opportunity for researchers to present results and participate in focused discussions of timely topics on various areas of high performance computing systems and technologies as well as their applications and use in Modeling and Simulation domains. They are to establish a common understanding of a certain aspect, to share experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other, to identify open problems and/or to explore future directions of research.
A symposium or track will typically go for more than one day. A workshop will typically be a full day (about 10-12 papers). A special session will typically have 4-6 papers. Tracks, symposia, workshops and special sessions may also have invited speakers, panels or forums, demos, etc. Symposia, tracks, workshops and special sessions will be fully refereed by at least three qualified reviewers and their accepted papers will be published as part of the HPCS 2016 proceedings and hence appear in the Digital Library.
The symposia, tracks, workshops and special sessions are considered part of the overall HPCS Conference and therefore included in the conference registration. For each symposium, track, workshop or special session, at least one organizer must commit to attending and running the respective track, symposium, workshop or special session.
Requirements for submission of a symposium, track, workshop or special session proposal:
All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail as a .doc attachment. Samples of previous proposals can be found on the HPCS 2015 web site at http://cisedu.us/rp/hpcs15 under the Symposia, Workshops and Special Sessions menu.
Tracks proposals will be reviewed by HPCS 2016 Tracks Chairs based on criteria such as: the likely interest and relevance of the track to HPCS and its attendees; the breadth and depth of the topic proposed, its timeliness, and objectives: the expertise and credential of the organizer(s) and the program committee; and the overall plan of the track.
If approved, the organizers agree to strictly follow all professional standards and ethics in performing their role as well as abide by the HPCS 2016 rules and policies, including its program and activities.
