Proposal Submission Deadline: March 17, 2016 - Extended


The 2016 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2016) is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in high performance and large scale computing systems, their use in modeling and simulation, their design, performance and use, and their impact. The Conference will be held on July 18 - 22, 2016 in Innsbruck, Austria.

As in every year, the Conference will feature a state-of-the-art set of tutorial presentations. The HPCS 2016 Organizing Committee invites proposals and ideas for tutorials to be held as part of the Conference. All tutorials will address timely, important, and relevant subject areas within high performance computing and simulation. Preference will be given to proposals at an introductory to medium high level, accessible to a wide audience. Typically, 2-4 hour tutorials are planned but others will be considered. Proposals will be evaluated by members of the Organizing Committee.

If you are interested in presenting a tutorial at this conference or have an idea for a tutorial you would like to see offered please contact the Tutorials Co-Chairs.

TOPICS INCLUDE (but are not limited to):

A proposal to present a tutorial should contain the following information:

  • Tutorial Title

  • Full Name(s), Affiliation(s) and Contact Information of the Instructor(s)

  • Extended Abstract (300 - 500 words) detailing (a) the technical subject, (b) its importance, (c) its relevance and benefits to HPCS 2016 attendees, (d) tutorial goals

  • Detailed tutorial outline in a medium level of granularity, including sections and subsections as well as bibliography

  • Intended audience profile and prerequisites

  • Expected duration of the tutorial

If the tutorial or its earlier version has been given before, please indicate those respective events in full (dates, content, etc.). This is an important requirement.


Proposers of accepted tutorials are given the opportunity to submit a tutorial paper. The content of a tutorial paper must be based on the material covered by the tutorial and must not exceed 10 pages. The required format for the camera-ready submission is posted on the Conference Web site. The author kit containing templates for the required style can be found at the Conference’s web site at

Submitted tutorial papers will be reviewed by the Tutorials Chairs and members of the Organizing Committee prior to publication. The conference organizers have the right to refuse publication of tutorial papers if, for example, the technical quality of the paper is insufficient or the content of the paper does not match the content of the tutorial. Tutorial papers will be published in the conference proceedings and hence will be disseminated through the Digital Library.
