Scope and Topics

Submissions are welcomed on high-performance parallel and distributed computing topics including but not limited to: clouds, clusters, grids, Big Data, massively multicore, and global-scale computing systems. New scholarly research showing empirical and reproducible results in architectures, systems, and networks is strongly encouraged, as are experience reports of operational deployments that can provide insights for future research on HPDC applications and systems. All papers will be evaluated for their originality, technical depth and correctness, potential impact, relevance to the conference, and quality of presentation. Research papers must clearly demonstrate research contributions and novelty, while experience reports must clearly describe lessons learned and demonstrate impact.

In the context of high-performance parallel and distributed computing, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Systems, networks, and architectures for high-end computing
  • Massively multicore systems
  • Resource virtualization
  • Programming languages and environments
  • I/O, storage systems, and data management
  • Resource management and scheduling, including energy-aware techniques
  • Performance modeling and analysis
  • Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
  • Data-intensive computing
  • Applications of parallel and distributed computing

Paper Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit technical papers of at most 12 pages in PDF format, including figures and references. Papers should be formatted in the ACM Proceedings Style and submitted via the conference web site. No changes to the margins, spacing, or font sizes as specified by the style file are allowed. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, and will be incorporated into the ACM Digital Library. A limited number of papers will be accepted as posters.

Papers must be self-contained and provide the technical substance required for the program committee to evaluate their contributions. Papers should thoughtfully address all related work, particularly work presented at previous HPDC events. Submitted papers must be original work that has not appeared in and is not under consideration for another conference or a journal. See the ACM Prior Publication Policy for more details.

The first page of a paper should display the paper's author name(s) and affiliation(s). Reviewing of papers will be single-blind.
