2020 IEEE High-Performance Extreme Computing Conference(HPEC \’20)
Twenty-fourth Annual HPEC Conference
22 – 24 September 2020
Westin Hotel, Waltham, MA USA
The IEEE High-Performance Extreme Computing Conference (HPEC ‘20) will be held in the Greater Boston Area, Massachusets, the USA on 22 – 24 September 2020.
The HPEC charter is to be the premier conference in the world on the confluence of HPC and Embedded Computing.
HPEC is the largest computing conference in New England and is the premier conference in the world on the convergence of High Performance and Embedded Computing. We are passionate about performance. Our community is interested in computing hardware, software, systems and applications where performance matters. We welcome experts and people who are new to the field.
The technical committee seeks new presentations that clearly describe advances in high-performance extreme computing technologies, emphasizing one or more of the following topics:
•AI / Machine Learning
•Graph Analytics and Network Science
•Advanced Multicore Software Technologies
•Advanced Processor Architectures
•Automated Design Tools
•Big Data and Distributed Computing
•Big Data Meets Big Compute
•Case Studies and Benchmarking of Applications
•Computing Technologies for Challenging Form Factors
•ASIC and FPGA Advances
•Quantum and Non-Deterministic Computing
•Digital Front Ends
•Embedded Cloud Computing
•General Purpose GPU Computing
•High-Performance Data Analysis
•Interactive and Real-Time Supercomputing
•Mapping and Scheduling of Parallel and Real-Time Applications
•New Application Frontiers
•Open System Architectures
•Secure Computing and Anti-Tamper Technologies
Submission Deadline: May 22, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: July 1, 2020
Camera Ready Deadline: August 31, 2020
The HPEC submission site will be open in January 2020 and full instructions will be posted to the web site.
HPEC accepts two types of submissions:
1. Full papers (up to 6 pages, references not included; additional pages can be purchased for $200/page).
2. Extended abstracts (up to 2 pages, references included).Preference will be given to papers with strong, quantitative results, demonstrating novel approaches or describing high-quality prototypes. Authors of full papers can mark their preference for a poster display or an oral presentation. Presenters who wish to have hardware demonstrations are encouraged to mark their preference for a poster display. Accepted extended abstracts will be displayed as posters. All paper and extended abstract submissions need to use the approved IEEE templates.
Full paper submissions with the highest peer review ratings will be published by IEEE in the official HPEC proceedings available on IEEE eXplore. All other accepted submissions and extended abstracts are published on ieee-hpec.org. Vendors are encouraged to sign up for vendor booths. This will allow vendors to present their HPEC technologies in an interactive atmosphere suitable for product demonstration and promotion. Papers can be declared “student paper” if the first author was a student when doing the presented work, and will be eligible for the “IEEE HPEC Best Student Paper Award.” Papers should not be anonymous.
We welcome input (firstname.lastname@example.org) on tutorials, invited talks, special sessions, peer-reviewed presentations, and vendor demos.
