(HPC-Ed 2020)


CALL FOR PAPERS & PARTICIPATION

As part of 
The 18th International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2020)
10 - 14 December 2020
Barcelona, Spain (Virtual/Online event)


 Paper Submission Deadline: 28 September 2020 - Extended

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters



SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
The fields of High Performance Computing, Cloud Computing, Distributed Systems, Big Data and Analytics, Computational Sciences, IoT, Artificial Intelligence, and several other related subjects are essential for newly developed technologies and discoveries. They are increasingly needed in many domains and daily life applications. Consequently, these systems and their applications will require a well trained workforce which can exploit the newly available capabilities and push forward to more innovations and breakthroughs. 

Preparing and training the new workforce for these technologies will require the development of well-thought out curriculum, pedagogical tools and platforms, programming languages and models, as well as laboratories and project oriented expertise. 

This track on High Performance Computing and Modeling & Simulation Education is meant to provide a forum and an opportunity for our communities in the subject matters to present, exchange and collaborate on the educational aspects and pedagogical developments of HPC related topics and their applications. 

The HPC-Ed topics include (but are not limited to) the following: 
  • Undergraduate and graduate Curriculum development for HPC, Parallel processing, Cloud Computing, sustainable and energy-aware HPC systems, and Distributed Computing systems
  • Undergraduate and graduate Curriculum development for modeling and simulation using HPC and Distributed computing systems
  • Experiences and lessons learned from existing programs and courseware
  • Novel practices for course work development and delivery
  • Assisting Tools and platforms for learning and education
  • Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary curricula and programs
  • Languages, programming environments and Operating Systems education
  • Project based Learning
  • Design of laboratories and learning experiments
  •  Program Assessment and Evaluation
  • Application domains Curricula  and Education (Big data, IoT, AI, Computational Sciences, Fog & Edge Computing, Mobile Computing, etc.)
  • Non-traditional learning and education
  • Computing Curricula 2020, Cybersecurity Curricula 2017, Etc.

Conference Policies
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and soundness, presentation, language, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend (virtually) the HPCS 2020 conference to present the paper at the special session as scheduled. By submitting the paper to the HPCS conference, all authors agree to abide by all HPCS conference paper submission, publication and presentation policies as well as following ethical and professional codes of conduct, including those of the professional co-sponsoring organizations. For more information, please refer to the Authors Info and Registration Info pages

Proceedings
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2020 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly. 

SPECIAL ISSUE
Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for possible publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed information will soon be announced and will be made available on the conference website. 

If you have any questions about paper submission or the special session, please contact the special session organizers.
