GENERAL INFORMATION

The 2016 Spring Simulation Multi-Conference will feature the 24th High Performance Computing Symposium (HPC 2016), devoted to the impact of high performance computing and communications on computer simulations.

Advances in multicore and many-core architectures, networking, high end computers, large data stores, and middleware capabilities are ushering in a new era of high performance parallel and distributed simulations. Along with these new capabilities come new challenges in computing and system modeling. The goal of HPC 2016 is to encourage innovation in high performance computing and communication technologies and to promote synergistic advances in modeling methodologies and simulation. It will promote the exchange of ideas and information between universities, industry, supercomputing centers, and national laboratories about new developments in system modeling, high performance computing and communication, scientific computing as well as simulation.

Topics of interest include:

  • High performance computing issues in Big Data analytics
  • High performance/large scale application case studies
  • GPU for general purpose computations (GPGPU)
  • Multicore and many-core computing
  • Power aware computing
  • Cloud, distributed, and grid computing
  • Asynchronous numerical methods and programming
  • Hybrid system modeling and simulation
  • Large scale visualization and data management
  • Tools and environments for coupling parallel codes
  • Parallel algorithms and architectures
  • High performance software tools
  • Resilience at the simulation level
  • Component technologies for high performance computing

PAPER SUBMISSIONS

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers (up to 8 pages, double column format) on topics related to the areas listed above. They will be peer reviewed and - if accepted and presented at the conference - submitted to the ACM Digital Library.

Submissions will be evaluated on relevance, technical quality, and exposition. Papers must not have appeared before (or be pending) in a journal or conference with published proceedings, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during the HPC 2016 review process. All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings as regular papers.

At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the symposium and must present the paper at the symposium.

Papers should be submitted electronically using the SpringSim paper submission system for HPC 2016.

TUTORIALS, PANELS, AND SPECIAL SESSIONS

Proposals for tutorials, panels, and special sessions are welcome; submit such proposals to the general or program chairs by October 31, 2015. Early submissions are appreciated.

PUBLICATION

The symposium proceedings will be published in hard copy, on USB flash drive through SCS and in the ACM Digital Library.

BEST PAPER AWARD

At least one paper from each symposium will be chosen for a Best Paper Award, which will be recognized in an awards ceremony before a plenary lecture.
