Overview

The ACM International Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing (HPDC) is the premier annual conference for presenting the latest research on the design, implementation, evaluation, and the use of parallel and distributed systems for high-end computing. The 27th HPDC will take place in Tempe, AZ, United States on June 11-15, 2018.

Scope and Topics

Submissions are welcomed on high-performance parallel and distributed computing (HPDC) topics including but not limited to: clouds, clusters, grids, big data, massively multicore, and extreme-scale computing systems. Submissions that focus on the operating systems, runtime environments, architectures, and networks of high end computing systems are particularly encouraged. Experience reports of operational deployments that provide significantly novel insights for future research on HPDC applications and systems will also receive special consideration. 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:

  • Operating systems, networks, and architectures
  • High performance runtime environments
  • Massively multicore systems, including heterogeneous systems
  • Datacenter technology, resource virtualization
  • Programming languages, APIs, and system interoperation approaches
  • File and storage systems, I/O, and data management
  • Big data stacks and big data ecosystems
  • Resource management and scheduling, including energy-aware techniques
  • Performance modeling, analysis, and engineering
  • Fault tolerance, reliability, and availability
  • Operational guarantees, and risk assessment and management
  • Traditional and emerging applications and services that depend upon high- end computing

Paper Submission Guidelines

Note: The review process is not double-blinded; the authors can reveal their identities in the paper (It's also OK to conceal them if they so wish).

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. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, and will be incorporated into the ACM Digital Library. Submitted papers must be original work that has not appeared in and is not under consideration for another conference or a journal.
