Call for Papers
ICS is the premier international forum for the presentation of research results in high-performance computing systems. In 2015, the conference will be held in Newport Beach, California.
Papers are solicited on all aspects of the research, development, and application of large-scale, high-performance experimental and commercial systems, including:
- Computer architecture and hardware, including multicore and multiprocessor systems, accelerators, memory, interconnection network and storage and file systems;
- High-performance computational and programming models, including new languages and middleware for high performance computing, auto-tuning and function-specific code generators;
- High performance system software, including compilers, runtime systems, programming and development tools, performance tools, and operating systems;
- Hardware and software solutions for heterogeneity, reliability, and power efficiency;
- Languages, runtimes, and hardware for “big data” scenarios with a focus on high-performance data analytics, including scalable data structures, dealing with large quantities of unstructured data, online monitoring and I/O, and parallel visualization;
- Computationally challenging scientific and commercial applications, particularly studies and experiences on large-scale systems, and supercomputing on big data problems;
- Large scale installations, including case studies to guide the design of future systems and solutions for efficiently scaling power, performance, reliability and sustainability;
- Novel infrastructures for internet, grid and cloud computing;
- Performance evaluation studies and theoretical underpinnings of any of the above topics.
Of particular interest are papers on any aspects of extreme-scale and heterogeneous supercomputing systems, integrated HPC software stacks, and supercomputing applications in science and engineering. Papers should not exceed 10 pages in the ACM format.

The submission site at easychair: link.
Use the ACM SIG Proceedings "Alternate" style. Extensive
documentation can be found at the ACM
site. Submissions should be a maximum of ten (10) pages, including
Submissions (both abstract and paper) should be prepared for double blind review, i.e., without author names, or other identifying material in the submission. Authors should refer to themselves in the 3rd person when citing their own work.
The submission system requests information about the authors. This information will not be given to the reviewers.
