ISC'13 - call for submissions

The 2013 International Supercomputing Conference Research Paper and Tutorials Committees are now accepting abstracts and tutorial proposals for ISC’13 in Europe. The ISC’13 Call for Papers is supported by the IEEE Germany Section.

The deadline for the research paper abstract submission is 27 January 2013 and the tutorial proposals are to be submitted by 10 February 2013. All abstracts and proposals need to be submitted via the EasyChair conference system.

An early submission of abstracts is required so that papers can be distributed according to the expertise of individual committee member. Anyone interested should refer to the ISC’13 website for full submission guidelines or contact the programme coordinator, Heike Walther, at

The ISC’13 conference and exhibition, the 28th in the ISC series, will take place in Leipzig, Germany, from 16 to 20 June and is expected to draw more than 2,500 academic and industry attendees and 170 exhibitors representing high-performance computing, networking and storage.

High-quality papers reporting original work in theoretical, experimental and industry research and development are sought in the following areas:

  • Architectures (multicore/manycore systems, heterogeneous systems, network technology and programming models);
  • Algorithms and analysis (scalability on future architectures, performance evaluation and tuning);
  • Large-scale simulations (workflow management, data analysis and visualisation, coupled simulations and industrial simulations);
  • Future trends (exascale HPC, HPC in the cloud);
  • Storage and data (file systems and tape libraries, data intensive applications and databases);
  • Software engineering in HPC (application of methods, surveys);
  • Supercomputing facility (batch job management, job mix and system utilisation and monitoring and administration tools); and
  • Scalable applications: 50k+ (ISC research thrust). The research paper committee encourages scientists to submit parallelisation approaches that lead to scalable applications on more than 50,000 (CPU or GPU) cores.

Submissions on other innovative aspects of high-performance computing are also welcome.
