The 25th annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing, Data, and Analytics (HiPC 2018) will be held in Bengaluru, India, December 17-20, 2018. Complementing the main technical program, HiPC workshops serve to broaden the technical scope of the conference in emerging areas of high performance computing, communication, data and analytics and their applications.
Held on the first day of the conference, HiPC workshops will typically be half-day events although proposals for full-data workshops will be considered. The papers accepted for presentation at the HiPC 2018 workshops will be included in the workshops volume of the conference proceedings with a separate ISBN (HiPCW 2018), and will be distributed online. Post conference, papers presented at the conference and eligible for inclusion will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
