HiPC '96

3rd International Conference on High Performance Computing (HiPC)
December 19-22, 1996
Trivandrum, India

Held in cooperation with:

IEEE Computer Society
Centre for Development of Advanced Computing(C-DAC), India
CSIR Centre for Mathematical Modelling and Computer Simulation, India
Supercomputer Education and Research Centre, India
Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, India
Indian Institutes of Technology.

This is the third international meeting on high performance computing to be organized in India. It will serve as a forum to present current work by researchers from around the world as well as highlight activities in India in the high performance computing area. The meeting will emphasize both design and analysis of high performance computing systems and their scientific, engineering, and commercial applications. In addition to technical sessions of contributed paper presentations, the conference will offer invited presentations, tutorials, vendor presentations, and exhibits.

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate current research in all areas of high performance computing including design and analysis of parallel and distributed systems and their applications in scientific, engineering, and commercial areas. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Parallel Algorithms              * Scientific Computation
* Parallel Architectures           * Visualization
* Parallel Languages & Compilers   * Network Based Computing
* Distributed Systems              * Signal & Image Processing Systems
* Programming Environments         * Supercomputing Applications

To submit a paper, send a summary of your work (not to exceed ten double spaced pages including figures, tables, and references) to the Program Chair. Mail/Fax submissions will be considered; however, electronic form of submission (postscript format, 300dpi) is preferred. Electronic submissions should be sent to Hard copy (five copies) and fax (one copy) submissions should be sent to the program committee chair at the address/fax number given below. In addition to the summary, please include a cover page listing your postal address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers, and the name and address of the person who will present the work, if accepted. All manuscripts will be reviewed. To be considered, the summary and the cover page must be received by April 10, 1996. Notification of accept/reject decisions will be mailed by June 30, 1996. Camera-ready papers are due August 1, 1996. Proceedings will be available at the meeting. Submissions to the meeting should be made with the implicit understanding that if the manuscript is accepted, the author(s) will participate in the meeting or make arrangements to present their work at the meeting.

The conference will be held at the Technopark campus which houses state-of-the-art meeting facilities. Technopark is an electronic technology park located in Trivandrum. Accommodation for participants will be available in the hotels at the nearby Kovalam beach resort. Trivandrum(Thiruvananthapuram, the City of the Endless Serpent) is located near the southern-most tip of India. It is the capital of the state of Kerala. With its golden beaches and emerald green palm trees, it is a popular tourist destination. Trivandrum is home to some leading scientific and technological institutions in India including the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, and the Centre for Earth Science Studies. The city has a number of tourist attractions. Places of tourist attraction include Raja Ravi Varma's dramatic paintings at the Chitra Art Gallery, buildings from colonial times which combine indigenous architectural styles with European ones, the Napier museum with a fine collection of bronzes, and the Oriental manuscript library which preserves ancient palm leaf manuscripts.
