Convergence of HPC and AI workshop (HPC&AI18)

December 17, 2018




HPC is a fundamental pillar of modern science. From predicting weather to discovering drugs to finding new energy sources, researchers use large computing systems to simulate and predict our world. AI extends traditional HPC by letting researchers analyze massive amounts of data faster and more effectively. It’s a transformational new tool for gaining insights where simulation alone cannot fully predict the real world. The recent stream of publications suggests it may, but there is still much work to be done before AI can enter the day-to-day toolbox of scientists.

This workshop will discuss the challenges in the convergence of HPC and AI. It will address the challenge of delivering scalable, HPC-like performance for AI. This workshop will discuss ways that Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence can be combined with traditional large scale simulations to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery from High Energy Physics to Life Sciences and Healthcare.


We invite submissions of high-quality, novel, and original research results on applying artificial intelligence technologies to HPC applications, especially large scale simulations, and the following related topical areas:


·  Intelligent HPC

·  Usage of ML/AI for Simulation in domains like CFD, MD, Analytics, Signal Processing, Healthcare, Particle Physics, Smart Cities, Industries, Weather and Chemistry.

·  Scaling AI for HPC simulations (training and inference)

·  AI and HPC frameworks and libraries

·  Tools and methodologies for integrating AI into HPC applications

·  Use cases and success stories for converged applications



Manuscript Guidelines

Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5×11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references. See style templates for details:


LaTex Package (ZIP)

Word Package (ZIP)


Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file. All manuscripts will be reviewed by the Program Committee and evaluated on originality, relevance of the problem to the conference theme, technical strength, rigor in analysis, quality of results, and organization and clarity of presentation of the paper.

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference.


Presentation of an accepted paper at the workshop is a requirement of publication. Any paper that is not presented at the conference will not be included in  proceedings.
