Student Research Symposium (SRS)


HiPC 2017 will feature the 10th Student Research Symposium on High Performance Computing, Data, and Analytics (HPC) aimed at stimulating and fostering student research, and providing an international forum to highlight student research accomplishments. The symposium will also provide exposure to students in the best practices in HPC in academia and industry.

The symposium will showcase student posters and provide students with other enriching experiences, such as workshops, industry exhibits, and demos. The Conference Reception and multiple Student Symposium Poster Exhibit sessions will provide an opportunity for students to interact with HPC researchers and practitioners (and recruiters) from academia and industry.

Awards for Best Poster, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Parallel Processing, will be presented at the symposium. An online book containing the resumes of the students participating in the symposium will be compiled and made available to the sponsors of the HiPC 2017 conference.


Like the main conference call for papers, the Student Research Symposium solicits papers in all areas of high-performance computing, data, and analytics, including but not limited to topics listed on the About HiPC page.

Submission Instructions

In order to be considered for a poster at the student Research Symposium, authors must submit papers, not exceeding five (5) letter size (8.5in x 11in) pages, in 11 or 12 point font, single spaced, with 1 inch margins on all sides. Papers are to be submitted online in PDF format through Easychair at:

The papers will be used to select posters, but will NOT be published in the conference proceedings. This will provide students flexibility to publish an extended version of their paper at other venues, after benefiting from reviewer feedback from the symposium.

Papers submitted to the symposium are expected to be reviewed by at least three independent reviewers. Papers will be judged on technical merit, quality, relevance to the symposium, and related parameters. Plagiarism is prohibited. Papers that are plagiarized will be rejected and the corresponding department and institution will be notified.

Facilities for displaying posters will be made available and the exact specifications of the poster size will be provided later. At least one student author of each paper that is accepted must register and attend the conference to present their work. Papers with no-shows will be retroactively rejected.

Travel Support

We expect to provide a travel scholarship to at least one student author of each accepted submission from an Indian university, subject to availability of funding. This scholarship will cover partial expenses for attending the conference. Further details on this scholarship and the application process will be provided later.
