HiPC 2021 will be the 28th edition of the IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing, Data, Analytics, and Data Science. HiPC serves as a forum to present current work by researchers from around the world as well as highlight activities in Asia in the areas of high performance computing and data science. The meeting focuses on all aspects of high performance computing systems, and data science and analytics, and their scientific, engineering, and commercial applications.
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research manuscripts that demonstrate current research in all areas of high performance computing, and data science and analytics, covering all traditional areas and emerging topics including from machine learning, big data analytics and blockchain. Each submission should be submitted to one of the six tracks listed under the two broad themes of High Performance Computing and Data Science.
Up to two best paper awards will be given for outstanding contributed papers.
HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING
Algorithms. This track invites papers that describe original research on developing new parallel and distributed computing algorithms, and related advances. Examples of topics that are of interest include (but not limited to):
Architecture. This track invites papers that describe original research on the design and evaluation of high performance computing architectures, and related advances. Examples of topics of interest include (but not limited to):
Applications. This track invites papers that describe original research on the design and implementation of scalable and high performance applications for execution on parallel, distributed and accelerated platforms, and related advances. Examples of topics of interest include (but not limited to):
Systems Software. This track invites papers that describe original research on the design, implementation, and evaluation of systems software for high performance computing platforms, and related advances. Examples of topics of interest include (but not limited to):
SCALABLE DATA SCIENCE
Scalable Algorithms and Analytics. This track invites papers that describe original research on developing scalable algorithms for data analysis at scale, and related advances. Examples of topics of interest include (but not limited to):
Scalable Systems and Software. This track invites papers that describe original research on developing scalable systems and software for handling data at scale and related advances. Examples of topics of interest include (but not limited to):

MANUSCRIPT AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Abstracts of no more than 300 words must be submitted by the abstract submission deadline. The title and abstract submitted by this deadline should have sufficient detail and not just be a placeholder.
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. The submitted paper should list the authors and their affiliations.
The IEEE conference style templates for MS Word and LaTeX provided by IEEE eXpress Conference Publishing are available for download. See the latest versions here. Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file.
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. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered. Papers must be submitted under one of the 6 technical tracks listed above. The topics listed under each track are representative, but not exhaustive. A published proceeding will be available at the conference. Authors may contact the Program Chair at the email address above for further information or clarification.
At least one author of each paper must be registered for the conference in order for the paper to be published in the proceedings. Presentation of an accepted paper in person is a requirement of publication for a physical conference. Depending on how the COVID-19 pandemic situation evolves, the presentation may be in person or in a virtual format. Details of these will be specified at the time of paper acceptance. Any paper not meeting requirements will not be included in the conference proceedings under IEEE Xplore.
Authors of selected high-quality papers in HiPC 2021 will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for possible publication in a special issue of the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing.

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. Authors are highly encouraged to list the key contributions of their paper, for example in a separate paragraph in the introduction of the paper. The review process is “single-blind” (i.e., authors can list their names on the paper), and that there will be a rebuttal period.
The initial decision for the submission may be Accept, Reject or Revise. Papers that are recommended for revision will have to address the comments from the reviewers, and submit a revised article along with a summary of changes. This will go through a light review and the final decision will be communicated.
