Call for Workshop Proposals for HiPC 2019
The 26th annual IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing, Data, and Analytics (HiPC 2019) will be held in Hyderabad, India, December 17-20, 2019. Complementing the main technical program, HiPC workshops serve to broaden the technical scope of the conference in emerging areas of high performance computing, networking, data analytics, and their applications.
Held on the first day of the conference, HiPC workshops will typically be half-day events although proposals for full-day workshops will also be considered. The papers accepted for presentation at the HiPC 2019 workshops will be included in the workshops volume of the conference proceedings with a separate ISBN (HiPCW 2019) and will be distributed online. Post-conference, papers presented at the conference and eligible for inclusion will be made available to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

What/Where to Submit
Potential HiPC workshop organizers should submit a workshop proposal that contains the items listed below. The proposal should also specify steps to be taken to develop a high-quality program committee and attract high-quality submissions to place the workshop(s) in a competitive international landscape.
Workshops will be held on the first day of the conference, i.e., December 17th. Workshops may be proposed as a half-day program, running for 3 hours in the morning or afternoon, or as a full day program. In the case of the latter, organizers should explain how they will attract sufficient participation to develop a full day program of peer-reviewed papers.
Proposals to organize a workshop at HiPC 2019 should include:
- Description: title; topics to be addressed; goals; relevance and significance to the main conference.
- Names, affiliations and contact information for organizers.
- Plans for soliciting submissions, and the process for selecting papers to be presented at the workshop and included in the workshop proceedings.
- Tentative names of Keynote/ invited speakers
- Tentative PROGRAM outline identifying key elements such as panels, discussion sessions, poster sessions, invited talks, etc.
- Tentative list of PC members to be recruited
- A detailed timeline of the peer-review process
The topics of the proposed workshop should complement those listed in the main conference call for papers. Each workshop should be centered around a coherent theme or topic related to HPC and/or scalable data science; We particularly encourage workshop themes that relate to emerging areas and/or emerging application contexts of societal value (e.g., agriculture, energy, sustainability, workforce development).
Workshop proposals will need to clearly state the purpose and the applications of the techniques in the abstract. Workshop proposers will also need to clearly identify how they are going to attract papers and speakers. The proposal should not exceed three pages and should be submitted as a pdf file to the HiPC Workshops Chairs at [email protected].
