HiPC 2018 will be the 25th edition of the IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing, Data, and Analytics. HiPC serves as a forum to present current work by researchers from around the world as well as highlight activities in Asia in the area high performance computing. The meeting focuses on all aspects of high performance computing systems and their scientific, engineering, and commercial applications. In 2016, to keep pace with new computing trends, the conference added two new areas of interest to its name: Data and Analytics.


To observe this Silver Jubilee, HiPC has broadened the technical program to specifically include topics related to data science, and paper submissions were invited to either the HPC tracks of Algorithms, Applications, Architecture and Software or Data Science tracks of Big Data Algorithms and Analytics and Big Data Systems and Software. Papers and speakers presented in the conference reflect this updated mission for the conference, and we will have a special session to focus on the role of HiPC in India and also presentations to highlight the international role of the conference in HPC and Data Science as well as its contributions to research in India.


Wednesday Dec 19, Day 3

25th Year Celebration (3:15-5:15)

This session will help us to observe the silver jubilee of HiPC. We plan to include presentations and talks that summarize the start, the growth, and the future vision of HiPC. This will be followed by a special panel on the theme of “HiPC and Indian Academia.” The panel will focus on topics such as how HiPC has helped Indian academia, what can be done going forward for mutual benefit, what is important to improve systems research in India, and other related topics. We have invited leading researchers with recognized standing who are also “friends” of the HiPC community who have helped us build this conference and attract leading international researchers. We will structure the panel to let the panelists make their short opening remarks and then open the session for the audience to ask specific questions of the panelists. The outcome of this panel will help the organizing team of future HiPC editions to focus the event appropriately and serve the broader community in India.


Impactful Papers Published at HiPC

As part of the 25th year of HiPC, a committee has been constituted to select papers that are thought to be most impactful of the papers that have been published at HiPC over the past years. The committee looked at a large pool of papers, their citations across the years, and arrived at a shortlist of 25 papers. These 25 papers were put to vote to the PC Chairs of the past 25 years and a final list of the following seven papers are selected. Further follow-up steps will be posted soon.
