HiPC 2021 will feature the 13th 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 feature 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 IEEE Computer Society – Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP) – 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 2021 conference.
Papers are solicited in all areas of high-performance computing, data, and analytics, including but not limited to topics mentioned below.
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):
Architectures: 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 applications for execution on parallel and distributed 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 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):
Submission Opens: August 19, 2021
September 17, 2021 October 01, 2021
Accept/Reject Decision Notification: November 01, 2021
Symposium: December 17-18, 2021
Submissions should have at least one author who is a student during any part of the calendar year 2021. Submissions may have multiple student or non-student co-authors. Submissions must mark student authors with an asterisk (*).
In order to be considered for a poster at the Student Research Symposium, authors must submit papers/extended abstracts, not exceeding five (5) letter size (8.5in x 11in) pages, in 11 or 12 point font, single-spaced, with 1” margins on all sides. Papers are to be submitted online in PDF format through Easychair at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hipc2021
The papers will be used to select posters, but will NOT be published in the conference proceedings. This will provide students the 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, in any form, especially verbatim reproduction from other published works, 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.
