Call for Panels

The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation 
(HPCS 2017)

July 17 – 21, 2017
Genoa, Italy

Proposal Submission Deadline: 10 March, 2017


The 2017 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2017) is an exciting forum that brings together scientists and researchers from academia as well as managers and engineers from industry and government organizations to meet and exchange ideas and recent works on all aspects of high performance computing systems, their design and use, their roles and impact, and their applications, especially in computational sciences and in modeling and simulation of complex systems. The conference will consist of technical sessions: symposia, workshops and special sessions, tutorials, demos, exhibits, doctoral dissertation colloquium, and panels. These will present original and fundamental research advances in the subject areas. 
Panel proposals may address a broad range of topics. Topics of interest include all aspects of high performance computing and simulation. 

Panels are a great way to generate debate and raise provocative and new issues. We solicit panel proposals on hot and controversial topics by leading experts on the subject of high performance computing systems and simulation. A proposal should focus on a specific topic of current or emerging interest. They should be provocative, informative, and exciting. A proposal should include the following information: 
  • Panel's topic and title
  • Panel organizer's name, affiliation, and contact information
  • Panelists' names, affiliation, contact information, and biographies
  • A one-page abstract that clearly describes the panel purpose and scope as well as main ideas and format. 
  • Position Statements from the panelists are also welcomed but not required at the proposal time.  

Proposal Submission
Please send the panel proposal via emails to the Panels Co-Chairs.
