International Program Committee*:

All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by the symposium technical program committee members following similar criteria used in HPCS 2017 and will be published as part of the HPCS 2017 Proceedings.

  • Fan Jiang, University of Manitoba, Canada

  • Wookey Lee, Inha University, South Korea

  • Adam Pazdor, University of Manitoba, Canada

  • Oluwafemi Sarumi, The Federal University of Technology - Akure, Nigeria

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Information Systems and Engineering for and in High Performance Computing Systems. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the symposium paper submission site at Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.

Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, language, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2017 conference to present the paper at the symposium.


Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2017 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the symposium, please contact the symposium organizers.
