    • Real-time Computing for Business and Finance

    • Stream-processing for Trading Systems

    • Market Microstructure

    • Data Analytics for Financial Applications

    • Business Intelligence Analytics

    • Stochastic Control

    • Parallel Computing for Financial Models

    • Financial Libraries

    • Genetic and Computational Algorithms for Finance

    • Efficient Mapping of Business and Financial Applications to Parallel Systems

    • Very-large Datasets, Data-mining

    • High-frequency Trading

    • Financial Econometrics

    • Financial Forecasting

    • Risk Management Systems

    • Fast Algorithms for Trading and High Frequency Risk Management

    • Economic and Financial Networks

    • Firm Operations and Management

    • High-bandwidth/Low-latency Streaming of Market Data

    • Large Production Systems, Supply Chains

    • Crowdsourcing, Crowdfunding

    • Government and the Public Sector

    • Computational Methods for Insurance and Actuarial Valuation

    • Stock Market Applications and Tools


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to High-Performance and Distributed Computing for Business Analytics and Financial Applications (with applications in economics, finance and management). 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 workshop paper submission site at xxx. 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 workshop.


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.


Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for possible publication in a journal as special issue. Detailed information will soon be announced and will be made available on the conference website.

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