Conference Location
Call For Papers
You are cordially invited to participate in and attend the 2016 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2016) to be held in Innsbruck, Austria, July 18 – 22, 2016).  The conference is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in high performance and large scale computing systems, their use in modeling and simulation, their design, performance and use, and their impact.  Participation is extended to researchers, designers, educators and interested parties in all related disciplines and specialties. 


The conference will include invited presentations by experts from academia, industry, and government as well as contributed paper presentations describing original work on the current state of research in HPC & simulation technologies and systems and related issues.

Submission of Papers:

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and any other related HPCS topics are solicited.  Manuscripts submitted should not be under simultaneous consideration by any other conference or venues.  Submission should include a completed online web based form (or a cover page) with authors' names, affiliations, addresses, fax and phone numbers, and email addresses of all authors.  Please indicate clearly the corresponding author(s), although all authors are equally responsible for the paper and its content.  Include up to 6 keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 400 words.  Electronic submissions to main conference track will be accepted only in PDF format, uploaded to the web site above.  Please submit an electronic copy of your full draft manuscript, not to exceed 8 pages in the single-spaced, double-column format, including figures, tables, and references, according to the template posted on the HPCS 2016 web site using the conference web site submission link (Upload) at  Additional pages will be charged an additional fee.  If accepted, the final camera-ready manuscript will follow the conference format template posted, which will be made available to all authors. 

Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, contributions and significance, timeliness, relevance, flow and clarity of presentation, and language. Initial selection will be based on full papers. Papers are accepted based on these criteria and not those of the authors or their institutions. Submission implies the firm intent and willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. No withdrawal after the acceptance decision is permitted unless there is reasonable cause as determined by the conference organizers. All accepted papers in the conference are required to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings. People with a submission for the purpose of obtaining reviews only will be flagged and reported. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings papers are usually indexed in all major indexing services. 

The Conference policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge which that access provides. Contents of abstracts submitted to the conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications and Program Chairs shall require that referees adhere to this practice. 

For information about the HPCS 2016 conference in general, please contact the conference organizers or consult the conference web site.
