Conference Location
Call For Papers
High Performance Computing and Big Data are two main areas where NPC 2017 will provide a dynamic forum to explore, discuss and debate state-of-the-art technology issues and challenges. High-performance computers and big-data systems are tied inextricably to the broader computing ecosystem and its designs and market adoption. They also highlight information security needs and economic competitiveness in ways that distinguish them from most other scientific instruments. We strongly believe that the stake is high, and it is far beyond the boundaries of nations and continents, and should strongly encourage a broad international participation.

We share the view that, during the past decade, the tools and cultures of high-performance computing and big data analytics are diverging to the detriment of both, and the international community should find a unified path that can best serve the need of a broad spectrum of major application areas. Unlike other tools, which are limited to particular scientific domains, computational modeling and data analytics are applicable to all areas of science and engineering, as they breathe life into the underlying mathematics of scientific models.

Parallel and distributed applications and algorithms

    Parallel and distributed issues and opportunities on artificial intelligence application.
    Parallel algorithms for computational and data-enabled scientific, engineering, biological and medical applications
    Parallel algorithms for accelerators, neuromorphic architectures, and other emerging architectures

Parallel and distributed architectures and systems

    Emerging architectures and systems at all scales, from embedded to cloud.
    Systems for enabling parallelism at an extreme scale
    Power-efficient and green computing systems
    Neuromorphic architectures and cognitive computing accelerators
    Heterogeneous multicore architectures and accelerators
    In-Memory and near-data computing
    Network and interconnect architectures
    Storage systems in novel big data architectures

Parallel and distributed software environments and tools

    Programming models and compilation for existing and emerging platforms
    Dataflow programming models, frameworks, languages and environments for data-enabled platforms
    Virtualization of machines, networks, and storage
    I/O, file systems, and data management
    Resource management, scheduling, and load balancing

NPC is in its 14th year and previous conferences have attracted high quality papers and wide international participation.

As in previous years, we will publish top papers from NPC 2017 in a special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP), and the proceedings will be published as part of Springer LNCS. Additional details can be found in NPC 2017 website.
