Call Now Open for ISC 2018 Research Papers 

FRANKFURT, Oct. 5, 2017 -- Submissions are now open for the ISC 2018 conference research paper sessions, which aim to provide first-class opportunities for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to present and discuss issues, trends, and results that will shape the future of high performance computing (HPC). Submissions will be accepted through December 22, 2017.

The research paper sessions will be held from Monday, June 25, through Wednesday, June 27, 2018. ISC High Performance (ISC 2018) will be hosted in Frankfurt, Germany.

Submitted research papers will be peer-reviewed double-blind by at least four reviewers. This year’s Research Papers Committee is headed by Prof. David Keyes, KAUST, as Chair and Dr.-Ing. Carsten Trinitis, TU Munich, as Deputy Chair and Prof. Rio Yokota, Tokyo Institute of Technology, as Proceedings Chair and Dr. Michèle Weiland, EPCC, as Proceedings Deputy Chair.


All accepted research papers will be published in the Springer‘s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. For the camera-ready version, authors are automatically granted one extra page to incorporate reviewer comments. The publication is free of charge and the published papers can be downloaded from Springer‘s website for a limited time after the conference. The proceedings are indexed in the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S), included in ISI Web of Science, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus and Zentralblatt MATH.
