TopHPC delivers the top technical program in the High Performance Computing and Big Data community which meets the uppermost academic and industrial standards. The technical program is included interesting talks with famous keynote speakers, research papers, tutorials, discussion panels, industrial sessions and exhibition.
The development, evaluation and optimization of scalable, general-purpose, high performance algorithms.
The development and enhancement of algorithms, models, software and problem solving environments for domain-specific applications that require high performance resources.
All aspects of high performance hardware including the optimization and evaluation of processors and networks.
All software aspects of clouds and distributed computing that are related to high performance computing systems, including software architecture, configuration, optimization and evaluation.
All aspects of data analytics, visualization and storage related to high performance computing systems.
Novel methods and tools for measuring, evaluating, and/or analyzing performance. “Performance” may be broadly construed to include any number of metrics, such as execution time, energy, power, or potential measures of resilience. Submissions in this area are encouraged to show the applicability and reproducibility of their results by means such as sensitivity analysis, performance modeling, or code snippets.
Technologies that support parallel programming for large-scale systems as well as smaller-scale components that will plausibly serve as building blocks for next-generation high performance computing architectures.
All aspects related to novel but at the same time pragmatic practices of HPC that allow for results that are far superior with respect to time-, energy-, or cost-to-solution. These include infrastructure, services, facilities and large-scale application executions. Submissions that develop best end-to-end practices, optimized designs or benchmarks are of particular interest. Although concrete case studies within a conceptual framework often serve as the basis for accepted papers, how the experience generalizes is particularly encouraged.
Operating system (OS), runtime system and other low-level software research and development that enables allocation and management of hardware resources for high performance computing applications and services.
The Technical Papers Program at TopHPC is the leading venue in Iran for presenting the highest-quality original research. TopHPC welcomes submissions that make significant contributions to the “state-of-the-practice” by providing compelling insights on best practices for provisioning, using and enhancing high-performance computing systems, services, and facilities and BigData Analytics. ToPHPC 2019 will use a double-blind review process.
All accepted TopHPC2019 research papers will be published in the Springer’s CCIS: Communications in Computer and Information Science. The CCIS series has ISSN Number - 1865-0929. The books of this series are submitted to ISI Proceedings, EI-Compendex, DBLP, SCOPUS, Google Scholar and Springerlink. CCIS page is available at: HTTPS://WWW.SPRINGER.COM/SERIES/7899 , TopHPC in Springer Proceeding Announcement: Springer Proceeding Announcement
You can submit a paper using the EasyChair system. Direct link to submission page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tophpc2019 You need to sign up before using the EasyChair system. If you have already registered, you may need to choose the "TopHPC2019" conference and "Author" role. After logging into the system, select “New Submission” from the menu in the top left corner. Then select whether you are submitting a paper/poster for the main conference.
Two types of researches will be accepted for the conference: the full paper and the short paper.
A full paper is 10-12 pages long and presents the results of a completed scientific study. Full papers are accepted in English.
A short paper is 6-9 pages long and presents tentative results obtained during the course of a scientific study in progress. Short papers are accepted in English.
Full and short papers in English must meet Communications in Computer and Information Science by Springer standards. Please refer to Springer author guidelines (MS Word templates can be found here). Authors will be requested to sign Springer's Consent to Publish.
As part of its Technical Program, TopHPC will host a collection of tutorials that offer attendees the opportunity to learn from, and interact with, knowledgeable and frequent users of high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage, and Big Data analysis. The TopHPC tutorials committee is soliciting proposals for tutorials to be offered at the congress. Please read the following carefully for details about desired tutorial topics, format and organization, available support for tutorial presenters, the required and suggested contents of a proposal, and how to submit a proposal.
We encourage organizers of accepted tutorials to submit a short promotional video, and ToPHPC will make available to its attendees a web site aggregating links to these videos.
Submission of samples of visual aids is strongly recommended, either as an appendix uploaded with the tutorial proposal file, or as in the form of URLs in the main proposal file that point to materials hosted elsewhere.
If the proposed tutorial includes hands-on demos and/or exercises, the proposal should include detailed evidence that the computing and networking resources needed for the demos/exercises will be available during the tutorial, and that the demos/exercises will work for attendees on those resources (i.e., they have been fully tested and debugged). TopHPC will provide clients wireless network access to all tutorial sessions. Demos and exercises may target common attendee laptop configurations (e.g., using a bootable “live cd”), but should provide a fallback configuration for attendees without access to such a laptop during the tutorial.
Selection:Members of the TopHPC tutorials committee will review the submitted tutorial proposals, grading them on factors such as:
To submit the tutorial proposal, please follow these instructions:Tutorial Proposal Format for TopHPC2019
Organizers of accepted tutorials will be required to submit their presentation materials to the congress approximately two and a half months before the congress for the USB stick, and optional promotional videos at least one month before the congress so that they have the potential to attract attendees. Tutorial organizers will have opportunity to update their materials after the initial submission for the download site.
