AIMS & SCOPE

The use and development of High Performance Computing in Latin America is steadily growing. New challenges come from the capabilities provided by clusters, grids, and distributed systems for HPC, promoting research and innovation in this area. Building on the great success of the previous nine editions, this year the Latin American Conference on High Performance Computing (CARLA 2017) will be held in Buenos Aires, from September 11 to September 14. The main goal of CARLA 2017 is to provide a regional forum fostering the growth of the HPC community in Latin America through the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in HPC. The conference will feature invited talks from academy and industry, short- and full-paper sessions presenting both mature work and new ideas in research and industrial applications.

Suggested topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

Parallel Algorithms

The development, evaluation and optimization of scalable, general-purpose, high-performance algorithms.

Multicore Architectures and Accelerators

All aspects of high-performance hardware including the optimization and evaluation of processors and networks.

Parallel Programming Techniques

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.

Grid and Cloud Computing, and Federations

All software aspects of clouds and distributed computing that are related to high-performance computing systems, including software architecture, configuration, optimization and evaluation.

HPC Computing Education and Outreach

All aspects in the HPC computing applying to enhance the learning and wisdom of the societies.

HPC Infrastructure and Datacenters

High-performance computing (HPC) is the use of parallel processing for running advanced application programs efficiently, reliably and quickly.

Large Scale Distributed Systems

All software aspects of clouds and distributed computing that are related to high-performance computing systems, including software architecture, configuration, optimization and evaluation.

Scientific and Industrial Computing

Is the study of the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers. It is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications.

High Performance Applications and Tools

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.

Big data, Data Management and Visualization

All aspects of data analytics, visualization and storage related to high-performance computing systems.

Call for Papers

INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

Authors are invited to submit full and short papers written in English, according to the Springer LNCS style. Papers must not have been previously published or submitted elsewhere. Submissions will be handled electronically using an online system. All paper submissions will be carefully reviewed by three experts and returned to the author(s). The authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.

Regular full-length papers
Full papers must not exceed 15 pages, including name, affiliation and address of the author(s), figures, tables, references, and an abstract of no more than 200 words. All full paper submissions will be carefully reviewed by at least two experts and returned to the author(s) with comments to ensure the high quality of accepted papers. Full papers accepted for the program will appear in the CARLA 2017 proceedings.

Short papers/Extended abstracts
Authors are invited to submit short papers (extended abstracts) for results that are too late to be submitted as regular full-length papers. Short papers must not exceed 4 pages. Short papers accepted for the program will appear in the proceedings (not expanded to full papers, and with Extended Abstract in the title) and be presented orally during the symposium (in suitably shorter speaking slots) as a regular part of the program.

Student papers (special Students Track)
Students assisting the High Performance Computing School (Escuela de Computación de Alto Rendimiento, ECAR) 2017 are invited to submit student papers to the special Students Track. Student papers can be either full-length or short, and they be presented orally during the symposium (in suitably student speaking slots) as a regular part of the program.

Proceedings
Following the previous editions, we plan to include all accepted full and short papers in the CARLA 2017 proceedings, to be published in the series CCIS of Springer: Communications in Computer and Information Science (pending to be approved).

Special Issues
Authors of the best papers submitted to the workshop will be invited to submit their extended versions to special issues of journals in the areas of supercomputing and high performance computing (details will be provided soon).
