Call for Symposia, Workshops and Special Sessions

The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation

(HPCS 2011)


July 4 – 8, 2011
Bahcesehir University
Istanbul, Turkey


(Proposal Submission Deadline: November 23, 2010)


PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2011) Organizing Committee invites proposals for symposia, workshops and special sessions to be held in conjunction with the HPCS 2011 Conference.

Symposia, workshops and special sessions provide an opportunity for researchers to present results and participate in focused discussions of timely topics on various areas of high performance computing systems and technologies as well as their applications and use in Modeling and Simulation domains.  The symposia, workshops and special sessions are to establish a common understanding of a certain aspect, to share experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other, to identify open problems and/or to explore future directions of research. 

A symposium will usually run for at least one full day or more.  A workshop will typically be a full day (10-16 papers).  A special session will typically have 4-6 papers.   Symposia, workshops and special sessions will be fully refereed and their accepted papers will be published as part of the HPCS 2011 proceedings. 

The symposia, workshops and special sessions are considered part of the overall HPCS Conference and hence included in the conference registration.  For each symposium, workshop or special session, at least one organizer must commit to attending and running the symposium, workshop or special session.

Requirements for submission of a workshop or special session proposal:
  1. Title of the symposium, workshop or special session.
  2. A brief technical description of the symposium, workshop or special session, identification of specific technical issues/topics, focus, and motivations / justification of its timeliness. 
  3. Instructions for paper submission and a description of the review process. 
  4. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses of the proposed symposium/workshop/session organizing committee.  This committee should consist of members knowledgeable in the technical issues to be addressed by the symposium, workshop or special session. 
  5. Primary contact(s) of the organizing committee.
  6. Estimated number of participants, length, and important dates of the symposium/workshop/special session. 
  7. The means of publicity and soliciting participation
  8. Any resources that may be required, such as one day or half day workshop/special session, expected room size, whether a panel setup is needed, etc. 
  9. Information about the previous edition of the symposium/workshop/special session (if any): attendance, number of papers submitted, number of papers accepted. 
All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail as a .doc attachment.  Samples of previous proposals can be found on the HPCS 2010 web site at  http://cisedu.us/cis/hpcs/10/main/callForPapers.jsp under Symposia, Workshops and Special Sessions menus.
