Preliminary Call for DEMOS & EXHIBITS

The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation

(HPCS 2011)

July 4 – 8, 2011

Bahcesehir University

Istanbul, Turkey or

(Proposal Submission Deadline: February 25, 2011)


The HPCS 2011 Conference, held in conjunction with the International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2011) in Istanbul, Turkey, July 4 - 8, 2011, is an important opportunity for both business and academic sectors to network with the HPC and Simulation communities and collaborating projects investigators and developers, to exchange information, ideas, techniques, hardware and software platforms and tools on how to advance the state of the art in this rapidly evolving field, in order to support the scientific research and education as well as industrial applications and implementations.

Demos and experiential showcases of HPC environments and tools and simulation are highly encouraged to be part of this meeting. We welcome proposals on all subjects and exhibits related to HPCS. Topics include the themes outlined in the HPCS 2011 conference topics such as HPC applications, data-intensive and data-oriented distributed applications, knowledge mining systems, grid computing infrastructures, large scale testbed, cloud computing systems, scientific gateways for eScience, national and international activities and collaborations in the HPC and grid fields, modeling and simulation techniques and solutions using HPC systems, etc.

Demos and exhibits will be on display throughout the Conference, with dedicated sessions and times as will be indicated in the Program. For demos, this will give authors the opportunity to present their work to a wide audience. For exhibits, this will provide an excellent opportunity to market products and services as well as present announcements.

Real experimentation has proven to be a fundamental methodology to evaluate HPC technologies and systems as well as modeling and simulation. Early prototyping is an outstanding way to understand real user requirements and help adoption of technologies by the mass market. In addition, the demo sessions showing real-systems prototypes at work will naturally complement the technical sessions, thus stimulating discussions among attendees.

As in every year, the Conference will feature state-of-the-art set of demo presentations. The HPCS 2011 Organizing Committee invites proposals and ideas for demos to be held in conjunction with the Conference. Topics may cover different levels, ranging from introductory to highly advanced. Demos will address relevant subject areas within HPC and simulation. Typically, 30-minute demos are planned but others will be considered. Proposals will be evaluated by members of the Organizing Committee.

If you are interested in presenting a demo at this conference or you have an idea for a demo you would like to see offered, please contact the Demos & Exhibits Co-Chairs.

TOPICS INCLUDE (but are not limited to):

All HPCS related topics.


We invite you to prepare an abstract following the proposed templates below. Please specify clearly whether your proposal is for a demo or an exhibit. Please submit your abstract by email to the Co-Chairs (make sure that the subject of the e-mail says "HPCS 2011 Demos Submission" & " HPCS 2011 Exhibits Submission" respectively.)

The abstracts of accepted demo proposals will be disseminated to the wider HPCS 2011 community and included in the conference proceedings. Hence we invite you to prepare the abstracts with care. The program committee will review and select submissions for demos and exhibits sessions and notify authors about acceptance by the extended deadline of April 1, 2011.

A proposal to present a demo should contain the following information:

  • Demo Title

  • Full Name(s), Affiliation(s) and Contact Information of the Instructor(s)

  • Extended Abstract (500-1000 words) detailing (a) the technical subject, (b) its importance, (c) its relevance and benefits to HPCS 2011 attendees, and (d) demo objectives

  • Demo detailed Outline in a medium level of granularity including sections and subsections as well as bibliography (as applicable)

  • Intended audience profile and prerequisites (if any)

  • Expected duration of the demo

  • Expected demo format. (i.e., talks, or talks + demo, etc.)

  • Audio/Visual requirements

  • Biography of the Instructor(s) (100-200 words)

If the demo or its earlier version has been given before, please indicate those respective events in full, with dates, and content. This is an important requirement.

Authors of all accepted demos are invited to provide a short DEMO EXTENDED ABSTRACT (up to 3 pages) describing the demo features. Demo Extended Abstracts will be included in the Conference proceedings. The template is posted on the Authors' Info page.
