Closed Call for Papers: Special Issue on the Future of HPC

Share this on:
Submissions Due: 15 July 2022

Can you predict the future? If so, consider submitting a paper to this special issue. We consider anything from 1 to 20 or more years out to be the “future,” but more important than time is the change in how high-performance computing (HPC) is created, delivered, and used. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Convergence of HPC, AI, and data analytics
• New compute architectures and accelerators
• Communication and interconnect technologies
• Advanced memory and storage technologies
• HPC as a Service and HPC in the Cloud
• Heavy and light edge
• HPC workflows
• Heterogeneous programming environments
• Novel applications and industry verticals
• Societal, legal, and ethical aspects
