Call For Papers

Scalability is one of the key evaluation criteria of computing systems. In particular, scalability is essential in HPC systems. High scalability represents a kind of elasticity, which can guarantee high throughput, small delay and high performance. Additionally, with the need to process the data deluge and to solve complex large scale problems, new architectures using computing accelerator, e.g., Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) and Many Integrated Core (MIC) have emerged. Improvements to these architectures are still needed in order to use them in large scale heterogeneous systems. Similarly, new parallel algorithms, software, and tools are needed to improve scalability.

The 19th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and Communications (ScalCom 2021) will provide a forum for researchers to present their original work on scalable parallel and distributed computing. This conference will also offer a unique opportunity to exchange ideas at the highest technical level related to communication networks, performance analysis and distributed applications with particular emphasis on scalability.

We invite submissions of high-quality research papers describing fully developed results or on-going foundational and applied work relating to all aspects of scalable computing and communications. The program committee will interpret it very broadly; everything from engineering principles to practical experiences on different levels of a parallel and distributed system including High Performance Computing (HPC), massively parallel systems and heterogeneous computing. We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the research and development communities.

Accepted papers will be published by IEEE (IEEE DL and EI indexed) in Conference Proceedings. Extented versions of selected papers will be published in the Special Issue "Scalable Computing Systems and Networks in Supercomputing" in Journal of Supercomputing.
