Abstracts for the two exciting keynotes available!

ICS is the premier international forum for the presentation of research results in high-performance computing systems. The 21st annual conference will include invited talks, tutorials, workshops, and panels in addition to regular technical sessions. Papers are solicited on all aspects of research, development, and application of high-performance experimental or commercial systems, including but not limited to:
  • Computationally challenging scientific and commercial applications;
  • Hardware building blocks: high-performance and power-aware micro-architectures, multithreaded, multi-core and multiprocessor systems able to exploit different levels of parallelism, interconnection networks, memory organization and parallel storage and I/O;
  • Software building blocks: programming models, restructuring and optimizing compilers and runtime systems, application development and performance tuning tools, novel infrastructures for Internet and Grid computing, operating systems and autonomic components at all levels;
  • Performance evaluation studies and theoretical underpinnings of any of the above topics.

Papers should not exceed 6,000 words, and should be submitted electronically, in pdf format, using the ICS website. The review process will include a rebuttal period. The submission deadlines are given below.

Workshop and tutorial proposals will also be solicited and due by (tentatively) March 19th, 2007. For further information and future updates, refer to the ICS'07 web site or contact the General or Program Chairs.
