The ISC research paper sessions provide world-class opportunities for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to present and discuss issues, trends and results that will shape the future of high performance computing (HPC), Networking, Storage and AI/Machine Learning.
Submitted research paper proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2020 Research Papers Committee, which is headed by Prof. Saday Sadayappan, University of Utah and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA, with Brad Chamberlain, CRAY, USA, as Deputy Chair.
The ISC organizers as well as the German Gauss Center for Supercomputing will again sponsor the call for research papers with two awards for outstanding research papers: the Hans Meuer Award and the GCS Award. Each accepted paper will be considered for the awards.
The Hans Meuer Award and the GCS Award winner will receive a cash prize of 5,000 Euros each.
Submissions will be accepted through Monday, October 21, 2019.
Attendance will require a Conference Pass.
*ISC will grant a 100% discount on the conference day pass to paper presenter on day of presentation.
Please find the ISC 2019 registration fees here. ISC 2020 registration fees will be published in January 2020.

Gold OA makes the final version of a research paper freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Paper submissions are required to be within 18 pages in LNCS style. For the camera-ready version, authors are automatically granted one extra page to incorporate reviewer comments.
Volumes published as part of the LNCS series are made available to the following indexing services: Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI), part of Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus, Zentralblatt MATH.]
PRESENTATION SLIDES FOR ATTENDEES
The ISC organizers will make the presentation slides available online a week after the event, provided as PDF files. ISC 2020 attendees will receive an e-mail with the access link.
