Workshops Submission

PLEASE NOTE: The Call for Workshops without Proceedings is currently open for submission

The goal of the ISC workshops is to provide attendees with a focused and in-depth platform for presentations, discussion and interaction in a particular subject area.

ISC 2023 will host two types of workshops:
(1) Workshops that want to disseminate their own call for papers and implement a peer-review process. These have their own requirements and submission schedule. Accepted papers will be published in post-conference proceedings.
(2) Workshops without a call for papers and without proceedings.

Please note the different deadlines for the two workshop types.

Submitted workshop proposals will be reviewed by the ISC 2023 Workshops Committee, which is headed by Amanda Bienz, University of New Mexico, USA, as Chair.


SubmitSubmissions for Workshops WITHOUT Proceedings will be accepted through January 19, 2023.

Workshop organizers, speakers, and attendees will require a
workshop pass.

ISC will grant a 100% discount of one workshop pass to organizers of half-day workshops and of two workshop passes to organizers of full-day workshops.



We are inviting workshop proposals on topics related to all aspects of research, development, and application of large-scale, high-performance experimental and commercial systems for compute-intensive workloads.

Topics include:

  • Architectures, Networks, & Storage
  • HPC Algorithms & Applications
  • Programming Environments & Systems Software
  • Performance Modeling, Evaluation, & Analysis
  • Machine Learning, AI and Quantum Computing

Submission Guidelines

We strongly encourage workshop organizers to submit their proposals as early as possible so that there is enough time to organize the workshop program before the conference.




Submission Process

  • Proposal for workshops with their own call for papers: closed
  • Proposal for workshops without their own call for papers: January 19, 2023, 11:59 pm AoE
  • Upload as single PDF file with important items such as workshop scope, relevance and impact of the workshop for ISC; list of tentative program committee members and/or steering committee; format (e.g., talks, panel sessions, keynote); expected outcome, and strategies for advertise and attract attendees.


  • Each workshop proposal is expected to receive a minimum of 4 reviews
  • Peer review will be used
  • Workshops will be evaluated based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity
  • By submitting a workshop proposal, you agree to organize and host the workshop at ISC 2023 in Hamburg, Germany
  • Workshop organizers and speakers need to register for an ISC 2023 workshop pass. ISC will grant a 100% discount of one workshop pass to organizers of half-day workshops and two workshop passes to organizers of full-day workshops.
  • ISC will provide meeting room facilities and basic technical equipment for the workshops. Workshop organizers/speakers will have to bring their own presentation laptops and adapters.
  • The workshop organizers will have to align their program with the workshop break schedule (morning sessions are from 9:00 am to 11:00 am and 11:30 am to 1:00 pm; afternoon sessions are from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm, with coffee breaks and lunch in between). Catering during coffee and lunch breaks will be provided to all registered workshop attendees.
  • ISC will promote the workshops as part of the regular conference publicity activities. However, it is recommended that workshop organizers use their own channels to further attract attendees to their events.
  • ISC will not be able to cover travel, accommodation, registration fees, and other such costs.

Conference Proceedings

The post-conference Workshop Proceedings will be published with Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

We will organize the proceedings in a lightweight fashion. The workshop proceedings (minimum of 6 pages, maximum of 12 pages per workshop paper) will be published after the conference. Workshop organizers are also free to organize the publication of paper proceedings on their own.

Presentation Materials for Attendees

ISC will make the presentation slides available within the event platform for registered attendees only.
