ISC 2019 Workshops

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

Workshops will be held at the Marriott Hotel on Thursday, June 20, 2019 and will be either half-day (9:00 am – 1:00 pm or 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm) or full-day (9:00 am – 6:00 pm).

From all workshops submitted to the conference, the ISC 2019 Workshops Committee, which is headed by Dr. Sadaf Alam, Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS), with Dr. Heike Jagode, University of Tennessee Knoxville, as Deputy Chair and Dr. Michèle Weiland, EPCC – The University of Edinburgh, as Workshop Proceedings Chair with Dr. Guido Juckeland, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf as Workshop Proceedings Deputy Chair, has selected the following workshops for presentation at ISC 2019:


Full-Day Workshops (9:00 am – 6:00 pm)

Half-Day Morning Workshops (9:00 am – 1:00 pm)

Half-Day Afternoon Workshops (2:00 pm – 6:00 pm)

Presentation abstracts, speaker information and the workshop schedule will be published in April 2019.



We will organize a joint Workshop Proceedings that will be published with Springer similar to the ISC 2019 research papers proceedings. The post-conference proceedings provide workshop organizers with the opportunity to tentatively accept papers for presentation at ISC and make the final acceptance during or shortly after ISC based on potentially revised papers.

We will organize the proceedings in a lightweight fashion. The workshop proceedings (minimum 6 pages, maximum 12 pages per workshop paper) will be published after the conference but we will collect preliminary versions of the papers and make them available during the workshop to your workshop attendees. Workshop organizers are also free to organize the publication of paper proceedings on their own.



The ISC organizers will make the presentation slides available online a week after the event, provided as PDF files. ISC 2019 attendees will receive an e-mail with the access link.

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. Topics include HPC computer architecture and hardware, programming models, system software, performance analysis and modeling, compiler analysis and optimization techniques, applications, deep learning, artificial intelligence, solutions for heterogeneity, reliability and power efficiency of systems as well as how those areas relate to big data and cloud computing.

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.
