ISC 2022 Call for Workshops

PLEASE NOTE: The call for Workshops with Proceedings is currently open for submission!

Attention all potential proposal submitters! We are committed to hosting ISC 2022 on-site and will fulfill all the safety standards prescribed by the German government and health authorities pertaining to Covid-19. Therefore, we strongly encourage submissions from people who plan to attend the conference in person.

Are you interested in hosting a workshop at the ISC High Performance conference?
ISC is now accepting proposals for full- or half-day workshops. The goal of workshops is to provide attendees with a focused and in-depth platform for presentations, discussion, and interaction in a particular subject area.

ISC 2022 will host two types of workshops: (1) workshops that want to disseminate their own call for papers and implement a peer-review process. Accepted papers will be published in post-conference proceedings; and (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 2022 Workshops Committee, which is headed by Hartwig Anzt, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, with
Amanda Bienz, University of New Mexico, USA as Deputy Chair.

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, sustainability of scientific software, 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.




Submission Process

  • Proposal for workshops with their own call for papers:
  • Proposal for workshops without their own call for papers:
  • Upload as single PDF-file


  • Minimum 4 reviewers
  • Peer-review
  • Criteria: originality, significance, quality and clarity
  • By submitting a workshop proposal, you agree to organize and host the workshop at ISC 2022 in Hamburg, Germany
  • Workshop organizers and speakers need to register for an ISC 2022 Workshop Pass. ISC will grant a 100 % discount on one free workshop pass to accepted half-day workshops and two free workshop passes to accepted full-day workshops.
  • The workshop organizers themselves commit to inform their speakers that they have to register for ISC 2022 Workshops and will not automatically receive a free workshop pass.
  • 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.


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 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.


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