Covid-19 Announcement 2: Under the extenuating circumstances due to the international pandemic, HPCS 2020 is going fully virtual/online. Accepted and presented papers in the HPCS 2020 will be published in the conference proceedings as usual and submitted for inclusion in the Digital Library after they are successfully presented at the virtual conference. Information and instructions on how to prepare for the virtual presentation will be posted on the conference website and sent separately. Registration fees for the HPCS 2020 will be adjusted accordingly and posted on the HPCS 2020 website as well.

You are cordially invited to contribute and participate in this conference through paper submission to main track, symposium, workshop or special session, a tutorial, an invited speech, a demo, a poster, an exhibit, a panel discussion, a doctoral dissertation, whichever sounds more appropriate and convenient to you. 

The conference will include invited presentations by experts from academia, industry, and government as well as contributed paper presentations describing original work on the current state of research in high performance and large scale computing systems, their use in modeling and simulation, their design, performance and use, and their applications. There will also be tutorial sessions, workshops, special sessions, demos, posters, panel discussions, doctoral colloquium, and exhibits.  Conference sponsorships are welcomed. 

In addition to the main track, the conference will have the following refereed archived symposia, workshops and special sessions: (some still need co-organizers; please let us know if you are interested)
