The Student Research Symposium (SRS) at HiPC is organized to stimulate and foster student engagement in high performance computing (HPC) research, and to provide an international forum to highlight student research accomplishments in HPC. The symposium will also expose students to the latest research and best practices in the HPC community from academia and industry.
Last year, HiPC SRS featured 21 papers and 18 posters, which were accepted from 51 submissions from seven countries. Besides presentations and poster exhibits by student authors, the one-day symposium this year will feature invited talks by leading HPC researchers/practitioners. The HiPC conference reception will provide an opportunity for students to interact with HPC researchers and practitioners (and recruiters) from academia and industry.
We invite submission of extended research abstracts of 5 pages for the HiPC SRS. All topics relevant to the HiPC conference are of interest to this symposium. These include, but are not limited to:
* High-Performance Computing
* Parallel and Distributed Algorithms/Systems
* Parallel Languages and Programming Environments
* Hybrid Parallel Programming with GPUs and Accelerators
* Load Balancing, Scheduling and Resource Management
* Resilient/Fault-Tolerant Algorithms and Systems
* Scientific/Engineering/Commercial Applications and Workloads
* Emerging Applications such as Biotechnology and Nanotechnology
* Cluster, Cloud, and Grid Computing
* Heterogeneous Computing
* Interconnection Networks and Architectures
* Scalable Servers and Systems
* High Performance/Scalable Storage Systems
* Power-Efficient and Reconfigurable Architectures
* Compiler Technologies for High-Performance Computing
* Software Support and Advanced Micro-architecture Techniques
* Operating Systems for Scalable High-Performance Computing
The extended abstracts should be submitted in PDF format. The document should be at most 5 letter size (8.5in x 11in) pages in 11 pt or 12 pt font, single spaced, with at least one-inch margins on all sides. Please identify the names of student authors in a footnote. If some part of your submission was published by you previously, then you should cite your prior work and indicate how the current submission differs from it.
Submissions will be handled electronically. Detailed submission instructions will be posted at the Student Symposium web site by August 15, 2012: www.hipc.org/hipc2012/studentsymposium.php
The selected extended abstracts will be published online on the conference web site and on a CD to be distributed at the conference. They will not be part of the official HiPC conference proceedings.
Selection will be competitive and all submissions will be reviewed. Manuscripts will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees.
For additional details, please contact the Symposium Co-Chairs at
student_symposium AT hipc.org
The research work presented in the submission should primarily be the result of student research. Accepted papers and posters should be presented by a student author. The student author should have been a full-time student at some point in 2012. Non-student co-authors are permitted.
AWARDS AND SCHOLARSHIPS
Awards for Best Poster and Best Presentation will be presented at the symposium.
ANSYS sponsored three awards in 2011 for a total of INR 40,000 and the IEEE
Technical Committee on Parallel Processing sponsored awards in prior years. We expect a similar level of sponsorship this year.
Several scholarships in the form of travel grants to cover part or all of travel, boarding and registration are available to authors of accepted papers. Local student authors of the top few submissions at the symposium will be assured of a travel scholarship.
A book containing the resumes of the students participating in the symposium will be compiled and made available to the sponsors of the HiPC 2012 conference.
