High-Performance Computing (HPC) Symposium 2008 - 37th JAIIO
Santa Fe, Argentina
September 10-11, 2008

The use and development of High-Performance Computing (HPC) in Latin
America is steadily growing. New challenges come from the new
capabilities provided by clusters, grids, and distributed systems for
HPC, promoting research and innovation in this area. The HPC Symposium
(HPCS 2008), Santa Fe , Argentina , on September 2008, will bring
together researchers, developers, and users of HPC to discuss new
ideas, experiences, and problems. HPCS 2008 will be part of the 37th
Argentine Conference on Computer Science and Operational Research (37
JAIIO), the international conference of the Argentine Society for
Computer Science and Operational Research (SADIO). The full 37 JAIIO
Conference will be held on September, including symposia in other
relevant areas.

The main goal of HPCS 2008 is to provide a regional forum for the
exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in
HPC. The symposium will feature invited talks, tutorials, short- and
full-paper sessions presenting both mature work and new ideas in
research and industrial applications. Suggested topics of interest
include, but are not restricted to:

    * Distributed and Grid Computing
    * Parallel Algorithms and Architectures
    * High Performance Applications
    * High Performance Software Tools
    * Virtualization in High Performance Computing
    * Visualization and Data Management
    * Tools and Environments for High Performance System Engineering
    * Component Technologies for High Performance Computing
    * Parallelism and Data Sharing on Multi-core Architectures
    * Graphics Processing Units in High Performance Computing
    * Country-wide Grid Initiatives

Instructions for Authors

Submissions of short- and full-papers must follow the following
format: they must be written in English, Spanish, or Portuguese (but
papers in English are strongly recommended), 11 points font,
double-spaced, A4 (210 x 297 millimeters) paper, and include
keywords. Submissions will be handled electronically through the JEMS
conference management system.

The authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be
presented at the symposium. At least one author of each accepted paper
must be duly registered for the symposium in order for the paper to be
scheduled in the papers session and to appear in the 37 JAIIO

Short papers/Extended abstracts

Authors are invited to submit short papers (also called Extended
Abstracts) for results that are too late to be submitted as regular
full-length papers. Short papers must not exceed 4 pages. Short papers
accepted for the program will appear in the JAIIO proceedings (in
short form - not expanded to full papers - and with Extended Abstract
in the title) and be presented orally during the symposium (in
suitably shorter speaking slots) as a regular part of the program.

Regular full-length papers

Full papers must not exceed 12 pages, including name, affiliation and
address of the author(s), figures, tables, and references, and an
abstract of no more than 200 words. All full paper submissions will be
carefully reviewed by at least two experts and returned to the
author(s) with comments to ensure the high quality of accepted
papers. Full papers accepted for the program will appear in the JAIIO
proceedings.  Preliminary Program

Introductory and advanced tutorials on HPC and related topics are
planned. A Panel Discussion on the opportunities for growth of HPC in
Latin America will be organized.
