            High-Performance Computing Symposium 2009 (HPC2009)

                                 Mar del Plata, Argentina

                                     August 26-27, 2009

                                     held as part of the

               38th JAIIO – Argentine Multiconference on Informatics

                                    August 24-28, 2009




Building on the great success of the first HPC symposium in 2008, this year's

conference aims to bring together researchers, developers, and users of HPC to

discuss new ideas, experiences, and problems.

HPC2009 will be part of the 38th Argentine Conference on Computer
Science (38 JAIIO

– http://www.38jaiio.org.ar/), the international conference of the
Argentine Society for

Computer Science (SADIO), to be held in Mar del Plata, Argentina, on
August 2009.

The use and development of High-Performance Computing (HPC) in Latin America 

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 main goal of HPC2009 is to provide a regional forum fostering the
growth of the

HPC community in Latin America through the exchange and dissemination
of new ideas,

techniques, and research in HPC.

As in its first edition, the symposium will feature invited talks from
academy and

industry, 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

* Cloud Computing

* 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 be written in English, and
prepared according to

Springer's LNCS style (guidelines are available at:

Papers must not have been previously published or submitted elsewhere.
Submissions will be

handled electronically through EasyChair.

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 Symposium and 38 JAIIO proceedings.

Regular full-length papers


Full papers must not exceed 16 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 proceedings.

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 proceedings
(in short form - not
