NPC 2019

The 16th Annual IFIP International Conference on Network and Parallel Computing

August 22 – August 24,2019

Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, China



Performance Computing and Big Data are two main areas where NPC 2019
will provide a dynamic forum to explore, discuss and debate
state-of-the-art technology issues and challenges. Authors are invited
to submit papers on all aspects of high-performance computing and big
data. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


*Parallel and distributed applications and algorithms

–Parallel and distributed issues and opportunities on artificial intelligence application.

–Parallel algorithms for computational and data-enabled scientific, engineering, biological and medical applications.

–Parallel algorithms for accelerators, neuromorphic architectures, and other emerging architectures.

*Parallel and distributed architectures and systems

–Emerging architectures and systems at all scales, from embedded to cloud.

–Systems for enabling parallelism at an extreme scale.

–Power-efficient and green computing systems.

–Neuromorphic architectures and cognitive computing accelerators.

–Heterogeneous multicore architectures and accelerators.

–In-Memory and near-data computing.

–Network and interconnect architectures.

–Storage systems in novel big data architectures.

*Parallel and distributed software environments and tools

–Programming models and compilation for existing and emerging platforms.

–Dataflow programming models, frameworks, languages and environments for data-enabled platforms.

–Virtualization of machines, networks, and storage.

–I/O, file systems, and data management.

–Resource management, scheduling, and load balancing.


should submit the full version of the paper May 15, 2019, AOE. The full
version should be a PDF file following the submission guidelines that
will be made available at the submission website. Papers should be
submitted for blind review. New-idea papers as well as papers that
significantly advance established areas are strongly encouraged.
Submission issues should be directed to program chairs, Pradip Bose and
Quan Chen. We will publish top papers from NPC 2019 in a special issue
of the International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP), and the
proceedings will be published as part of Springer LNCS.
