Supercomputer Frontiers Europe 2021 will be the seventh edition of the annual conference which was held in Singapore in 2015-2017 and subsequently in 2018-2020 in Warsaw, Poland. The 2020 virtual edition brought together over 1100 registrations from more than 60 countries. Over three days of the conference almost 50 papers were presented. Recorded keynote and invited lectures of the 2020 virtual edition can be viewed here.

PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

  • Full papers describing new results obtained from large scale computations in any domain of science, engineering or comutational humanities (e.g. those based on graphs or networks), new computer processors and architectures, interconnects and networks, quantum computing, AI, big data, neuromorphic computing, omics- of all kinds, and all topics which push boundaries of our understanding, and;
  • Progress reports describing ongoing work on break-through projects related to any of the topics of the conference.

Prospective authors are invited to submit paper electronically in PDF format. Submitted papers will be subjected to a peer review and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

For conference paper submissions we ask the authors to follow the author guidelines that have been set by Supercomputing Frontiers & Innovations Journal. Please see the note below on journal publication.

Journal publication

All authors of accepted papers from the conference will be invited by the SCFE2021 program committee to submit and publish their paper (after further independent review) in a special issue of the international journal of Supercomputing Frontiers and Innovations.
Please refer to the author guidelines that have been set by Supercomputing Frontiers & Innovations Journal.

LANGUAGE

The official language of the conference is English.

MAIN TOPICS

SCFE is a platform for the thought leaders from both academia and industry to interact and discuss the visionary ideas, the most important global trends and substantial innovations in supercomputing. Each year we focus on somewhat different topics, but we always focus on ideas that are most innovative, ingeneous and have potential to change the course of supercomputing. We also highlight research domains that might present the greatest potential of becoming the leading applications of supercomputers in the future.

Tentatively, the main topics at this edition will be:

  • Supercomputing applications in domains of critical impact in economic and human terms, and especially those requiring computing resources approaching Exascale;
  • Computing at the Edge with an emphasis on high bandwidth networking, distributed workflows, and streaming data;
  • Convergence of HPC, AI, Big Data, Semantic and Graph methods ;
  • Hybrid HPC – Quantum Computing;
  • HPC cloud and contenerisation;
  • Heterogeneous computer fabrics for processors, memory systems, and interconnection networks and their associated programming environments (languages, compilers, libraries, and runtime systems)
  • New processor architectures, optical interconnects, associative memories, interconnect topologies and routing, and interplay of interconnect topologies with algorithmic communication patterns;
  • Omics and Systems Biology;
  • Brain simulations, Neuromorphic computing, Connectome;
  • Knowledge Graphs, graph computations, topology, space filling curves; and
  • Any other topic that pushes the boundaries of computational science and supercomputing to exascale and beyond.

The programs of past editions provide accurate description of the range of topics relevant to this conference.
