With the rapid growth in computing and communications technology, the past decade has witnessed a proliferation of powerful parallel and distributed systems and an ever increasing demand for practice of high performance computing and communications (HPCC). HPCC has moved into the mainstream of computing and has become a key technology in determining future research and development activities in many academic and industrial branches, especially when the solution of large and complex problems must cope with very tight timing schedules.

IEEE HPCC-10 conference is the 12th edition of the highly successful International Conference on High Performance and Communications (HPCC). It provides a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to address the resulting profound challenges and to present and discuss their new ideas, research results, applications and experience on all aspects of high performance computing and communications. IEEE HPCC-10 is sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing.

IEEE HPCC-10 is the next event in a series of highly successful International Conferences on High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC), previously held as HPCC-09 (Seoul, Korea, June 2009), HPCC-08 (DaLian, China, September 2008), HPCC-07 (Houston, USA, September 2007), HPCC-06 (Munich, Germany, September 2006), HPCC-05 (Naples, Italy, September 2005), HPCN-04 (Tokyo, Japan, December 2004), PACT-SHPSEC03 (New Orleans, USA, September 2003), PACT-SHPSEC02 (Charlottesville, USA, September 2002), HPCA-01 (Nova Scotia, Canada, November 2001), HPNCA-00(Delft, The Netherlands, May 2000), HPNCA-99 (Amsterdam, The Netherlands, April 1999).


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Parallel and distributed system architectures

  • Parallel and distributed software technologies

  • Parallel and distributed algorithms

  • Embedded systems

  • Grid, cluster and cloud computing

  • Web services and internet computing

  • Performance evaluation and measurement

  • Distributed systems and applications

  • High-performance scientific and engineering computing

  • Database applications and data mining

  • Biological/molecular computing

  • Network protocols, routing, algorithms

  • Pervasive/ubiquitous computing and intelligence

  • Mobile computing and wireless communications

  • Autonomic, reliability and fault-tolerance

  • Trust, security and privacy

Submission Guidelines

Submissions must include an abstract, five to ten keywords, the e-mail address of the corresponding author and should not exceed 15 pages, including tables and figures. All paper submissions must represent original and unpublished work. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the work. Prepare your paper with free styles not more than 15 pages in PDF file. Submit your paper(s) at the HPCC-10 submission site: http://cse.stfx.ca/~hpcc10/sub/


Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS Press (indexed by EI). Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS and EI after the conference.

Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be published in special issues of the following international journals: International Journal of High Performance Computing Applications (SAGE, SCI and EI indexed), International Journal of High Performance Computing and Networking (Inderscience), The Journal of Supercomputing (Springer, SCI and EI indexed). More journals will be announced soon.
