"Stepping forward to the Post Moore Era together"

"Integration of HPC & AI"

"Towards HPC Asia-Pacific/Pacific-Rim"

Welcome to HPC Asia 2022

High performance computing (HPC) is a key technology to solve large problems in science, engineering, and business by utilizing computing power that has been continuously evolving. The International Conference on High Performance Computing in Asia-Pacific Region (HPC Asia) is an international conference series in the Asia Pacific region on HPC technologies, fostering exchange of ideas, research results and case studies related to all issues of high performance computing.

The 5th edition, HPC Asia 2022 will be held with the motto "Stepping forward to the Post Moore Era together." Although we are now entering the Exascale era, the Post Moore era will soon follow, and HPC Asia 2022 will provide a unique opportunity to discuss the challenges towards the Post Moore era. In addition, we need to pay close attention to the integration of HPC and AI: while the "convergence" of HPC and AI has been broadly discussed, the intensive "integration" of those will be essential towards computing in the Post Moore era.

Scope and Topics

High performance computing is a key technology to solve large problems in science, engineering, and business by utilizing continuously evolving computing power. HPCAsia, which is an international conference series on HPC technologies in the Asia Pacific region, has been held several times in various countries in Asia, to discuss issues in HPC and to exchange information on research and development results. Following the success of the past HPC Asia conferences, HPCAsia2022 seeks to nurture an exchange of ideas, case studies, and research results related to all issues of HPC. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Applications and Algorithms

Programming Models and Systems Software

Data, Storage and Visualization

Architectures and Networks

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit technical papers of at most 10 pages in PDF format including figures and references, formatted according to the ACM Proceedings Style and submitted through Linklings (https://ssl.linklings.net/conferences/HPCAsia/).
