Welcome Message

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.

Among a series of highly successful International Conferences on High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC), the HPCC-2019 conference is the 21st edition of 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-2019 is sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC).

The 2019 High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC-2019) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-art advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, and applications for the HPCC, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future.Extended versions of selected best papers will appear in SCIE-indexed international journals, such as IEEE Internet of Things Journal (IF:5.863), IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics (IF:5.43), Information Sciences (IF:4.305), Neural Computing and Applications (IF:4.213), Neurocomputing (IF:3.241) and Software: Practice and Experience (IF:1.338).

HPCC-2019 will be hosted in Zhangjiajie. It is the first national forest park in China and one of the most important tourist cities in China.It is located in the northwest of Hunan province, about 400 kilometers away from Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, covering a total area of 9,563 square kilometers, of which 76% are mountainous area. Zhangjiajie was listed into the World Natural Heritage Catalogue by the UNESCO in 1992. Zhangjiajie was awarded the title of “World Geological Park” in 2004.

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers to HPCC-2019. All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI). The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in conjunction with the conference.
