Le CENTRE DE CONGRÈS de CAEN
for Doctoral Dissertation Consortium Abstracts
(Extended Abstract Submission Deadline: February 28, 2010)
PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The 2010 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS
2010) is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in high
performance and large scale computing systems, their use in modeling and simulation, their
design, performance and use, and their impact. The Conference will be held on June
28 to July 2, 2010 in Caen, Normandy, France in conjunction with the International
Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2010).
The conference will include a session for student doctoral work presentations.
The HPCS Doctoral Consortium is intended to bring together PhD students working on HPCS
related topics, to provide them a friendly forum and an opportunity to present, discuss
and illustrate their ongoing research in a constructively critical and informal
atmosphere, to obtain valuable feedback from conference attendees, particularly senior
researchers and experts in the field. Additionally, the consortium is meant to
facilitate the interaction and collaboration with other researchers. Doctoral
students who have not defended their thesis before HPCS 2010 are invited to participate in
the HPCS Doctoral Consortium. Students at various stages of their PhD program are
encouraged to submit their work, either as full papers or as extended abstracts.
Students presenting their work at HPCS 2010 may apply for Student Travel Grant that we
hope to make available (tentative) as posted on the HPCS 2010 web site.
(but are not limited to):
All HPCS related topics.
DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM SUBMISSION
Students interested in participating in the HPCS Doctoral Consortium are requested to
submit an extended abstract between 1-3 pages (written in English, in the posted IEEE
format, single-spaced, double-column, including figures, tables, and references) with the
following: title, name, affiliation and contact information; name of dissertation
advisor(s); an introduction to the research (problem definition, research motivations,
background and literature review); method used and proposed solution (idea, existing and
planned proposals, innovative aspects of the solution); current status of the research and
expected results; plans to complete the research; and expected contributions.
Include up to 6 keywords from the topics list. Add "
Doctoral Dissertation Consortium Extended Abstract
" under the title, author and affiliation.
Students should also provide a reference letter by their dissertation advisor. Paper
and letter should be sent electronically as WORD and pdf documents to Dissertation
Consortium Co-Chairs as email attachments. Also, include a note stating how you
expect to benefit from attending the Doctoral Consortium.
Contributions will be reviewed and selected based on quality, relevance, and research
phase. The selection process will focus on opportunity to benefit from
participation, rather than finished research. All accepted doctoral abstracts are
required to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings.
