Thematic track of the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2021)

Krakow, Poland | 16-18 June, 2021

The International Conference on Computational Science is an annual conference that brings together researchers and scientists from mathematics and computer science as basic computing disciplines, researchers from various application areas who are pioneering computational methods in sciences such as physics, chemistry, life sciences, and engineering, as well as in arts and humanitarian fields, to discuss problems and solutions in the area, to identify new issues, and to shape future directions for research.

ICCS is an A-rank conference in the CORE classification.

Out of the submitted full papers to the main track and thematic tracks, we will select some 30% high-quality papers for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings. These are published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and indexed by Scopus, EI Engineering Index, Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (included in ISI Web of Science), and several other indexing services. The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers.

Call for Papers

The future aims toward increasing parallelism and heterogeneity of

systems to tackle the so-called power-wall while permitting a roadmap

of increased performance. Several challenges rise for programming such

systems. The ALCHEMY track goal is to show some of these relevant

challenges and finding ways to tackle them, while permitting programmers

to focus on important part of application designs and letting compilers

or runtime optimization do most of the work toward good performance.

ALCHEMY is the track of ICCS addressing new distributed and parallel

systems for compute-intensive applications, including heterogeneous

aspects. It is also a good place of exchange between the traditional

HPC domain of research and all the emerging HPES (High-Performance

Embedded Systems) domain, since the programming issues are mostly the

same, with a relatively high cost of communication and the difficulty

to program hundreds of cores often under performance and power usage


The conference theme this year is “Computational Science for a Better Future”,

papers highlighting the role of Computational Science in tackling the current

challenges of our fast-changing world will be particularly welcomed.

For this year track, this means we would want to emphasize on intelligent use of

heterogeneous accelerators and computing in the age of the dark silicon.


Original high quality submission are encouraged on all topics related to
parallel and distributed programming with a focus on heterogeneous computing
including (but not limited to):

High-level Programming

* Programming models and languages

* Compilers for programming languages

* Runtime generation for parallel programming

* Handling heterogeneity in parallel and distributed systems

System and runtime

* New operating systems, dedicated OS

* Dedicated runtimes

* Shared memory, data consistency models and protocols

Hardware architecture

* Architecture support for massive parallelism management

* Specific or reconfigurable accelerators (use of FPGA), many-cores

* Enhanced communications

* New memory technologies (NVRAM)

Operational research, optimizations and AI

* Application, runtime, system and hardware design and sizing exploration

* Task scheduling with heterogeneous processing elements

* Task placement, application mapping

* Performance and energy consumption trade-offs

In-situ systems and user experimentation

* Coping with heterogeneity at the user level

* Deploying Complex applications and AI algorithms on heterogeneous systems

* User feedback on existing heterogeneous architectures
