Click Here for SCFA 2019 Proceedings.

Organised by the National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore, SupercomputingAsia (SCA) is an annual international conference that encompasses an umbrella of notable supercomputing events with the key objective of promoting a vibrant and relevant HPC ecosystem in Singapore. The second edition of SCA will be held from 11 to 14 March 2019 at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The technical papers arm of SCA is a key co-located event named Supercomputing Frontiers Asia (SCFA) which has its roots from 2015 in Singapore. SCF aims to provide a platform for thought leaders from both academia and industry to interact and discuss visionary ideas, important global trends and substantial innovations in supercomputing.

The SCFA19 consists of four tracks:

Paper Submission

All submissions must follow Springer’s LNCS format* without changing default margins, fonts, etc. The total page limit is 18 pages excluding references. Supplementary materials that facilitate verification of the results, e.g., source code, proof details, etc., may be appended without a page limit or uploaded as separate files, but reviewers are neither required to read them nor will they be printed in the proceedings. Hence submissions must be complete, intelligible and self-contained within the 18 pages bound. Papers should have page numbers to facilitate their review. In LaTeX, this can be achieved for instance using\pagestyle{plain}. Each submission must be a single PDF file. Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient background material to make them accessible to the broader community. It should not be submitted in parallel to any other conference or journal. All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, and significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference.

At least one author of an accepted paper must attend SCA19 to present the paper.


The conference proceedings will be published in Springer Nature’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). The camera-ready versions need to be submitted via Springer Nature’s Online Conference Service (OCS) system. Please contact the Technical Paper Co-chairs for any questions/clarifications.
