Notice of Acceptance Date:
10 January 2022

Supercomputing Asia 2022 (SCA22) 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 Asia. Co-organised by HPC centres from Australia, Japan and Singapore, the SCA22 will be held from 01 to 03 March 2022 as a hybrid conference at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The technical papers arm of SCA, Supercomputing Frontiers Asia 2022 (SCFA22), will be held in conjunction with the conference as a key co-located event. The SCFA session aims to provide a platform for thought leaders from both academia and industry to present their research as well as discuss visionary ideas, global trends and the latest innovations impacting the world of supercomputing.

Abstract and Paper Submission

Submission and review of abstracts and papers for SCA22 will be managed via the online conference paper management system, EasyChair. This system gives the author flexibility over the paper submission. Authors can upload their abstracts and check on the review status of their submissions.

Proceedings

The conference proceedings will be published in Springer Nature’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

All submissions for SCFA22 must follow Springer’s LNCS format* without changing default margins, fonts, etc. Authors should use the proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. 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 limit. 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. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. Springer also offers a feature for the inclusion of embedded videos in proceedings papers.

In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

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 should be available to present the paper at SCA22 (1-3 March 2022, Singapore) in person or virtually.
