Supercomputing Frontiers Asia 2020 (SCFA20)

Call for Papers (Update)

Thank you for your support and for submitting your papers!

The selected papers have been accepted for publication in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. For more information about previous Supercomputing Frontiers proceedings you may refer to previous SCFA proceedings on SpringerLink at

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use the proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their 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.


*SCFA Submissions have closed* 

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. SCA20 will be held from 24 to 27 February 2020 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. SCFA 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 SCFA20 consists of four tracks:


Technical Papers Chair

Paper Submission

All submissions for SCFA20 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 SCA20 (24-27 February 2020, Singapore) to present the paper.

Submission and review of papers for SCFA20 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.


The proceedings are planned for publishing with Springer in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series (final approval pending)*. Please contact the Technical Paper Co-chairs or email [email protected] for any questions/clarifications.
