The High-Performance Computing Architectures Track on ITNG 2012 is intended to provide a high-quality forum for researchers and practitioners to present their latest theoretical and practical work in this rapidly-changing area. Original papers are solicited in all

aspects of high-performance computing architectures.



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

System-on-chip and network-on-chip architectures

Multicore processor architecture

Application modeling and mapping schemes for multicore/SoC systems

Multicore computing and programming techniques 

Power-efficient architectures and techniques for multicore/SoC systems

High performance software systems and its applications, such as agent systems

Embedded and reconfigurable architectures

Nanocomputers and nano-circuits

Secure and reliable processor designs

Advanced computer architectures for general and application-specific enhancement

Parallel computer architectures

Cloud Computing

Application-specific processor/architecture designs

Cache and memory systems

High-performance I/O systems

Interconnect and network interface architectures

Microarchitecture design techniques: instruction-level parallelism, pipelining, caching, branch prediction, multithreading

Computer arithmetic

Innovative hardware/software trade-offs

Modeling and performance analysis

Complier designs

Security  and Reliability Issues in Storage Systems

Tools and methodology for architecture designs

Verification and testing techniques



Paper Submission:

Papers must represent high quality and previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference,

workshop, or journal. Your submission should include the author names, complete mailing addresses, telephone and

fax numbers, and the email addresses of the authors. Interested authors should email a 6-page summary

of their original and unpublished work including 5 keywords through https://www.softconf.com/a/itng2012/.


Evaluation Process:

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Per ITNG policy, except for invited papers,

all papers will be reviewed by at least three independent reviewers.


Best Student Paper:

The Best Student Paper will be awarded at the conference. To be eligible, the student must be the sole author of

the paper, or the first author and primary contributor. (The winner of the award will present the paper in

a plenary session at the conference). A cover letter to the General Chair/Track Chair must identify the

paper as a candidate for this competition at the time of submission.


Important Dates:
Submission Deadline: Oct. 21, 2011
Author Notification by: Dec. 9, 2011
Advance Registration: Jan. 20, 2012
Camera Ready Due (6 pages): Feb. 10, 20


Important Notice:

The best quality selected papers will be recommended to be published in a special issue of a SCI Index Journal.
