Call for Papers

Program

CARLA 2022 will feature three exciting tracks: HPC (High Performance Computing), HPC&AI and HPC Applications. The latter is a new addition to the regular CARLA program and focuses on the synergies between Applications and HPC.

The conference program includes keynote and invited talks from the academy and industry, full-article and poster sessions (presenting both mature work and new ideas in research), workshops, tutorials, discussion spaces, and more.

All papers accepted for publication will be included in the CARLA 2022 Proceedings, to be published in Springer CCIS Series — Communications in Computer and Information Science. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in Scopus, DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews and SCImago. The following link contains the list of CCIS volumes for previous editions of CARLA conference: https://link.springer.com/conference/carla

Track #1: High Performance Computing (HPC)

The use and development of High Performance Computing in Latin America is steadily growing. The capabilities provided by clusters, grids, and distributed systems promote research and innovation. At the same time, many applications heavily rely on HPC infrastructure. The topics include HPC aspects on hardware and software

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Parallel Algorithms
  • Multicore Architectures and Accelerators
  • Parallel Programming Techniques
  • Grid, Cloud, and Edge Computing
  • HPC Education and Outreach
  • HPC Infrastructure and Datacenters
  • Large-scale Distributed Systems
  • Industrial Computing
  • High Performance Computing Tools
  • Quantum computing
Track #2: Artificial Intelligence at HPC Scale

AI needs HPC to run its greedy algorithms to solve a large variety of problems in multiple domains. On the other hand, HPC is finding its way to increase its impact on our society thanks to the multiple existent AI applications. In both cases, the complexity of HPC&AI systems often requires the use of HPC to tackle realistic problems where both the amount of data and the number of relationships among data elements could be monumental.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Deep Learning
  • Evolutionary Computing
  • Fuzzy Systems
  • Intelligence and Cybersecurity
  • Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
  • Machine Learning
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Neural Networks
  • Social Network Analysis
  • Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence
  • Computer Vision
  • Cognitive Systems
  • Data Mining
  • Data Science
Track #3: High Performance Computing Applications

CARLA 2022 incorporates a new Track on HPC-Applications for the first time intending to bring to its community distinct contributions on advanced computing trends and their applications in the Latin American region. Typical examples can be found in cosmology, particle physics, weather prediction, artificial intelligence, climate modeling, geophysics, molecular biology, molecular dynamics, computational fluid dynamics, nuclear physics, and physical oceanography, among many others. An important goal in opening this new conference track is to intercede in conforming networks of Latin American research and technological groups towards the development of scientific applications of common interest to our region. To establish new collaborations and synergies to strengthen the existing links among our scientific communities, in particular with respect to the following general themes: HPC and Energy, HPC and Environmental Concerns, HPC and Life Sciences, and HPC in Science and Engineering. Access to large-scale data storage, the processing, and analysis of data often need to be completed within strict time frames, for example, in the context of clinical research and industrial process monitoring. In such situations, exploiting features including distributed computing, GPU acceleration, and cutting-edge ML tools hold considerable promise in speeding up analysis execution times, facilitating the rapid processing of massive data sets.
