Call for Workshops

Introduction

CARLA is an international conference that since 2014 provides a forum to foster the growth and strength of the High-Performance Computing (HPC) community in Latin America through the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in HPC and its applications areas. In 2022, the Latin America High Performance Computing Conference (CARLA 2022) will be in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in September 26-30, 2022.

Prospective workshop organizers are invited to submit proposals for workshops to be affiliated to CARLA 2022 on topics related to the conferences main subjects. In particular, workshops on challenging, emerging areas related to the conference topics are especially sought. We encourage workshop organizers to plan activities that will provide their participants with a true workshop experience.
