International Journal of Computers & Electrical Engineering SPECIAL ISSUE ON
Optimization of Parallel Scientific Applications with Accelerated HPC

General Scope
Since 2011, the most powerful supercomputers systems ranked in the Top500
list have been hybrid systems composed of thousands of nodes that includes
CPUs and accelerators, as Xeon Phi and GPUs. Programming and deploying
applications on those systems is still a challenge due to complexity of the
system and the need to mix several programming interfaces (MPI, CUDA, Intel
Xeon Phi) in the same application. This special issue is aimed at exploring
the state of the art of developing applications in accelerated massive HPC
architectures, including practical issues of hybrid usage models with MPI,
OpenMP, and other accelerators programming models. The idea is to publish
novel work on the use of available programming interfaces (MPI, CUDA, Intel
Xeon Phi) and tools for code development, application performance
optimizations, application deployment on accelerated systems, as well as the
advantages and limitations of accelerated HPC systems. Experiences with
real-world applications, including scientific computing, numerical
simulations, healthcare, energy, data-analysis, etc. are also encouraged.
The topics of specific interest for this Special Issue include the

Hybrid and heterogeneous programming with MPI and accelerators.
Performance evaluation of scientific applications based on accelerators.
Automatic performance tuning of scientific applications with accelerators.
Integrating accelerators on existing HPC run-times and middlewares.
Energy efficient HPC solutions based on accelerators.
Storage cache solutions based on SSD accelerators.
Real-world scientific and engineering applications using accelerated HPC.

Submission information.
Submitted papers must be written in English and must describe original
research that has not been published, and is not currently under review by
other journals or for conferences. The papers should be submitted via
journal’s submission website and should adhere to standard formatting
requirements. The author guidelines
for preparation of manuscripts are available online. Manuscripts should be
no longer than 20 pages, including the title page, abstract, or references.
All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted through
the Elsevier Editorial System (EES) at the location indicated. The authors
must choose the Article Type “SI-hpc” at the time of submission.
The special issue will invite extended versions of the best papers of ESAA
2014, “International Workshop on Enhancing Parallel Scientific
Applications with Accelerated HPC" at the EuropMPI/Asia 2014
on September 2014 in Kyoto, but it is also open to other authors. For work
that has been published previously in the workshop or conference, it is
required that submissions to the special issue have at least 30% new
content/contribution. Each submission will be peer-reviewed to ensure a very
high quality of papers selected for the Special Issue.
Important dates:

Submission of papers: November 1st 2014
Communication of first round of review results: January 15th 2015
Submission of revised manuscript: February 15th 2015
Notification of acceptance: April 1st 2015
