Latin America High Performance Computing Conference (CARLA)
Turrialba, Costa Rica
Conference Dates: 25-27 September,
2019 | Tutorials and Workshops: 23-24 September, 2019
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. Building on the great success of the previous five editions, this year the Latin America High Performance Computing Conference (CARLA) will be held in Turrialba, CostaRica, from September 25 to 27, 2019.

CARLA 2019 will feature two exciting tracks: HPC (High Performance Computing) and BIP (BioInspired Processing). The later is a new addition to the regular CARLA program and focuses on the synergies between Biological Sciences and Computer Science. These synergies are of course bidirectional. On one hand, bioinspired computing applies computational paradigms inspired in Biological Sciences (e.g., genetic algorithms, cellular automata, neural networks) to solve a large variety of problems in multiple domains. On the other hand, Computer Science has been applied successfully and is now considered indispensable to solve many biological problems. In both cases, the complexity of biological systems often requires the use of of HPC to tackle realistic problems where both the amount of data and the number of relationships among data elements could be monumental. The conference program includes keynote and invited talks from academy and industry, full-paper and poster sessions (presenting both mature work and new ideas in research),workshops, tutorials, discussion spaces, and more.
