The main goal of CARLA is to provide a forum fostering the growth of the HPC community in Latin America, through the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in HPC. CARLA will feature invited talks from academy and industry, short‐ and full‐paper sessions presenting mature work and new ideas in research and industrial applications.
Suggested topics of interest include, but are not restricted to: Distributed Systems, Parallel Algorithms and Concurrency; GPU and MIC Computing; Mobile, Grid & Cloud Computing; Big data, Data Management & Visualization; Scientific Computing & Computing Applications; Architecture, Infrastructure and HPC Data Center; HPC Computing Education and Outreach; Industrial Solutions.


 
INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS
Authors are invited to submit full and short papers written in English, according to the Springer LNCS/CCIS style.
