The 20th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing and Communications


Exeter, England, UK, 28-30 June 2018

Sponsored by
IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC)


High Performance Computing and Communications has moved into the mainstream of computing and has become a key technology in determining future research and development activities in many academic and industrial branches. Among a series of highly successful International Conferences on High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC), the HPCC-2018 conference is the 20th edition of a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to address the resulting profound challenges and to present and discuss their new ideas, research results, applications and experience on all aspects of high performance computing and communications.

HPCC-2018 will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-art advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, and applications for the HPCC, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future.

HPCC-2018 will be hosted in Exeter, the capital city of Devon and provides the county with a central base for education, medicine, religion, commerce and culture. The city is also home to the magnificent Exeter Cathedral, which dates back to Norman times. Exeter is also ideally placed to base a trip to branch out visiting places such as the famous Dartmoor National Park and the unspoilt beaches of the North and South Devon coastlines.
