The 16th Annual IFIP International Conference on
Network and Parallel Computing (NPC 2019)

August 23 - August 24, 2019

in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, China


NPC is in its 16th year and previous conferences have attracted high quality papers and wide international participation. As in previous years, we will publish top papers from NPC 2019 in a special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP), and the proceedings will be published as part of Springer LNCS.

Submission Information

Submission of a paper to NPC’2019 entails a commitment that, if the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work. NPC’2019 Manuscripts should be submitted via EasyChair at the following link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=npc2019.

Call for Papers

High Performance Computing and Big Data are two main areas where NPC 2019 will provide a dynamic forum to explore, discuss and debate state-of-the-art technology issues and challenges. High-performance computers and big-data systems are tied inextricably to the broader computing ecosystem and its designs and market adoption. They also highlight information security needs and economic competitiveness in ways that distinguish them from most other scientific instruments. We strongly believe that the stake is high, and it is far beyond the boundaries of nations and continents, and should strongly encourage a broad international participation.

We share the view that, during the past decade, the tools and cultures of high-performance computing and big data analytics are diverging to the detriment of both, and the international community should find a unified path that can best serve the need of a broad spectrum of major application areas. Unlike other tools, which are limited to particular scientific domains, computational modeling and data analytics are applicable to all areas of science and engineering, as they breathe life into the underlying mathematics of scientific models.
