NEWS: The best papers from the workshop will be invited to submit expanded versions to Computing in Science & Engineering
Call for Papers (PDF)
This workshop is concerned with identifying and understanding the unique aspects of software engineering (SE) for the development of scientific software that exploits High Performance Computing (HPC) architectures. Specifically, we are interested in:
- Scientific software applications that solve complex software- or data-intensive research problems. These applications range from large parallel models/simulations of the physical world using HPC systems to smaller scale simulations developed by a single scientist or engineer on a desktop machine or a small cluster, which may be later scaled to an HPC enviornment.
- Applications that support scientific research and experiments at scale. Such applications include, but are not limited to, systems for managing and/or manipulating large amounts of data and systems that provide HPC infrastructure for scientific or engineering applications.
- The process for building, reusing, and publishing HPC software and data used in scientific experiments or engineering innovations. Among others, these process include agile approaches, open source/open data issues, testing HPC software, and managing software or data repositories for publishing goals.
Submission InstructionsThe organizing committee encourages participation from members of the SE, computational science and HPC communities. Papers of at most 7 pages are solicited to address issues including but not limited to:
- Case studies of software development processes used in scientific HPC applications;
- Design patterns and software architectures for scientific HPC software;
- SE metrics and tool support for scientific HPC applications;
- Issues in publishing or reusing scientific research software and data;
- The use of empirical studies to better understand the environment, tools, languages, and processes used in research application development and how they might be improved;
- V&V techniques specifically targeted for the scientific HPC domain; and
- SE education for scientific HPC developers.
Accepted papers will appear in the ICSE Companion Proceedings in the IEEE Digital Library. Selected papers will also appear in a special issue of a relevant journal/magazine (pending approval).
In order to increase participation, we will also accept shorter (~3-4 page) position papers. A position paper should include POSITION PAPER in the title.
Please observe the following:
- Full Papers should be at most 7 pages and Position Papers should be at most 4 pages formatted according to the ICSE 2015 guidelines
- Submit your paper in PDF via EasyChair
- Deadline for submission: January 23, 2015
- Submission notification: February 18, 2015
- Camera Ready deadline: February 27, 2015
