Share your Technical Papers

 

We are happy to announce the opportunity to publish PEARC18 technical papers to the pre-print server Arxiv.org, in addition to the proceedings in ACM-DL. ACM has confirmed that this is allowed by ACM-DL author rights. This enables authors to share their work with everyone, even prior to the conference. 

Dr. Andrea Zonca has provided instructions on how to do this: 

https://zonca.github.io/2018/05/pearc18-preprint-arxiv.html

 

As an example of the result, please see the preprint of Dr. Zonca's own PEARC18 paper at https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.04781 

 

Please contact him directly at zonca@sdsc.edu if you find any issue.

Submission Content

 

All submissions should make clear their relevance to Advanced Research Computing, as well as identify which track is most appropriate for their submission (see below for definitions).  PEARC18 is organized thematically into four tracks, with one or more submission types populating each track.

 

Papers:  Full papers (5–8 pages) should be submitted using the ACM sigconf template available from:  https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s6rbao74dg2cq0s/AAB1L9lJd7yz-pXbKsz8gpnea?dl=0. Authors should indicate which conference track is most suitable (see definitions below). All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series. At least one author of an accepted paper must attend the conference to make a 15-minute presentation. Student papers: Please indicate if the primary author is a student. To qualify, the work must be primarily the student's, the student must be the primary author, and the student must present the paper at the conference.

 

Tutorials:  A summary should be submitted along with a draft of the tutorial content. The summary should specify if the tutorial targets Introductory, Intermediate, or Advanced skill levels and if it is proposed as a full-day (6-hour) or half-day (3-hour) tutorial. Please specify if a version of this tutorial has been taught before. If so, please identify the venue(s) and the number of participants at the most recent one. Authors should indicate which conference track is most suitable (see definitions below).

 

Posters: An abstract and optional mockup should be submitted. Poster size: maximum of 3.5 ft (1.1 m) wide by 4 ft (1.2 m) tall. Authors should indicate which conference track is most suitable (see definitions below). Those authors of accepted posters who wish to have their work  included in the Proceedings, will need to provide a 2- to 4-page camera-ready version of the poster in the format located here by the June 1 content deadline. At least one author of an accepted poster must attend the conference to present during the Poster Reception. Student posters: Please indicate if the primary author is a student. To qualify, the work must be primarily the student's, the student must be the primary author, and the student must present the poster.

Showcase: An abstract linking to the proposed content should be submitted.  The content should be ready for viewing, downloading or running. Authors should indicate which conference track is most suitable (see definitions below).Those authors who wish to be included in the published conference Proceedings will need to provide an extended abstract (2–4 pages) using the format located here detailing the application, the data, and the techniques and tools applied. Student showcase: Please indicate if the primary author is a student. To qualify, the work must be primarily the student's, the student must be the primary author, and the student must present the content.

 

Panels and BoF Sessions:  Proposals should discuss the topic and the specific contribution of each organizer or panelist. Please specify if a version of this session has been organized before. If so, please identify the venue(s) and the number of participants at the most recent one. Authors should indicate which conference track is most suitable (see definitions below).

Workshops and Special Events: Proposals should describe the purpose of the meeting and whether it is open or closed to general attendees and its alignment with the PEARC18 conference goals, the anticipated number of attendees, the preferred duration, and any special requirements, such as extra food or specialized room setups. Authors should indicate which conference track is most suitable (see definitions below). Groups taking advantage of this opportunity are expected to have their attendees register for the conference and hotel block. Costs for extra food or specialized room setups will be borne by the group.

Parallel Tracks
