Building on the great success of the first two editions of the HPC symposium in 2008 and 2009, this year's conference aims to bring together researchers, developers, and users of HPC to discuss new ideas, experiences, and problems.
HPC2010 will be part of the 39th Argentine Conference of Informatics (39 JAIIO), the international conference of the Argentine Society for Informatics (SADIO), to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on August 2010.
The use and development of High-Performance Computing (HPC) in Latin America is steadily growing. New challenges come from the new capabilities provided by clusters, grids, and distributed systems for HPC, promoting research and innovation in this area.
The main goal of HPC2010 is to provide a regional forum fostering the growth of the HPC community in Latin America through the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in HPC.
The symposium will feature invited talks from academy and industry, tutorials, short- and full-paper sessions presenting both mature work and new ideas in research and industrial applications.

Suggested topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Distributed and Grid Computing
  • Parallel Algorithms and Architectures
  • High Performance Applications
  • High Performance Software Tools
  • Virtualization in High Performance Computing
  • Visualization and Data Management
  • Cloud Computing
  • Tools and Environments for High Performance System Engineering
  • Component Technologies for High Performance Computing
  • Parallelism and Data Sharing on Multi-core Architectures
  • Graphics Processing Units in High Performance Computing
  • Country-wide Grid Initiatives
Symposium will be held in Buenos Aires City
