The 34th ACM International Conference on Supercomputing (ICS-2020), the premier international forum for the presentation of research results in HPC systems, will be the first-ever virtual ICS organized from Barcelona, Spain.


ACM International Conference on Supercomputing (ICS) is the premier international forum for the presentation of research results in high-performance computing systems.

Contributions to the technical program, workshops, and tutorials are sought covering a broad range of research, development, and application of high-performance experimental and commercial systems, with focus on extreme-scale and heterogeneous supercomputing architectures, integrated software stacks embracing HPC, Big Data and AI, and novel supercomputing applications in science and engineering.

The 34th conference (ICS-2020) was planned to be held in Barcelona, Spain and co-organized by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC-BarcelonaTECH) and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS). Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, the event will be held worldwide in a virtual format.
