HPCC-2012, 14th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing and Communications, June 25-27, 2012, Liverpool, UK

The 14th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC-2012) will be held from June 25 to June 27 2012 in Liverpool, UK. The conference is sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC). The HPCC-2012 conference provides a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to address the resulting profound challenges and to present and discuss their new ideas, research results, applications and experience on all aspects of high performance computing and communications.

HPCC-2012 is the next event in a series of highly successful International Conferences, previously held as HPCC-11 (Banff, Canada, September 2011), HPCC-10 (Melbourne, Australia, September 2010), HPCC-09 (Seoul, Korea, June 2009), HPCC-08 (Dalian, China, September 2008), HPCC-07 (Houston, USA, September 2007), HPCC-06 (Munich, Germany, September 2006), HPCC-05 (Naples, Italy, September 2005), HPCN-04 (Tokyo, Japan, December 2004), PACT-SHPSEC03 (New Orleans, USA, September 2003), PACT-SHPSEC02 (Charlottesville, USA, September 2002), HPCA-01 (Nova Scotia, Canada, November 2001), HPNCA-00(Delft, The Netherlands, May 2000), HPNCA-99 (Amsterdam, The Netherlands, April 1999).

INTRODUCTION
With the rapid growth in computing and communications technology, the past decade has witnessed a proliferation of powerful parallel and distributed systems and an ever-increasing demand for practice of high performance computing and communications (HPCC). HPCC has moved into the mainstream of computing and has become a key technology in determining future research and development activities in many academic and industrial branches, especially when the solution of large and complex problems must cope with very tight timing schedules.

HPCC-2012 will be held in Liverpool, a fantastic and popular tourist city destination in the UK.
