International Conference on High Performance Computing
in Asia‐Pacific Region (HPC Asia 2022)
Kobe, Japan & Online, January 12-14, 2022

High performance computing (HPC) is a key technology to solve large problems in science, engineering, and business by utilizing computing power that has been continuously evolving. The International Conference on High Performance Computing in Asia-Pacific Region (HPC Asia) is an international conference series on HPC technologies in the Asia Pacific region, fostering exchange of ideas, research results and case studies related to all issues of high performance computing. The 5th edition, HPC Asia 2022 will be held with the motto “Stepping forward to the Post Moore Era together.” Although we are now entering the Exascale era, the Post Moore era will soon follow, and HPC Asia 2022 will provide a unique opportunity to discuss the challenges towards the Post Moore era. In addition, we need to pay close attention to the integration of HPC and AI: while the “convergence” of HPC and AI has been broadly discussed, the intensive “integration” of those will be essential towards computing in the Post Moore era.

== Scope and Topics ==
High performance computing is a key technology to solve large problems in science, engineering, and business by utilizing continuously evolving computing power. HPCAsia, which is an international conference series on HPC technologies in the Asia Pacific region, has been held several times in various countries in Asia, to discuss issues in HPC and to exchange information on research and development results. Following the success of the past HPC Asia conferences, HPCAsia2022 seeks to nurture an exchange of ideas, case studies, and research results related to all issues of HPC. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

— Applications and Algorithms —
High performance applications (high speed, low memory, low power simulations)
Computational science
Numerical linear algebra and its applications
High performance library and software framework for applications
Parallel and vectorization algorithms
Hybrid/heterogeneous/accelerated algorithms
Fault-tolerant algorithms
Graph algorithms

— Programming Models and Systems Software —
Programming languages and compilation techniques
Tools and libraries for performance and productivity
Performance portability
System management, resource management and scheduler
Optimization for communication and memory
Techniques for testing, debugging, reproducibility and determinism
Techniques for fault tolerance and energy efficiency

— Data, Storage and Visualization —
Big data processing with emerging hardware
Parallel and distributed file systems
Storage networks
Storage systems
Visualization and image processing
Reliability and fault tolerance
Scalable data management
Transaction processing
Integration of non-volatile memory
