Call for Abstracts
Deadline to submit an abstract is Monday, January 15, 2024 at 11:59 PM CT.
You are invited to prepare an extended abstract for presentation in the technical program at the 17th Annual Energy High Performance Computing Conference hosted by the Ken Kennedy Institute at Rice University, March 5-7, 2024.
Computation, data, and information technology continue to stand out across the energy industry as critical business enablers. Recent advances in machine learning, deep learning, robotics, and AI are emerging, and there is convergence between these emerging areas and HPC. With the end of Moore’s law, challenges are mounting around a rapidly changing technology landscape. However, the end of one era is also an opportunity for advancements and the beginning of a new era – a renaissance for system architectures highlights the need for investments in people (workforce), algorithms, software innovations, and hardware platforms to support system scalability and demands for increasing digitization across the energy sector.
We invite prospective speakers to submit technical program abstracts that highlight technology, use-cases, and solutions that support data-driven discovery and decision making.
Accepted abstracts will be asked to deliver a 20-25 minute presentation, including Q&A, as part of the conference program on March 5-6. Presentations will be recorded and published online on the Ken Kennedy Institute’s YouTube channel. Presenters will need to sign a Media Release Form. Please do not submit an abstract if you are not comfortable presenting in person.
January 15: Abstract Submissions Due
January 25: Abstract Acceptance Notice
Please use the following guidelines when preparing your extended abstract submission:
One page (not including graphics, bio, and references as needed).
Extended abstracts should contain: title; list of all author(s) with identifying and contact information; short abstract (not to exceed 350 words); up to 5 keywords; followed by short sections covering: (1) Motivation, (2) Hypothesis, (3) Methods and Results, and (4) Conclusion. Please review the abstract template.
Extended abstracts must be uploaded as a PDF in EasyChair.
The short abstract and the keywords from your extended abstract must also be pasted into the appropriate text box in the web submission form in EasyChair.
Note 1: This conference will consider and can accept abstracts for work that have previously been presented.
Note 2: Presentation proposals that appear to the program committee as “marketing” will be rejected. Abstracts with a strong and compelling customer use-case with the focus on the innovation knowledge discovery enabled by the solution more than the product can be considered. In cases where you think a marketing message may be a concern, we strongly encourage you to partner with a customer and highlight users and relevant use-cases. Vendors interested in engaging are also encouraged to explore sponsorship.
Complimentary Registration: Upon abstract acceptance, the presenting speaker for the technical talks (1 per talk) will receive a complimentary registration code.
