CARLA 2024

Call for Posters

CARLA is an international conference series started in 2014 aimed at providing a forum to foster the growth and strength of the High Performance Computing (HPC) community in Latin America through the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in HPC and its applications areas. CARLA has become the flagship conference for HPC in the region. We invite the international community to share its advances on both HPC and HPC&AI (convergence between HPC and Artificial Intelligence) as those two key areas are becoming the predominant engine for innovation and development. In 2024, the Latin America High Performance Computing Conference (CARLA 2024) will be in Santiago de Chile, from September 30 to October 4, 2024. We expect contributions from faculty members, researchers, specialists and graduate students around the world.

Introduction

Posters are an effective way to present in-progress research work, partial or preliminary results, receive valuable feedback from experts in the field, and even develop new ideas. At the CARLA 2024 Conference, we have a space where students and researchers can show their advances in current research and have the opportunity to present and discuss them with colleagues and students. During the conference, poster authors will have special allocated time-slots and public space to show their work to the conference attendees. The sessions encourage network and discussion among peers, leading to possible collaborative efforts to be initiated or nurtured. Research topics for this Call for Posters are the same as the main conference.

Submission guidelines

A poster submission consists of a short abstract with a maximum length of 250 words, accompanied by the title and the list of authors and their institutions. Authors should use the abstract to describe, in a concise way, the scientific problem, their solution, and partial or final results if any. We expect that all submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Use the English language to write your submission. The accepted submissions will be published online in a special repository at CARLA website. We will register all accepted posters with Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) using CERN’s Zenodo.

  • Enable an empty 25mm margin in all sides (that’s about 1in)
  • Save your file as:
    • High-Resolution
    • Print-Ready PDF at FULL SIZE
    • 300dpi (to ensure readability)

Poster presentation
