Call for Papers Program


CARLA 2023 will feature three exciting tracks: HPC (High-Performance Computing), HPC&AI, and HPC Applications.

The conference program includes keynotes, invited talks from the academy and industry, full-article, poster sessions (presenting both mature work and new ideas in research), workshops, tutorials, discussion spaces, and more.

All papers accepted for publication will be included in the CARLA 2023 Proceedings, to be published in Springer CCIS Series — Communications in Computer and Information Science. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in Scopus, DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, and SCImago. The following link contains the list of CCIS volumes for previous editions of the CARLA conference:

Track #1: High Performance Computing (HPC)

The use and development of High-Performance Computing in Latin America are steadily growing. The capabilities provided by clusters, grids, and distributed systems promote research and innovation. At the same time, many applications heavily rely on HPC infrastructure. The topics in this track are related to HPC aspects of hardware and software.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Parallel Algorithms
  • Multicore Architectures and Accelerators
  • Parallel Programming Techniques
  • Parallel programming models, runtime systems and middeleware software
  • Parallel computer architectures
  • Grid, Cloud, and Edge Computing
  • HPC Education and Outreach
  • HPC Infrastructure and Datacenters
  • Large-scale Distributed Systems
  • Industrial Computing
  • High Performance Computing Applications and Tools
  • Quantum Computing


Track #2: Artificial Intelligence using HPC Scale

In order to solve a large variety of problems in multiple domains, AI needs massive HPC systems to run its algorithms. On the other hand, HPC is finding its way to increase its impact on our society thanks to the multiple existent AI applications. In either case, the complexity of HPC&AI systems often requires the use of HPC to tackle realistic problems where both the amount of data and the number of relationships among data elements could be monumental.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Deep Learning
  • Evolutionary Computing
  • Fuzzy Systems
  • Intelligence and Cybersecurity
  • Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
  • Machine Learning
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Neural Networks
  • Social Network Analysis
  • Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence
  • Computer Vision
  • Cognitive Systems
  • Data Mining
  • Data Science


Track #3: High Performance Computing Applications

The HPC-Applications track intends to showcase distinct contributions to advanced computing trends and their applications in the Latin American region. Typical examples can be found in cosmology, particle physics, weather prediction, artificial intelligence, climate modeling, geophysics, molecular biology, molecular dynamics, computational fluid dynamics, nuclear physics, and physical oceanography, among many others. An important goal in this track is to intercede in conforming networks of Latin American research and technological groups towards the development of scientific applications of common interest to our region. Furthermore, it seeks to establish new collaborations and synergies to strengthen the existing links among our scientific communities, in particular with respect to the following general themes: HPC and Energy, HPC and Environmental Concerns, HPC and Life Sciences, and HPC in Science and Engineering. Applications featuring distributed computing, GPU acceleration, cutting-edge ML tools, and related topics are encouraged to submit contributions.
