Call for Posters

CARLA 2023 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 2023, the Latin America High Performance Computing Conference (CARLA 2023) will be in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia from September 18-22, 2023. We expect contributions from faculty members, researchers, specialists and graduate students around the world.


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 new ideas to be developed. At the CARLA 2023 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. A poster submission must be accompanied by 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. We expect that all submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. The accepted submissions will be published online in a special repository at CARLA website. We are currently studying the possibility to register the posters with Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs).
