SC07 Tech Program Submissions Deadline Extended
RENO, Nevada - March 30, 2007 -- SC07, the premier international conference on high performance computing, networking and storage, has extended submissions for the Technical Program to April 16, 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time.  Sponsored by ACM and IEEE, SC07 will be held November 10-16, 2007, in Reno, Nevada.
Authors of technical papers and Gordon Bell Prize papers will still need to submit an abstract by Friday, April 6.  Please register at the submission website (http://www.sc-submissions.org).

Areas in the 2007 Technical Program include:

 

Submission forms and instructions are available at http://www.sc-submissions.org/. Panels, Tutorial, and Workshop submissions are due Monday April 9, 2007, 11 p.m. Eastern Time.

New Papers and Gordon Bell Prize Submission Procedures
Authors of Papers and Gordon Bell Prize Submissions need to note several changes that have been made this year to ensure a rigorous, high-quality review of all submissions.
A two-part submission process will be used for both Papers and Gordon Bell Prize entries. Authors need to register at the submission web site and submit an abstract no later than Friday, April 6, 11 pm Eastern Time. Then, manuscripts need to be uploaded by April 16, 11 pm Eastern Time.
For the first time, a “blind” submission and review process will be used (for Technical Papers only) at SC. Papers should be submitted without the authors’ names on the manuscript. Moreover, authors should make a reasonable effort to hide their identity. Citations to the authors’ own prior work should be included, but referred to in the third person. Acknowledgments should be omitted. Other identifying references should be removed to the extent possible.  More details are available at http://sc07.supercomputing.org/index.php?pg=papers.html&pp=techprogram.html.
As always, manuscripts will be thoroughly reviewed by the Technical Program Committee, with technical soundness and timeliness being the predominant acceptance criteria. Awards will be given for Best Technical Paper and Best Student Paper. 
A new web page has been prepared with guidelines for authors of Gordon Bell prize submissions at http://sc07.supercomputing.org/html/gordonbell.html.
About the SC07 Technical Program
The SC07 Technical Program will provide a forum of the highest quality for scientists and engineers to present their latest research findings in what is clearly one of most rapidly changing technical fields.  Featuring a wide range of expert speakers presenting both contributed and invited talks over six days, SC07 offers greater opportunity for researchers to influence HPC than any other conference.
“High End Computing is at the leading edge of the IT world and SC conferences have defined that edge,” said SC07 Technical Program Chair Harvey Wasserman of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  “We invite you to submit your work to SC07, the world’s largest supercomputing conference.”
