Due to numerous requests we decided to accept for the CLCAR Conference, the Short and Full papers written in Portuguese and Spanish, in addition to English. The abstract, however, must still be written in English. Please use the link in our Submissions page to submit your paper.

The Latin-American Conference on High Performance Computing (CLCAR) is an event for students, teachers and researchers in the areas of High Performance Computing, High Throughput Computing, Parallel and Distributed Systems, E-science and applications. Its first edition has taken place in Colombia in 2007, and since then CLCAR has gathered scientists from the whole world, with special attention to Latin American research.

The community is welcome to submit research papers, written in English, Portuguese or Spanish; however, the abstract must be written in English. The papers should be submitted in PDF following the IEEE guidelines (see the styleguides on the Web site for more details). Two kinds of submission are accepted: Full papers, which must not exceed 8 double column pages, and short papers, not exceeding 3 pages.

The selected full papers will be presented at the conference in one of the three official languages (English, Portugues and Spanish), with slides in English. The selected short papers will be presented at the conference as posters. Selected full papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of an indexed journal.
