2012 Latin American Conference on High Performance Computing (CLCAR'12)

Call for Contributions
Since 2007, the Latin-American Conference on High Performance Computing (CLCAR) is an event for students, scientists and researchers in the areas of high performance computing, high throughput computing, parallel and distributed systems, Grid Computing, e-science and applications, in a global context, but with special scope in latinoamerican propositions.
The program and scientific committees of CLCAR 2012 is formed by experts and researchers from different countries and related domains. Competent people from various countries and institutes will carry out the process of evaluating the proposals. CLCAR 2012 to be held in Ciudad de Panama, Panama, in August 27-31.
The best-selected works, after further reviews, will be considered for special awards. GridCast and ISGTW are media partners of CLCLAR Conference series.
