- High performance computing
- Cloud computing
- Big data
- Machine learning
- Computer architecture
- Languages and runtimes
The review process will include a rebuttal period, and the papers will be judged based on novelty, technical soundness, and potential impact on the field.
Abstract submission: January 28th, 2021 (firm deadline, no extension)

Authors will submit papers via the HotCRP conference review software (link). Please use the standard fonts/formatting in the ACM conference proceedings template (https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template). Submissions should be a maximum of ten (10) pages, not including references. Submissions (both abstract and paper) should be prepared for double-blind review, i.e., without author names or other identifying material. Authors should refer to themselves in the third person when citing their own work.
Authors may contact only the Program Chairs about submitted papers during and after the review process. Contacting PC or ERC members about submitted paper(s) is an ethical violation and may be grounds for summary rejection.
The submission system requests information about the authors. This information will not be given to the reviewers.
ICS-2021 follows the ACM Author Representations Policy.
Upon Acceptance of Your Paper
Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection on the Decision Notification Date. At this point, contact authors of accepted papers will receive instructions on how to prepare and submit a final version by the Camera-Ready Deadline.
AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date may affect the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
Your Paper at the Conference
Authors are required to present their work in a scheduled session with other ICS-2021 Papers. Papers whose authors are not at the conference to present their paper may be removed from the ACM Digital Library.
