CARLA 2020 will feature two exciting tracks: HPC (High Performance Computing) and HPC&AI. The latter is a new addition to the regular CARLA program and focuses on the synergies between AI applications and HPC. These synergies are bidirectional. On one hand, AI needs HPC to run its greedy algorithms to solve a large variety of problems in multiple domains. On the other hand, HPC is finding its way to increase its impact on our society thanks to the multiple existent AI applications. In both cases, the complexity of HPC&AI systems often requires the use of HPC to tackle realistic problems where both the amount of data and the number of relationships among data elements could be monumental. The conference program includes keynote and invited talks from academy and industry, full-article and poster sessions (presenting both mature work and new ideas in research), workshops, tutorials, discussion spaces, and more.

Submission Guidelines

Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for MSWord, for the preparation of their articles: template

Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their articles. To create an ORCID ID please visit

In addition, the corresponding author of an article, acting on behalf of all authors of that article, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form, through which the copyright for their article is transferred to Springer.

  • All submissions must be in English, the only official language of the conference.
  • Regular articles should not exceed 15 pages (including references).
  • Articles must be formatted in the LNCS style of Springer Verlag  LNCS style (see details at
  • All submitted research articles will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers.
  • Only contributions that are not submitted elsewhere or currently under review will be considered.
  • Only accepted contributions presented at the conference will be included in the proceedings.
  • Article submission is handled electronically with Springer’s Online Conference System: OCS
  • All articles accepted for publication will be included in the CARLA 2020 Proceedings, to be published in Springer CCIS Series -- Communications in Computer and Information Science. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in Scopus, DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews and SCImago. CCIS volumes are also submitted to be included in ISI Proceedings.
