Focus and Scope

The Journal of Supercomputing Frontiers and Innovations (JSFI) is a new peer reviewed publication that addresses the urgent need for greater dissemination of research and development findings and results at the leading edge of high performance computing systems, highly parallel methods, and extreme scaled applications. This open access on-line international journal will facilitate rapid distribution of high quality papers, letters, and reviews representing recent advances and views to drive further progress in the important and rapidly progressing field of supercomputing. JSFI will complement other periodicals by providing a forum specifically targeted to supercomputing accomplishments through research, development, and application across the worldwide arena and at the leading edge of ideas and innovations. A strong editorial board will ensure the highest standards of scholarship and quality while emphasizing short time to publication for greatest impact and accreditation. Focused topical issues will be organized by special editors as the need and opportunity arise. JSFI will be published quarterly, made available online, with limited copies distributed in hard copy for library and archival purposes.

Key topic areas germane include, but not limited to:

  • Enabling technologies for high performance computing
  • Future generation supercomputer architectures
  • Extreme-scale concepts beyond conventional practices including exascale
  • Parallel programming models, interfaces, languages, libraries, and tools
  • Supercomputer applications and algorithms
  • Distributed operating systems, kernels, supervisors, and virtualization for highly scalable computing
  • Scalable runtime systems software
  • Methods and means of supercomputer system management, administration, and monitoring
  • Mass storage systems, protocols, and allocation
  • Energy and power minimization for very large deployed computers
  • Resilience, reliability, and fault tolerance for future generation highly parallel computing systems
  • Parallel performance and correctness debugging
  • Scientific visualization for massive data and computing both external and in situ
  • Education in high performance computing and computational science

Peer Review Process

Papers submitted in a JSFI are sent out to peer reviewers, although submissions that are out of scope for the journal or are of an unacceptably low standard may be rejected without review. Potentially suitable manuscripts will generally be reviewed by at least two experts in the field with the aim of reaching a first decision as soon as possible. Reviewers are asked to declare their conflicting interests, if any.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate and free of charge open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. The publication in articles appearing in the journal are also free of charge for the authors.
