High performance computing is a field of study that focuses on parallel and distributed system architectures, programming languages and models and scientific applications. In the past decade a number of architectures, such as cluster, grid, cloud computing platform, embedded and multi-core systems, have been developed to accelerate many computation-intensive and data-intensive problems.

Additionally, new programming languages and models – such as Map/Reduce, OpenMP, OpenCL and CUDA, amongst others – have been applied to these architectures. Newer and more advanced technologies implemented in parallel and distributed systems have gained more and more attention in recent years. This special issue therefore strives to foster state-of-the-art research pertaining to high performance computing in the area of advanced technologies and innovative applications.
