Write for Us
As a dynamic portal for information relevant to the HPC and cloud community, we are interested in hearing what you have to say. Whether you’d like to present a research piece dedicated to introducing readers to a new concept or technology or a fact-based analysis of existing HPC and cloud-based news or conversation item, we are all ears. If your concept does not fall into the category of research or analysis, remember that we are also willing to consider interview-based material and other feature ideas.
To submit your item, send either the whole completed piece or a detailed synopsis of your idea to the HPC in the Cloud editor using the online submission form. Please make sure to include a brief bio that lists pertinent qualifications and experiences.
For any inquiries regarding your submission:
Tiffany Trader, Editor, HPC in the Cloud
General Content Guidelines
We do not wish to restrict writers with great ideas - if you have a concept for a featured piece that you do not see listed or on the site already, feel free to pitch it directly to the editor. HPC in the Cloud is an open publication aimed at giving voice to important issues, theories, and practical technological applications across the HPC and cloud spectrum.
Aside from leaving the field open for you to be open in your approach, we do ask that you observe a few basic guidelines, including:
- There are thousands of possible topics that are strictly in the domain of HPC or cloud-computing related. We are most interested in articles that explore or have as a foundational basis in the union between the two. Please read through some of the current and former feature articles to see how this has been handled in a number of contexts.
- Make sure that you keep your audience in mind. While there are likely going to be a large base of readers who already know what you are talking about, do not leave out the non-technical readers - clearly explain the background or foundations of your technology or idea before delving into deep specifics.
- Along with the guideline above, also make sure that you have a strong introduction and conclusion so that readers are aware of what your points are at the beginning and are able to tie it all together by the end. Use subheadings within the body where appropriate to better segment text.
- For feature article submissions, your tone should be factual and not opinion-based. If you have an idea that is rooted in opinion, we will be glad to consider giving your room to air your views as a guest blogger. Keep tone in mind as your form the article, remembering to eliminate conjecture and weak language.
- Related to the above guideline: As a community website rooted in current events, trends, and theories about HPC and cloud technologies, we want to foster a sense of respectful openness. While there are naturally going to be companies, technologies, and people we disagree with, the tone must remain as free from personal bias as possible.
- Cite your sources, give credit where credit is due, and respect the important rules governing intellectual property and journalistic integrity.
- Please, no sales pitches, vendor-specific jargon, product verbiage, or any form of advertising.
- Copy accepted for publication becomes the exclusive property of Tabor Communications, Inc. Reprinting or republication must have prior approval from TCI and include notification that it was "reprinted with permission from HPC in the Cloud."
Full of Ideas, Short on Time?
We realize that it is impossible to cover all issues that are of great importance to the community, which is why we want to give you a voice. If you feel that we have been neglecting a particular technology, application, industry, or concept, drop us an email and let us know - even if you don't have time to write a full, detailed article or guest blogger post. We will make sure that your HPC/Cloud relevant thoughts are given ample room in our ever-growing archive of content on these technologies.
