PDF version of Call for Papers

IEEE HPSR 2017 will address numerous challenges of today’s data networks, which are being subject to significant changes driven by cloud computing, Internet of things and other new concepts. As a result, new technologies are needed to efficiently and effectively cope with the resulting traffic demands. It is important that researchers gather to share their ideas and progress in solving these future challenges that the Internet as a whole is facing. Most notably, these challenges include narrowing the digital-divide between industrialized and developing countries, offering to the latter all the advantages that come with access to high-speed Internet and the services it provides; handling the bandwidth and delay requirements of multimedia services, P2P, and cloud computing applications; deploying IPv6 and providing smooth migration from IPv4; deploying large datacenters and enhancing their switching capabilities; and achieving high energy efficiency in switching and routing equipment. These are only some of the factors that are driving the demand for switching and routing capabilities that are more intelligent, efficient, and reliable than ever before.

Examples of research areas considered in IEEE HPSR 2017 include:

  • Architectures of high-performance switches and routers
  • High-speed packet processors
  • Address lookup algorithms
  • Packet classification, scheduling, and dropping
  • Switching, bridging, and routing protocols
  • Latency and buffer control
  • Multicasting and P2P routing
  • Routing in wireless, mobile and sensor networks
  • Optical switching and routing
  • Switching, bridging, and routing for datacenters and clouds applications
  • Internet of Things and Content Delivery Networks
  • Software defined networking
  • Data placement and migration
  • Multiprocessor networks
  • Network management
  • Pricing, accounting, and charging
  • QoS and scalability of switching, bridging, and routing
  • Traffic characterization and engineering
  • Power-aware switching, bridging, and routing protocols
  • Network security
