IEEE HPSR 2014
2014 IEEE 15th International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from July 1 to July 4, 2014. Vancouver is world renowned for its diversity of many cultures and ethnicities. It is an ideal place for scientists and engineers from around the world to gather and share their ideas. To learn more about Vancouver you can check out the Vancouver page on this website, and also very nice video and PowerPoint presentations of Vancouver. Past HPSR events were held in Heidelberg (2000), Dallas (2001), Kobe (2002), Torino (2003), Arizona (2004), Hong Kong (2005), Poznan (2006), New York (2007), Shanghai (2008), Paris (2009), Dallas (2010), Cartagena (2011), Belgrade (2012), and Taipei (2013). IEEE HPSR has a long tradition, starting from 1993 when it was held for the first time. HPSR got its current name in 2000, when two workshops merged into HPSR: ATM Workshop and International Workshop on Broadband Switching Systems.
With the unprecedented growth of the Internet as a backbone for communications and information services, it is essential that researchers gather to share their ideas and progress on solving the future challenges that the Internet faces. They include bridging the digital-divide and providing advantages of the Internet to developing countries; handling the bandwidth and delay requirements of multimedia, P2P, and cloud computing applications; implementing IPv6 and migrating from IPv4; deploying large datacenters and enhancing their switching capabilities; and achieving energy efficiency of switching and routing equipment. These are only a few of the topics that have demanded switching and routing capabilities that are more intelligent, efficient, and reliable then ever before.
HPSR Best Paper Award:

"Network and Protocol (re)Design in the Age of Routine Attacks, Backdoors and Gov. Snooping," chaired by Mitchell Gusat. The panelists will analyze/debate the current state of Internet/Cloud networks's exposure to attacks and surveillance, in the light of
- Users' expectations wrt. Privacy, Performance, Neutrality and Security;
- Operator/Vendor's double challenge/opportunity of SDN and NFV.
IEEE and IEEE Communications Society Policies
To ensure appropriate consideration of conflicts of interest during the review process, the ComSoc prohibits changes to the list of authors once a paper has been submitted for review during review, revision, or (if accepted) final publication. The author list may be changed only prior to the submission deadline.
Additional paper submittal instructions can be found on the conference Web site: http://www.ieee-hpsr.org/.
To be published in the IEEE HPSR 2014 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 2 papers.
