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. 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). 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. IEEE HPSR 2014 will address the following topics:
- 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
- P2P routing
- Routing in wireless, mobile and sensor networks
- Optical switching and routing
- Switching, bridging, and routing in data centers and clouds
- 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
- High-speed network security
