This is an update for the previously published CFP, with information about
the journal Special Issue associated with the workshop

[Apologies if you received this CFP from several sources]

                              HiPINEB 2015

1st International Workshop on High-Performance Interconnection Networks
                Towards the Exascale and Big-Data Era

                 Chicago, Illinois, USA, 8 Sept 2015

     To be held in conjunction with the IEEE Cluster 2015 Conference


Best papers among those selected for HiPINEB 2015 will be published in a
Special Issue of the Springer's Journal of Supercomputing (2013 Impact
Factor: 0.841). Further information will be provided soon.


The main goal of this workshop is to gather and discuss, in a full-day
event, the latest and groundbreaking advances in the design, development
and configuration of scalable high-performance interconnection networks,
especially those oriented towards meeting the Exascale challenge and
Big-data demands.

All researchers and professionals, both from industry and academia, working
in the area of interconnection networks for scalable HPC systems and
Datacenters are encouraged to submit an original paper to the workshop and
to attend this event.


The list of topics covered by this workshop includes, but is not limited
to, the following:

* High-speed, low-latency interconnect architectures and technologies
* Scalable network topologies, suitable for interconnecting a very large
number of nodes
* Power saving policies and techniques in interconnect components and
network infrastructure, at both the software and hardware levels
* Innovative configuration of the network control software
* High-performance frameworks for distributed applications: MPI, RDMA,
Hadoop, etc.
* APIs and support for programming models
* Routing algorithms
* Quality of Service (QoS)
* Reliability and Fault tolerance
* Load balancing and traffic scheduling
* Network Virtualization
* Congestion Management
* Applications and Traffic characterization
* Modeling and simulation tools
* Performance Evaluation

Note, however, that papers focused on topics that are too far from the
design, development and configuration of high-performance interconnects for
HPC systems and Datacenters (e.g., mobile networks, intrusion detection,
peer-to-peer networks or grid/cloud computing)  will be automatically
considered as out of scope and rejected without review.


Papers must be in PDF format and should include title, authors and
affiliations as well as the e-mail address of the contact author. Submitted
manuscripts may not exceed 8 single-spaced double-column pages using
11-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, including figures, tables, and
references. At least one author of the paper must be registered for the
conference workshop.
The conference style is based on IEEE (available at:

Authors can buy up to four additional pages in the proceedings. The first
additional page would cost $100. The second additional page would cost
another $200 (so $300 for the two additional pages). The third additional
page would cost $300 (i.e. $600 in total for three pages), and the fourth
additional page would cost $400 (i.e. $1000 for the four additional pages).

HiPINEB manuscript submissions are managed by easyChair.  To submit a
paper, go to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hipineb2015 and follow
the instructions.


Authors are entitled to submit original papers of high technical quality,
according to the list of topics described above. Papers will be reviewed
based on originality, novelty, technical strength, presentation quality,
correctness and relevance to the conference scope. Papers will be published
in the IEEE Cluster 2015 proceedings, which will be submitted for indexing
and inclusion in Xplore and CSDL.


Submission Open:              3 March   2015
Paper submission:            25 May     2015
Notification of acceptance:   3 July    2015
Camera-ready papers due:      1 August  2015
Workshop date:                8 Sep     2015

All deadlines are set at 11:59 p.m. anywhere on Earth
