Call for Papers and Program Highlights

HiPINEB 2018

The 4th IEEE International Workshop on High-Performance Interconnection 
Networks in the Exascale and Big-Data Era

Viena, Austria, February 25, 2018

To be held in conjunction with the HPCA Conference 2018


By the year 2023, High-Performance Computing (HPC) Systems are expected 
to break the performance barrier of the Exaflop (10^18 FLOPS) while 
their power consumption is kept at current levels (or increases 
marginally), what is known as the Exascale challenge. In addition, more 
storage capacity and data-access speed is demanded to HPC clusters and 
datacenters to manage and store huge amounts of data produced by 
software applications, what is known as the Big-Data challenge. Indeed, 
both the Exascale and Big-Data challenges are driving the technological 
revolution of this decade, motivating big research and development 
efforts from industry and academia. In this context, the interconnection 
network plays an essential role in the architecture of HPC systems and 
datacenters, as the number of processing or storage nodes to be 
interconnected in these systems is very likely to grow significantly to 
meet the higher computing and storage demands. Besides, the capacity of 
the network links is expected to grow, as the roadmaps of several 
interconnect standards forecast. Therefore, the interconnection network 
should provide a high communication bandwidth and low latency, otherwise 
the network would become the bottleneck of the entire system. In that 
regard, many design aspects are considered when it comes to improving 
the interconnection network performance, such as topology, routing 
algorithm, power consumption, reliability and fault tolerance, 
congestion control, programming models, control software, etc.

The main goal of the fourth edition of HiPINEB is to gather and discuss 
in a full-day event the latest and most prominent efforts and advances, 
from both industry and academia, in the design and development of 
scalable high-performance interconnection networks, especially those 
oriented to meet the Exascale challenge and Big-data demands.

All researchers and professionals, from both 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.


* Keynote titled "The three L's in modern high-performance networking: 
Low latency, Low cost, Low processing load", will be given by Torsten 
Hoefler, ETH Zürich.

* Selected papers will be invited to submit and extended version to a 
Special Issue of Elsevier Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing 

* Panel session: "Industrial perspective of high-speed communication 
technology evolution", moderated by Dr. Young Cho, Research Assistant 
Professor of Computer Science in University of Southern California, 
Viterbi School of Engineering, and the USC Information 
Sciences Institute (ISI).

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

* Interconnect architectures and network technologies for high-speed, 
low-latency interconnects.
* Scalable network topologies, suitable for interconnecting a huge 
number of nodes.
* Power saving policies in the interconnect devices and network 
infrastructure, both at software and hardware level.
* Good practices in the configuration of the network control software.
* Network communication protocols: MPI, RDMA, MapReduce, 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.
* Interfacing accelerators through the interconnect (GPUs, Xeon Phi, etc).
* Network infrastructure in distributed storage, distributed databases 
and Big-Data.

Furthermore, short papers in the above topics will be also taken into 
consideration, as long as they are based on emerging ideas, 
work-in-progress and early, high-impact achievements.

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.


Regular and short 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 regular manuscripts may not exceed 8 single-spaced 
double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, 
including figures, tables, and references. Short papers may not exceed 4 
single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 
inch pages. At least one author of the paper must be registered for the 
conference workshop. The conference style is based on IEEE (available 
at: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html).

HiPINEB manuscript submissions are managed by easyChair. To submit a 
paper, go to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hipineb2018 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 HiPINEB proceedings, edited by the IEEE 
CPS which will be submitted for indexing and inclusion in IEEE Xplore 
and CSDL.


Best papers among those selected for HiPINEB 2018 will be invited to 
submit and extended version to the Journal of Parallel and Distributed 
Computing (JPDC), Elsevier, 2016 Impact Factor: 1.930.
