The 5th IEEE International Workshop on High-Performance Interconnection
Networks in the Exascale and Big-Data Era
February 16-20 2019, Washington D.C., USA
To be held in conjunction with the HPCA Conference 2019
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 fifth 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.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
The list of topics covered by this workshop includes, but is not limited
to, the following:
* Interconnect architectures and network technologies for high-speed,
* 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,
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
HiPINEB manuscript submissions are managed by easyChair. To submit a
paper, go to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hipineb2019 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. Further details
will be provided soon.
Best papers among those selected for HiPINEB 2019 will be invited to
submit an extended version to a journal indexed in the JCR index.
Further details will be provided soon.
