                            CALL FOR PAPERS
    26th International Symposium on High Performance Interconnects
                               HotI 2019

                          Intel Headquarters
                        Santa Clara, California
                          August 14-16, 2019


Hot Interconnects is the premier international forum for researchers
and developers of state-of-the-art hardware and software architectures
and implementations for interconnection networks of all scales, ranging
from multi-core on-chip interconnects to those within systems,
clusters, data centers, and clouds. This yearly conference is attended
by leaders in industry and academia. The atmosphere provides for a
wealth of opportunities to interact with individuals at the forefront
of this field.

Themes include cross-cutting issues spanning computer systems,
networking technologies, and communication protocols for
high-performance interconnection networks. This conference is directed
particularly at new and exciting technology and product innovations in
these areas. Contributions should focus on real experimental systems,
prototypes, or leading-edge products and their performance evaluation.
In past years the best papers on interconnect microarchitecture have
been invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a special
edition of IEEE Micro, we are pursuing this once again this year.

Building on the last conference’s successful technical program,
keynotes, sessions, and panels on datacenter networking, requirements,
and solutions, in 2019 Hot Interconnects will be held at the Intel
Headquarters in Santa Clara, CA. This year's conference focuses on
data-center, virtualized, and cloud networking. We hope you can join us


 * Deadline for submissions: 		May 10, 2019
 * Notification of acceptance: 	May 31, 2019
 * Deadline for slide submission: 	July 29, 2019


An award will be given to the best student paper. To be eligible, at
least one of the paper's authors must be a full-time student at the
time of submission.

In addition, HotI will provide student travel awards. Information
on travel awards can be found on our web site.

Regular presentations consist of a title, an extended abstract (two to
four pages) and the presenter's contact information (name, affiliation,
job title, address, phone(s), fax, and email). Please indicate whether
you have submitted, intend to submit, or have already presented or
published a similar or overlapping submission to another conference or
journal. Also indicate if you would like the submission to be held
confidential. If so indicated, these submissions remain confidential
until the first day of the conference.

Submissions are evaluated by the Program Committee on the basis of
performance of the device(s), degree of innovation, use of advanced
technology, potential market significance, and anticipated interest
to the audience. Research and software contributions will be
evaluated with similar criteria.  To the extent that you are describing
a product, indicate its status - design, development, tape out,
silicon, shipping, etc.

Presentations at HOT Interconnects are in the form of 30-minute talks.

Papers should be submitted electronically through EasyChair
