3rd International Workshop on High-Precision, Predictable,
and Low-Latency Networking (HiPNet 2021)

at CNSM 2021, Izmir, Turkey, 25-29 October


Call for Papers

New waves of networked applications continue to push the limits of
what is possible with networks today. For example, Industrial Internet
applications, Augmented Reality, Tactile Internet require ultra-low
latency measured in single-digit milliseconds and do not tolerate no
jitter at all. Economic pressures mandate increasingly cloudification
of real-time applications with precision service level needs. Many of
those applications are mission-critical and cannot afford any loss in
connectivity or even single packets. Collectively, these applications
require networking services that support high-precision and
predictable service levels with associated guarantees that border on
determinism. This requires a rethinking of many of the principles
underlying existing "Best Effort" internetworking technology.

Various approaches are emerging to tackle those challenges. Data
centers with fixed topologies and a constant number of hops rapidly
replace conventional routing and more general Internet
topologies. Networks are becoming more programmable to allow to
custom-tailor and optimize treatment of packets and flows. Related
technologies range from Service Function Chaining to Network Slicing
to SDN. While 5G is making URLLC at the network edge a reality,
momentum for Beyond 5G and 6G is building to push the boundaries of
precision services beyond the edge and across the core. One
overarching question concerns how these technologies can be harnessed
and what additional approaches are needed to deliver on high-precision
and predictable networking. This will involve advances over all planes
of network architectures, such as programming and processing of
packets in the data plane, control interfaces and ultra-low latency
control loops to optimize service levels in the control-plane,
high-precision measurements and telemetry with nanosecond accuracy at
scale, and related platforms and algorithms in the management plane.

The workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers, students and
professionals from industry and academia to discuss challenges,
solution approaches, and work-in-progress to deliver, manage, and
control high-precision and predictable networking services, including
(Ultra) Low-Latency networks, deterministic networking, 6G, etc. The
workshop welcomes papers related to disruptive concepts, innovative
solutions, testbeds, experiments, etc. Topics of Interest include but
are not limited to the following:

- Platforms to manage and operate high-precision networks and
services, e.g. Industrial Networks, Tactile Networks, Augmented
Reality (AR), cloud gaming
- Proof and validation of high-precision service level guarantees
- High-precision measurement techniques for ultra-low latency and
- Service assurance for micro services, for service function chains
- Applications for Inband Network Telemetry and iOAM
- High-precision networking using service function chaining
- In-network service level tuning and optimization; predictable QoS
- Novel network programming models
- Applications of Artificial Intelligence for high-precision
- Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) interconnect and wide-area TSN; IP
and TSN convergence
- SDN applications for high-precision, high-performance networking
- High-precision networking over 5G
- High-Precision networking services using Fog and Edge Computing
- Deployment & operational experiences w/ Industrial Internet, Tactile
Internet, networked AR, cloud gaming
- 5G optimization techniques for ensuring Low Latency
- Testbeds for High-Precision (OAI, MAGMA, etc.)
- Networking optimization for fast processing and delivery (DPDK,
- Microservices platform for ensuring High-Precision (OpenNetVM, etc.)

Submission of Papers

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished papers that are not
already under review elsewhere. Submissions will be subjected to a
peer-review process. Regular papers should be submitted in IEEE
2-column format, with paper length up to 7 pages including references.

Papers have to be submitted electronically in PDF format through the
EDAS conference management system available here:

Authors of selected workshop papers will be fast tracked for
publication in a special issue of the Springer Journal of Network and
System Management (JNSM) on High Precision Networking guest edited by
the workshop organizers.

Important Dates

Paper Submission: July 31, 2021
Notification: September 7, 2021
Camera Ready: September 21, 2021
Workshop: October 29, 2021


Papers accepted and presented at HiPNet will be published open access
on the conference Web site with IFIP copyright, and will be submitted
for possible inclusion in IEEE Xplore, ACM and IFIP Digital
Libraries. To be published in the Workshop Proceedings and to be
eligible for publication, at least one author of an accepted paper is
required to register and present the paper at the workshop. The
organizer reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution
after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the
paper is not presented at the conference.
