CALL FOR PAPERS
24th International Symposium on High Performance Interconnects
Huawei North America Headquarters
Santa Clara, California
August 24-26, 2016
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,
datacenters, 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
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.
Additional topics of interest are listed below.
This year's best papers on interconnect microarchitecture will be
invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a special edition
of IEEE Micro.
Building on last year's successful technical program, keynotes,
sessions, and panels on datacenter networking, requirements, and
solutions, in 2016 Hot Interconnects will be held at the Huawei North
America Headquarters in Santa Clara, CA. This year's conference focuses
on data-center, virtualized, and cloud networking. We hope you can join
