Call For Papers

3rd Workshop on Advanced Interconnect Solutions and Technologies
for Emerging Computing Systems

Monday January 22nd, 2018, Manchester, UK
Held in conjunction with HiPEAC 2018



The AISTECS workshop promotes research and knowledge exchange on evolutionary as well as revolutionary interconnect technologies, in the perspective of interconnects adoption at all scales: from high-performance computing systems and datacenters down to embedded devices and the Internet of Things.

Interconnects are subject to growing expectations in terms of performance and Quality of Service while being tied to shrinking power and cost budget, as well as thermal envelopes. To this end, the exploration of emerging interconnect technologies along with the design of disruptive/novel ideas at the microarchitectural network level are necessary. Both approaches lead to crucial challenges and interesting design tradeoffs that must be identified to enable widespread adoption of emerging technologies in next-generation computing platforms. Novel interconnect features may also disrupt the expected shape of future computer systems from the design point of view and also from the programmability and/or runtime management perspectives.

The AISTECS workshop aims to foster development of advanced interconnect solutions, for emerging computing systems, and using emerging technologies. To this aims, the workshop gathers a complete range of perspectives, spanning from raw technology issues and solutions up to studies at the overall system level of modern multi-/many-core systems. This encompasses novel network solutions from both academic and industrial researchers.

Submission website:

Papers with up to 4 pages (A4) must be submitted in PDF format and should include title, authors, affiliations and corresponding author email. Papers must be formatted in accordance to the ACM two-column style. ACM Word or LaTeX style templates will be available on the website. Papers deviating significantly from the paper size and formatting rules may be rejected without review. Each paper will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. The submission and review process will be handled electronically via EasyChair:


(To be confirmed) Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library within the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS). Authors will be sent the ACM form and instructions to finalize the camera-ready submission and to complete the publication procedure.


At least one registration is required per accepted paper, and one author is expected to present the paper at the workshop. Registration will be handled via the HiPEAC Conference.
