Call for Papers: Hot Interconnects Conference

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Hot Interconnects Conference has issued its Call for Papers. The event takes place Aug. 19-20 in San Jose, California.

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 year’s the best papers on interconnect micro-architecture have been invited to submit extended versions of their papers to special journal editions, we are pursuing this once again this year.

This year’s conference focuses on SmartNICs and their adoption and use in traditional and non-traditional applications, such as Cloud computing. We hope you can join us there.
