1st IEEE International Workshop on High-Performance Interconnection Networks 
Towards the Exascale and Big-Data Era

Held in conjunction with IEEE Cluster 2015

September 8th, 2015. Chicago, IL, USA

*** Technical program available here ***
*** Journal special issue here ***

This one-day workshop aims to gather and discuss the last, groundbreaking advances in interconnection-network design, especially those oriented towards Exascale performance, from the point-of-view of both industry and academia. The workshop will consist of a technical session, including worldwide research papers, a panel discussion with members from academia and industry, and a keynote given by a reputed expert in the field of high- performance interconnection networks. The targeted audience is wide, as all the scientific or industrial community involved in the design, configuration or production of interconnection networks for HPC systems and Datacenters may find interesting the workshop scope and contents.
