Trends in High-Performance Interconnection Networks in the Exascale and Big-Data Era
This is an open call for contributions, but also invites extended selected papers from the 2nd IEEE Workshop on High-Performance Interconnection Networks in the Exascale and Big-Data Era (HiPINEB 2016). Extended versions of conference papers must contain at least 50% new content.
It is expected that submissions will align with the topics of interest to the above conference, and any questions about the scope of the special issue should be addressed to Dr Pedro Javier Garcia and/or Dr Jesus Escudero Sahuquillo.
Manuscripts should not exceed 25 pages in length and must be prepared for publication according to the journal’s Author Guidelines (Wiley template).
Papers should be submitted via Manuscript Central to special issue “HiPINEB2016”.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
The list of topics covered by this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- Interconnect architectures and network technologies for high-speed, low-latency interconnects.
- Scalable network topologies, suitable for interconnecting a huge number of nodes.
- Power saving policies in the interconnect devices and network infrastructure, both at software and hardware level.
- Emerging ideas, work-in-progress and early, high-impact achievements.
- Good practices in the configuration of the network control software.
- Network communication protocols: MPI, RDMA, Hadoop, etc.
- APIs and support for programming models.
- Routing algorithms.
- Quality of Service (QoS).
- Reliability and Fault tolerance.
- Load balancing and traffic scheduling.
- Network Virtualization.
- Congestion Management.
- Applications and Traffic characterization.
- Modeling and simulation tools.
- Performance Evaluation.
Note that papers focused on topics that are too far from the design, development and configuration of high-performance interconnects for HPC systems and Datacenters (e.g., mobile networks, intrusion detection, peer-to-peer networks or grid/cloud computing) will be automatically considered as out of scope and rejected without review.
