The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on High-Performance Interconnection Networks in the Exascale and Big-Data Era
Held in conjunction with IEEE HPCA 2016
March 12, 2016. Barcelona, Spain
The main goal of the second HiPINEB workshop is to gather and discuss in a full-day event the latest and most prominent efforts and advances, both from industry and academia, in the design and development of scalable high-performance interconnection networks, especially those oriented to meet the Exascale challenge and Big-data demands.
The list of topics covered by this workshop 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.
- Submission Opens: 15 October 2015
