HiPINEB 2017

The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on High-Performance Interconnection Networks in the Exascale and Big-Data Era

To be held in conjunction with the IEEE HPCA Conference
5 February 2017
Hilton Austin, 500 E 4th
Austin, TX, USA


The main goal of the third edition of HiPINEB 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.
  • Good practices in the configuration of the network control software.
  • Network communication protocols: MPI, RDMA, MapReduce, 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.
  • Interfacing accelerators through the interconnect (GPUs, Xeon Phi, etc).
  • Network infrastructure in distributed storage, distributed databases and Big-Data.

Further details are provided in the Call for Papers Section.


Best papers among those selected for HiPINEB 2017 will be published in a Journal Special Issue. The selected journal is Wiley’s Concurrency and Computation: Practice & Experience. Further details are provided HERE
