The main goal of the 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 towards meeting the Exascale challenge and Big-data demands.


  • Interconnect architectures and network technologies for high-speed, low-latency
  • Scalable network topologies, suitable for interconnecting a huge number of nodes.
  • Power saving policies in the interconnect devices and network infrastructure, both at the software and at the hardware levels.
  • 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.
