HPSR 2020 : The 2020 IEEE 21st International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing
Conference Series : High Performance Switching and Routing
Call For Papers
The 2020 IEEE 21st International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing (HPSR 2020) will be held at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, USA, from the 11th to the 14th of May. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society.
IEEE HPSR will address numerous challenges of today’s data networks, which are being subject to significant changes driven by cloud computing, Internet of things and other new concepts. As a result, new technologies are needed to efficiently and effectively cope with the resulting traffic demands. It is important that researchers gather to share their ideas and progress in solving these future challenges that the Internet as a whole is facing. Most notably, these challenges include narrowing the digital-divide between industrialized and developing countries, offering to the latter all the advantages that come with access to high-speed Internet and the services it provides; handling the bandwidth and delay requirements of multimedia services, P2P, and cloud computing applications; deploying IPv6 and providing smooth migration from IPv4; deploying large datacenters and enhancing their switching capabilities; and achieving high energy efficiency in switching and routing equipment. These are only some of the factors that are driving the demand for switching and routing capabilities that are more intelligent, efficient, and reliable than ever before.
PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Submitted papers must be unpublished and should not be under consideration elsewhere at the same time. Papers should not exceed 6 pages in two-column IEEE Transactions style. Accepted papers longer than 6 pages will be charged for each extra page. Papers cannot be longer than 8 pages. Papers should be submitted as PDF files through the EDAS system. All submitted papers will be subject to three or more independent reviews.
Papers may be requested for oral or poster presentation, if accepted. The committee will do all possible to comply with the request, but it is not guaranteed. In any case, all submissions will go through the same review process.
Please use the Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX formats, which are found here. You may also use one of the following templates for Microsoft Word: A4, US letter. Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process, and all submissions must be done through EDAS.
Papers should not have plagiarized material and should not have been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). Check these links to learn more:
– IEEE Policy on Plagiarism
– IEEE Policy on Double Submission
For an accepted paper to be published in the IEEE HPSR 2020 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of the accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by the registered author at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 2 papers.
TUTORIAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Tutorials are solicited in all HPSR 2020 topics. At most four tutorials are expected to be held with a duration of 90 minutes or 2×90 minutes each. Please submit a tutorial as a pdf document through the EDAS system containing the following sections, each beginning on a separate page:
– Abstract: 200-word (maximum)
– Description of the tutorial (maximum of two pages) must include the following sections:
– Tutorial goals (takeaways for the audience)
– Relevance for HPSR 2020 attendees
– Targeted audience
– Tutorial prerequisites and content level (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
– Summary of general content
– Listing of previous presentations of the proposed tutorial and differences/updates with respect to prior presentations (if any)
– Tutorial length: 90 or 180 min
– A detailed outline of the tutorial (one page)
– Resume of each presenter (one page maximum per presenter).
Accepted tutorials must provide slides and notes for the tutorial as scheduled.
