Hot Interconnects is the premier international forum for researchers and developers of state-of-the-art hardware and software architectures and implementations for interconnection networks of all scales, ranging from multi-core on-chip interconnects to those within systems, clusters, datacenters and Clouds. This yearly conference is attended by leaders in industry and academia. The atmosphere provides for a wealth of opportunities to interact with individuals at the forefront of this field.
Themes include cross-cutting issues spanning computer systems, networking technologies, and communication protocols for high-performance interconnection networks. This conference is directed particularly at new and exciting technology and product innovations in these areas. Contributions should focus on real experimental systems, prototypes, or leading-edge products and their performance evaluation. In addition to those subscribing to the main theme of the conference, contributions are also solicited in the topics listed below.
This year's best papers on interconnect microarchitecture will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a special edition of IEEE Micro.
Building on last year's successful technical program, keynotes, sessions, and panels on datacenter networking and their requirements, and solutions, in 2019 Hot Interconnects moves to Intel, Santa Clara, CA for the conference. This year's conference focuses on data-center, virtualized, and cloud networking. We hope you can join us there.
