2006 Workshop on

High Performance Switching and Routing

Poznań, Poland

June 7-9, 2006


The wide deployment of broadband access for end-user based on current DSL technologies and future subscriber optical access, and new broadband services like IPTV, IPHDTV, videoconferencing and high-speed data transmission imposes new requirements on IP networks. Transmission technologies based on DWDM systems allow to transmit information with speed of Tb/s on one fiber. High-capacity and high-speed routers become a inevitable in the network. On the other hand switching and routing devices are being introduced not only in Internet networks but also in Storage Area Networks and multiprocessor architectures and embedded systems.

The scope of the High Performance Switching and Routing (HPSR) Workshop is focused on the technology of high-speed switches and routers, including the architectural and algorithmic aspects of high-speed IP networks, possibly adopting optical technologies and wireless user accesses. HPSR 2006 will comprise of technical sessions for presentation of novel research results, panel sessions for discussion of hot topics, and tutorials by leading experts.

Submitted papers will undergo three independent reviews, and accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings. Original papers are invited on such topics as (but not limited):

  • High performance switch and router architectures
    • Analysis and simulation
    • Application routers
    • Electronic and optical switching fabrics
    • Field trials
    • Impact on higher layer protocols
    • Implementations
    • Innovative switch and router architectures
    • Measurements
    • Optical packet switches
    • Prototypes
    • Securing routers and switches
    • System development
  • MPLS and GMPLS
  • IP over optical networks
  • Routing protocols
  • WDM switching and routing
  • Quality of service
  • Performance measurement and evaluation
  • Network management and operations
  • Tariffing, accounting, and charging
  • Traffic engineering and control
  • High-speed packet processors
  • Metering and monitoring
  • Traffic measurement
  • Protection and recovery
  • Interconnects architectures
  • Switching and routing in wireless networks
  • Switches for Storage Area Networks
  • Networks for grid computing
  • Multiprocessor architectures and switching

Instructions for Authors:

High-quality original papers are solicited. Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed by Technical Program Committee members and other experts to ensure high quality and relevance to the conference. Authors of accepted papers must attend the conference to present their contributions. Paper length should be 4-6 pages in two-columns IEEE Transactions style, 10pt. Accepted papers that are longer than 6 pages will be charged with an over-length fee of $100 per page for the 7th and 8th pages. No paper may exceed a maximum of 2 over-length pages. PDF format only is accepted.

Authors are required to submit their papers through the EDAS web site http://edas.info/ in three steps:

  • Creation of a personal account on EDAS (if you are new to EDAS).
  • Registration of the paper (requiring a short abstract of up to 150 words).
  • Upload of the paper, in PDF format only.

Authors can always re-upload their manuscripts before the deadline. The new uploaded manuscript will overwrite the existing one.

Paper acceptance system will be open from 10th November 2005.
