The topic on High-performance networks and communications is devoted to communication issues in scalable compute and storage systems, such as tightly coupled parallel computers, clusters, and networks of workstations, including hierarchical and hybrid designs featuring several levels of possibly different interconnects. All aspects of communication in modern compute and storage systems are of interest, including advances in the design, implementation, and evaluation of interconnection networks, network interfaces, system and storage area networks, on-chip interconnects, communication protocols and interfaces, routing and communication algorithms, and communication aspects of parallel and distributed algorithms. Submitted papers should present significant, original work in theory or practice on aspects of performance, reliability and availability, power consumption and heat dissipation, cost, scalability, and management.
The scope of the topic includes, but is not limited to:
José Flich, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Spain
Filipe Araújo, University of Coimbra, Portugal
Cyriel Minkenberg, IBM Research - Zurich, Switzerland
Maurizio Palesi, Kore University, Italy
Tor Skeie, University of Oslo and Simula Research Laboratory, Norway
