Call For Papers

Phenomenal growth in Internet traffic has moved the Internet from a convenience to a mission-critical platform. In addition, the advent of broadband access for end-users has raised expectations for IP performance and reliability. As a result, there is a great demand for high-performance electronic/optical routers and switches. 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 2005 will include technical sessions for the presentation of novel research results, panel sessions for the discussion of hot topics, and tutorials presented by leading international experts. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- High performance switch and router architectures
    - Analysis and simulation
    - Electronic and optical switching fabrics
    - Field trials
    - Impact of higher layer protocols and services
    - Implementations
    - Measurements
    - Prototypes
    - System development
- Routing Protocols
- IP over Optical Networks
- Performance Evaluation and Measurement
- Metering and Monitoring
- Sensor Networks
- High Speed Packet Processors
- Quality of Service
- Traffic Measurement
- Mobile and Ad-hoc Networking
- Wireless Networks
- Network Management and Operations
- WDM Switching and Routing
- Traffic, accounting, and charging
- P2P Networks
- Protection and Recovery
- MPLS and GMPLS
- Traffic Engineering and Control
