IEEE HPSR 2015, Call for Papers

IEEE HPSR 2015 - 16th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing will be held between July 1-July 4, 2015 in Budapest, Hungary.


The dynamicity of modern communication networks relays on the switching and routing infrastructure. The Cloud, the Internet of Things, the Big Data, the mobile data communications, the 4k video,etc. all demand an even more dynamic network provided by high performance switching and routing infrastructure.

The next annual IEEE HPSR conference will be highlighted by the presentations of leading communications experts addressing the latest worldwide advancements in topics of software defined networks (SDN),network function virtualization (NFV) and clouds; the convergence of fixed and mobile access with excessive offloading from mobile to Wi-Fi networks; handling the various traffic, quality, fairness and availability requirements; deploying large data centers and enhancing their switching capabilities; provisioning content delivery networks; achieving energy efficiency of switching and routing equipment. These are only a few of the topics that have demanded switching and routing capabilities that are more intelligent, more efficient, and more reliable than ever before.

HPSR 2015 will be held in Budapest, Hungary. Past HPSR events were held in Heidelberg (2000), Dallas (2001), Kobe (2002), Torino (2003), Arizona (2004), Hong Kong (2005), Poznan (2006), New York (2007), Shanghai (2008), Paris (2009), Dallas (2010), Cartagena (2011), Belgrade (2012), Taipei (2013), and Vancuver (2014).

HPSR 2015 will include a special Demo Session (,
Tutorials (, a Panel, Invited Papers, and Regular Papers.

IEEE HPSR 2015 will address the entire range of switching and routing technologies including the following topics:

  • Architectures of high-performance switches and routers

  • Internet of Things
  • Big data driven networks
  • P2P routing
  • Routing in wireless, mobile and sensor networks
  • Optical switching and routing (including spectrum elastic networks)
  • Switching, bridging, and routing in data centers and clouds
  • Software defined networking/network function virualization (SDN/NFV)
  • Open-source routing, Open Network Control Architecture
  • Data placement and migration
  • Multiprocessor networks
  • Network control and management
  • Pricing, accounting, and charging
  • QoS/QoE and scalability of switching, bridging, and routing
  • Traffic characterization and engineering
  • Power-aware switching, bridging, and routing protocols
  • Interface selection and traffic routing in 5G FMC offloading
  • Routing and switching for 5G core networks
  • Protection switching and routing, restoration, availability

Submitted papers must be unpublished and should not be submitted elsewhere at the same time. Accepted full papers should not exceed 6 pages in two-column IEEE Transactions style. Accepted full papers longer than 6 pages will be charged $100 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 independent reviews.

Note: To be published in the IEEE HPSR 2015 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 2 papers.
