We wish to welcome you to HPSR ‘09, the Workshop on High Performance Switching and Routing to be held in Telecom ParisTech (ENST) in Paris, France, June 22 - 24, 2009. This year marks the 15th anniversary of this event, and we are truly delighted that many long timer colleagues are joining us in various capacities to help celebrate this special occasion.
The High Speed Switching and Routing (HPSR) workshop has its roots in the ATM workshop first convened in 1995 in Washington-DC, USA. Subsequent workshops were held in 1996 in San Francisco-CA, USA; 1997 in Lisboa, Portugal; 1998 in Fairfax-VA, USA; 1999 in Kochi, Japan; 2000 in Heidelberg, Germany. The current name HPSR was adopted for subsequent workshops to reflect specifically the focus on the topics of switching and routing. HPER 2001 was held in Dallas-TX, USA; 2002 in Kobe, Japan; 2003 in Torino, Italy; 2004 in Phoenix-AZ, USA; 2005 in Hong-Kong; 2006 in Poznan, Poland; 2007 in New-York-NY, USA; 2008 in Shangai, China.
HPSR 2009 brings together researchers on the forefront topics of switching and routing with associated topics of architecture, performance evaluation, algorithms, traffic control, protection, multi-layer and multi-domain networking and security. We are witnessing important design aspects such as power usage, design efficiency, secure routing, and path optimization. Presentations of the latest research results provide a unique opportunity at this workshop for discussions and exchange of ideas to further the knowledge base in this field.
All accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE HPSR 2009 Workshop proceedings and will be made available in IEEE Explore Digital Library.
