IEEE International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing
11-14 May 2020 // Virtual Conference


COVID-19 Update:  IEEE HPSR 2020 goes online.

Presentations are live or pre-recorded online, all Q&A are live online.
As you may be aware, the World Health Organization officially declared the novel coronavirus COVID-19 a pandemic. This global health crisis is a unique challenge that has impacted many members of the IEEE family. We would like to express our concern and support for all the members of the IEEE community, our professional team, our families, and all others affected by this outbreak.
Governments around the world are now issuing restrictions on travel, gatherings, and meetings in an effort to limit and slow the spread of the virus. The health and safety of the IEEE community is our first priority and IEEE is supporting these efforts.
Following the advice and guidelines from healthcare officials and local authorities, IEEE HPSR 2020 will now be held virtually on 11-14 May 2020.
Accepted papers for IEEE HPSR 2020 will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital Library after they are presented at the virtual conference. Information and instructions on how to prepare for a virtual presentation will be sent separately.
Registration fees for IEEE HPSR 2020 will be adjusted. Authors and non-authors who have registered at the original fees will be refunded the price difference.
We extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all of our technical community for your understanding and community engagement. Although IEEE HPSR 2020 cannot be held physically, the integrity and quality of the research and content will remain and now be experienced in the virtual environment. Thank you for your support of our shared mission to advance technology for humanity.

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. We will continue to monitor official travel advisories related to the novel Corona Virus and update the event website to keep you informed. 

Please keep checking the IEEE HPSR website for updates.

The 2020 IEEE 21st International Conference on High-Performance Switching and Routing (HPSR 2020) will be held at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, USA, from May 11 to 14. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society.

IEEE HPSR will address numerous challenges of today’s data networks, which are being subject to significant changes driven by cloud computing, the Internet of things, data science and analysis in communication networks, and other new concepts. As a result, new technologies are needed to efficiently and effectively cope with the resulting traffic demands. It is important that researchers gather to share their ideas and progress in solving these future challenges that the Internet as a whole is facing. Most notably, these challenges include narrowing the digital-divide between industrialized and developing countries, offering to the latter all the advantages that come with access to high-speed Internet and the services it provides; handling the bandwidth and delay requirements of multimedia services, P2P, and cloud computing applications; deploying IPv6 and providing smooth migration from IPv4; deploying large datacenters and enhancing their switching capabilities; and achieving high energy efficiency in switching and routing equipment. These are only some of the factors that are driving the demand for switching and routing capabilities that are more intelligent, efficient, and reliable than ever before.
