Hot Interconnects is the premier international forum for researchers
and developers of state-of-the-art hardware and software architectures
and implementations for interconnection networks of all scales, ranging
from on-chip processor-memory interconnects to wide-area networks. This
yearly conference is very well attended by leaders in industry and
academia. The atmosphere provides for a wealth of opportunities to
interact with individuals at the forefront of this field.

Themes include cross-cutting issues spanning computer systems, networking
technologies, and communication protocols.  This conference is directed
particularly at new and exciting technology and product innovations in
these areas. Contributions should focus on real experimental systems,
prototypes, or leading-edge products and their performance evaluation.
In addition to those subscribing to the main theme of the conference,
contributions are also solicited in the topics listed below.

     * Novel and innovative interconnect architectures
     * Multi-core processor interconnects
     * System-on-Chip Interconnects
     * Advanced chip-to-chip communication technologies
     * Optical interconnects
     * Protocol and interfaces for interprocessor communication
     * Survivability and fault-tolerance of interconnects
     * High-speed packet processing engines and network processors
     * System and storage area network architectures and protocols
     * High-performance host-network interface architectures
     * High-bandwidth and low-latency I/O
     * Tb/s switching and routing technologies
     * Innovative architectures for supporting collective communication
     * Novel communication architectures to support grid computing
