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
