IEEE HPSR 2022 Call For Papers 

As driven by users’ expectations on better information services and pushed by the innovating technologies spanning from optical networks to beyond 5G (6G) , the Next Generation Networks (NGN) and future communication system design will integrate space, air, and ground network segments to form a large-scale, autonomous and yet complicated space-air-ground integrated network that provides ubiquitous and seamless wireless connectivity for Internet of Everything. New networking technologies are needed to efficiently and effectively cope with the ever-increasing complexity of network operation and management for network providers, so as to achieve fully-automated, highly-autonomous and advanced-intelligent networks.

The main focus of the HPSR 2022 – the 23nd edition of HPSR conference – will be to assess how breakthrough changes occurring to networks and telecom are affecting areas related to switching, routing, computing and communication networks in general. We are soliciting original and thought-provoking works on big data, data analytics, cloud/edge services, and machine-learning techniques applied to networking, computing, switching and routing. Works on autonomous networks, 5G and beyond, IoT, Industry 4.0, social networks, satellite and space networks, cybersecurity, virtualization, and other advanced topics are also welcome.
