Although the Conference starts on Monday 4 July, Sunday 3 July will be dedicated to tutorials. There will be two tutorials (free for registered attendants) with a duration of 3.5 hours each one of them, spending all the day.

We wish to welcome you to IEEE HPSR 2011, the 12th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing to be held in Cartagena, Spain, July 4 - 7, 2011. This conference 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. HPSR workshop 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; 2009 in Paris, France and 2010 in Dallas-TX, USA.

The goal of IEEE HPSR is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners from around the world. IEEE HPSR is focused on the technology of high-speed, high-capacity switches and routers, including architectural and algorithmic aspects of high-speed IP networks, possibly adopting optical technologies and wireless user access. Over the last editions, IEEE HPSR has evolved into an important forum of telecommunications and networking for the exchange of state-of-the-art.

Sessions will include tutorials, panel sessions and presentations on new research results. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas described in the call for papers will be considered. Accepted papers will be published in Proceedings of IEEE HPSR 2011 and in the IEEE digital library. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance, and originality. Best Paper Award will be granted. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the Special Issue Challenges in High-Performance Switching and Routing in the Future Internet of the Computer Networks journal published by Elsevier.
