IEEE International Conference on High Performance Switching and Routing

Artificial Intelligent Next Generation (NextG) Integrated Communications and Computing Systems

5-7 June 2023 @ Albuquerque, New Mexico


*IEEE HPSR 2023 Organizing Committee is planning for an in-person conference and encourages the authors to participate physically; however, we understand that the pandemic situation is not over yet. Therefore, depending on the situation during the conference time, remote participation and online presentation may be allowed under special circumstances.



Next Generation (NextG) Integrated Communications and Computing Systems are envisioned to be characterized by resiliency, security, robustness, adaptability, and autonomy, while being supported by modern communication devices, computing solutions, networks, and systems. New networking technologies and intelligent techniques are needed to efficiently and effectively cope with the intricacy in traffic demands, as well as the heterogeneity of the services and applications requested by the end-users. In parallel, the advent of the Digital Continuum, i.e., device-to-edge-to-fog-to-Cloud continuum, promises to offer low-latency and ubiquitous computation to heterogeneous mobile and Internet of Things devices. A rich array of network services is expected to emerge seeking to realize greater synergy across the various component subsystems of the NextG Integrated Communications and Computing Systems.


The main focus of the HPSR 2023 – the 24th edition of HPSR conference – will be to assess how breakthrough changes occurring to NextG Integrated Communications and Computing Systems are affecting areas related to switching and routing, and NextG networks and systems in general. We are soliciting original and thought-provoking works on big data, data analytics, cloud and edge services, and artificial intelligent techniques applied to networking and switching and routing. Works on autonomous networks, 5G/6G, Industry 4.0, social networks, network, cybersecurity, virtualization, and other advanced topics are also welcome. Papers describing original, previously unpublished research, experimental efforts, practical experiences, as well as visionary roadmaps, in all aspects of switching and routing, and NextG networks and systems are solicited. Research works on the following topics, but not limited to, are welcome for submission through the following symposia:
