Call for Tutorials

Hot Interconnects 2010 continues it's tradition to offer world-class tutorials held by internationally renowned experts in the area of high-performance interconnect networks. Download a copy of the Call For Tutorials.


Attendees will come from mixed backgrounds and interest in interconnection networks. Tutorials are intended to cover all areas of interest for Hot Interconnects as listed on the Call for Papers. However, we encourage tutorials of broad applicability rather than those focusing solely on a research in a limited domain or by a particular group.


Hot Interconnects will solely provide internet access and rooms with standard presentation equipment. Hands-on tutorials must be prepared to rely on laptops brought by the participants.

Review Process

Tutorial submissions will be reviewed by the Hot Interconnects 2010 tutorials committee. The committee will consider, among other facts, appropriateness and utility for Hot Interconnects tutorial audience, timeliness and general interest, clarity, completeness, cohesiveness of the proposal and presentation history and teaching/speaking experience of the presenters.


All materials must be submitted to the tutorials chair by August 6th and will be released to the attendees. Submitters must explicitly agree to release the materials for this purpose.
