General Information:
The High-Speed Local Networks (HSLN) workshop, within the 28th IEEE
Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN), focuses on the design,
analysis, implementation, and exploitation of new concepts, techno-
logies, and applications related to high-performance networks on a
local scale.  This workshop will bring together networking researchers,
engineers, and practitioners from across the spectrum of high-speed
local networks, with participants from industry, academia, and
government.  Original papers that present research results, case
studies, technology development or deployment experience, work in
progress, etc. are solicited, as are survey articles.

Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to):
- High-speed LANs (e.g. Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet)
- System-area networks (e.g. SCI, Myrinet, ServerNet)
- Storage-area networks (e.g. Fibre Channel) and I/O interconnects
- High-speed networks in embedded systems (e.g. avionics, space systems)
- Protocols, services, and topologies for high-speed local networks
- Routing and switch architectures for high-speed local networks
- Quality of Service (QoS) in high-speed local networks
- Performance analysis of high-speed local networks and systems
- Modeling and simulation of high-speed local networks
- Middleware for high-speed local network communication
- Applications for high-speed local networks (e.g. video on demand)

Paper Submission Instructions:
Authors are invited to submit papers of up to ten camera-ready pages,
in PDF or Postscript format, for presentation at the workshop and
publication in the conference proceedings.  Papers should be
submitted by email to the workshop at hsln at on or before
May 23, 2003.
