HiPNet 2022: 4th High-Precision, Predictable, and Low-Latency Networking Workshop


4th International Workshop on High-Precision, Predictable,
and Low-Latency Networking (HiPNet 2022)

at CNSM 2022, Thessaloniki, Greece // 31 October - 4 November 2022



For the past 50 years, traffic delivery across the Internet is based on the
“Best Effort” paradigm, whose characteristics only improved through faster
underlying physical networks and lower average load; but the ongoing need to
reduce congestion based latency, which often is called buffer-bloat. In
controlled networks, the 25 year old architectures for Differentiated and
Integrated Services are still the only widely adopted or attempted solution,
but today, new waves of networked applications continue to push the limits of
these technologies. Augmented Reality and Tactile Internet require ultra-low
latency measured in single-digit milliseconds. Requirements of Industrial
Internet applications that involve real-time industrial control are even more
stringent and tolerate no jitter at all. Even consumer entertainment such as
cloud gaming requires ever lower latencies with higher throughputs and mastered
jitter. Indeed, economic pressures mandate increasing cloudification of
real-time applications with precision service level needs. Compounding this
situation is the fact that many of those applications are mission-critical and
cannot afford any loss in connectivity or even single packets. Collectively,
these applications require high-precision also called predictable networks that
are characterized by very stringent service level boundaries and associated
guarantees that border on determinism.

Various approaches are emerging that will allow to tackle those challenges.
Data centers with fixed topologies and a constant number of hops rapidly
replace conventional routing and more general Internet topologies. Networks are
becoming more programmable to custom-tailor and optimize the treatment of
packets and flows. Related technologies range from Service Function Chaining to
Network Slicing to SDN. While 5G is making URLLC at the network edge a reality,
momentum for mobile networks beyond 5G are beginning to push the boundaries of
precision services beyond the edge and across the network core. Simultaneously,
the last decade has seen significant improvements in the industry’s ability to
build flexible packet forwarding planes at high speed with programmable packet
treatments, allowing to overcome many prior technology constraints that made
better technologies prohibitive in the past. Intelligent control interfaces and
ultra-low latency control loops can optimize service levels, and
high-precision measurements and telemetry with nanosecond accuracy at scale can
act as enablers for those more intelligent control-loops and better management

The workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers, students and
professionals from industry and academia to discuss challenges and present
work-in-progress and solution approaches in support of delivering, managing,
controlling, monitoring or measuring network traffic with high-precision in
networks ranging in speeds and scale from Low-Power and Lossy Networks (LLNs)
all the way to multi-Tbps Wide-Area Internet core networks, including
Data-Center and 5G/6G mobile networks with (Ultra) Reliable and Low-Latency
Communication (URLLC), predictable, available, or deterministic services. The
workshop welcomes papers related to disruptive concepts, innovative solutions,
testbeds, experiments, etc.

Topics of Interest to the workshop include but are not limited to the following:

• Platforms to manage and operate high-precision networks and services,
e.g. Industrial Networks, Tactile Networks, Augmented Reality (AR),
metaverse, cloud gaming
• Proof and validation of high-precision service level guarantees
