HPSR 2019 will be the 20th edition of High Performance Switching and Routing, an important milestone in the history of one of the most traditional events of IEEE, and of IEEE Communication Society in particular. We did our best to locate HPSR 2019 conveniently in time and space. The conference will start right after the end of ICC 2019, that will be held in Shanghai: so, if you live far from China, you will have the opportunity to attend both the conferences in a single overseas travel. Moreover, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of HPSR, we have chosen an outstanding and regal location.
Xi’an is the capital of Shaanxi Province, People’s Republic of China. One of the oldest cities in China, Xi’an is the oldest of the Four Great Ancient Capitals, having held the position under several of the most important dynasties in Chinese history. Xi’An is very rich of historic spots that can be visited while attending HPSR 2019. In addition to traditional Chinese historic sites, such as the Bell Tower and Drum Tower, The Giant Wild Goose Pagoda and Small Wild Goose Pagoda, outstanding historic sites are located in Xi’An: the Mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of unified China, and his Terracotta Army, candidate for the eighth wonder of the world.
