<p>Microcomputers and their users rely on interconnects to communicate. At the Hot Interconnects 10 conference, which took place 21 to 23 August 2002 at Stanford University, designers and architects from universities and companies met to discuss new technologies for high-performance switches, routers, and packet processing engines. These technologies enable computers and users to seamlessly exchange data over the Internet. They also transport data between multi-processors, interconnect clusters of workstations, and implement the core switching in storage area networks. </p>
