IWIA Steering Committee
This workshop aims to bring together researchers and designers from academia and industry to discuss directions in the development of high-performance, parallel, and distributed processors and systems. The main goal of the workshop is to discuss future trends in the development of architecture and software systems and to explore the assumptions made by the architects about software systems and by software writers about architecture. The increased complexity in each of these areas calls for increased interaction with researchers from all of the other disciplines to accurately assess the potential directions and future trends in architecture and systems.
The main themes of the workshop are software- and technology-driven and constrained new architectures, compiler/architecture interaction and co-design, and application requirements and characteristics. Both numerical and non-numerical applications, such as database, data mining, Web- and Java-based, and (high-performance) embedded applications, are of interest. In all cases a longer-term view and assessment of the future is of most interest.
This year's special focus is on multi- and many-core processors. All aspects of the design, architecture, power management, reliability, and programming of such processors are the 2010 special topics.
Other topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
The workshop will consist of sessions combining individual presentations with discussion. Presentations will be limited to ~20 min to provide sufficient time for discussion. An ideal presentation will concentrate on trends and future directions in addition to recently obtained results. Speculation is encouraged.
Submission and Publication
The submission of an extended abstract, up to 3 pages, is due by 2/21/10. Submissions should be electronic in pdf format. The abstracts will be reviewed and printed in the on-site proceedigns.
The final proceedings consisting of full papers will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS, http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/home) after the meeting. The full papers will undergo additional review and be selected for publication in the post-proceedings. The full papers will be due by August 1st, 2010. Publication instructions will be distributed by Conference Publishing Services (CPS) at a later date.
