CALL FOR PAPERS

IISWC-call-for-papers-pdf

The 2018 IEEE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON
WORKLOAD CHARACTERIZATION will be held in Raleigh, North Carolina
between September 30th and October 2nd, 2018. We solicit papers in all
areas related to understanding characterization of computing system workloads. Topics
of interest include (but are not limited to)-


–Characterization
of applications in domains including memory, storage and file systems,
cyber physical systems, pervasive computation and Internet of Things
(IoTs), search engines, e-commerce, web services, databases,
file/application servers, embedded, mobile, multimedia, real time,
3D-graphics, gaming, Blockchain, life sciences, bioinformatics,
scientific computing, finance, forecasting, machine learning, analytics,
data mining, security, reliability, biometrics, cloud and edge
computing, user behavior and system user interaction.


–Emerging
workloads and architectures such as Transactional memory workloads,
workloads for multi/many core systems, Stream based computing workloads,
web/internet workloads, cyber-physical workloads, Near data processing
architectures, Quantum computations and communication, Near-threshold
computation and Non-volatile memory.

–Implications of workloads
in design issues such as Power management, reliability, security,
performance, Processors, memory hierarchy, I/O, and networks, Design of
accelerators, FPGAs, GPUs, CGRAs, etc and Novel architectures (non Von
Neumann).

–Benchmark
creation and evaluation, including Multithreaded benchmarks, benchmark
cloning, Profiling, trace collection, synthetic traces, Validation of
benchmarks.

–Characterization of OS, Virtual Machine,
middleware and library behavior including Virtual machines, .NET, Java
VM, databases, Graphics libraries, scientific libraries, Operating
system and hypervisor effects and overheads.

–Measurement
tools and techniques, including Instrumentation methodologies for
workload verification and characterization, Techniques for accurate
analysis/measurement of production systems, Analytical and abstract
modeling of program behavior and systems.
