Washington D.C., USA, Feb 2019


***The industry session submission deadline is the same as
the regular session***

The International Symposium on High Performance Computer
Architecture includes an industry session on the architecture of future systems
technologies. The objective of this session is to provide a unique forum for
industry participants to present their perspective on technical challenges
facing future systems and discuss potential solutions. The discussion in this
forum is expected to educate the wider computer architecture community on the
challenges facing the industry and to encourage them to investigate solutions.
The session will include a small number of papers selected based on depth and relevance
to the HPCA audience.


Architects, designers and developers involved in some aspect
of industrial computer systems design and development are invited to submit a
paper describing new challenges, issues, and opportunities in the next generation
computer systems. The paper needs to provide insights, results, etc. that are
unique to industry, which makes it clearly distinguishable from a regular
paper*. Authors should submit an abstract by July 27, 2018 11:59 PM EDT. They
should submit the full version of the paper by August 3, 2018, 11:59 PM EDT. No
extensions will be granted. The full version should be a PDF file following the
submission guidelines that will be made available at the submission website.
Papers should be submitted for double-blind review. See the HPCA 2019 website:
http://hpca2019.seas.gwu.edu/ for additional information about HPCA 2019 and
submission details.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


• Processor, cache and memory architectures

• Parallel/multi-core architectures

• GPUs

• Domain-specific accelerators

• Power-efficient architectures

• Dependable/secure architectures

• Analysis and exploitation of security vulnerabilities

• High-performance I/O systems

• Embedded, IoT, reconfigurable, and heterogeneous architectures

• Interconnect and network interface architectures

• Architectures for cloud, HPC, and data centers

• Innovative hardware/software trade-offs

• Impact of compilers and system software on architecture

• Performance/power modeling and evaluation

• Architectures for emerging technology and applications
