The IISWC 2018 will be held in Raleigh, NC between September 30th and October 2nd. The early registration deadline is the 12th of September. This symposium is dedicated to the
understanding and characterization of workloads that run on all types of
computing systems. New applications and programming paradigms continue
to emerge rapidly as the diversity and performance of computers
increase. On one hand, improvements in computing technology are usually
based on a solid understanding and analysis of existing workloads. On
the other hand, computing workloads evolve and change with advances in
microarchitecture, compilers, programming languages, and networking
communication technologies. Whether they are smart phones and deeply
embedded systems at the low end or massively parallel systems at the
high end, the design of future computing machines can be significantly
improved if we understand the characteristics of the workloads that are
expected to run on them.
This symposium, sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
and the Technical Committee on Computer Architecture,
will focus on characterizing and understanding emerging applications in consumer, commercial and scientific computing.
