RAAW 2007 : Second Annual Reconfigurable and Adaptive Architecture Workshop
Call For Papers
The tremendous advances in process technology provide architects and microarchitects with many interesting opportunities for making use of the huge transistor budget to enhance performance and increase throughput. However, the complexity of software applications and system software presents a challenging problem. The varying requirements of the different applications running on a single machine, as well as the changing behavior of a single application during its lifetime, make choosing a suitable general purpose architecture a big challenge. This raises the need for an architecture that can adapt to the different requirements of the applications. The power consumption limits and the growing importance of reliability further add to the appeal of such adaptive architectures.
The Reconfigurable and Adaptive Architecture Workshop provides a high-quality forum for computer scientists and engineers to present their latest research findings in the rapidly evolving field of reconfigurable and adaptive architectures.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* High performance adaptive and reconfigurable architectures
* Power-Aware and Thermal-Aware architectures
* Adaptive architectures for enhanced hardware reliability
* Compilation techniques for adaptive and reconfigurable architectures
* Dynamic compilation and runtime execution environments
* Heterogeneous multiprocessing on a chip
* Reconfigurable interconnection
* Hardware/software trade-offs
* Novel architectures and micro-architectures
* Reconfigurable embedded computing systems
* Memory management techniques
* Static and dynamic profiling techniques
* Program phase detection and exploitation techniques
* Hardware acceleration through reconfiguration
* Integration of FPGAs with microprocessors
The Program Committee invites authors to submit papers up to 5000 words in length, describing original, unpublished recent work related to the workshop theme. Submission must be in pdf format and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The submission should include the contact person's email address on the front page.
The selected papers will be considered for publication in a special theme issue of JILP.
At least one of the author(s) of an accepted paper is expected to register for the workshop and present the paper.
Paper Submission: September 18, 2007
