Call For Papers

Conference Overview
Recent advances in computer architecture and computing systems (such as, multicore processors and hybrid systems with accelerators) have made it very challenging for programmers to reach the performance potential of current systems. In addition, recent advances in numerical algorithms and software optimizations have tremendously increased the number of alternatives for solving a problem, which further complicates the software tuning process.

These issues have led researchers to the idea of software systems that can automate the performance tuning process by running a large set of empirical evaluations to configure applications and libraries on the targeted computing platform.

The Sixth international Workshop on Automatic Performance Tuning (iWAPT2011) is an International workshop that provides opportunities for researchers and practitioners in all fields related to automatic performance tuning to exchange ideas and experiences on algorithms, libraries, and applications tuned for recent computing platforms. This workshop will consist of a few invited speaker presentations from leading researchers in academia or industry, and several presentations of peer-reviewed papers that report the latest results in auto-tuning research.

Topics of Interest
To be announced.
Papers are solicited in following areas of automatic performance tuning including, but not limited to:

-Performance modeling
-Adaptive algorithms
-Numerical algorithms and libraries
-Scientific applications
-Parallel and distributed computing
-Computing with GPGPU and accelerators
-Database management system
-Numerical precision and stability
-Resource restrictions (real-time, memory etc.)
-Empirical Compilation
-Automatically-tuned Code Generation
-Frameworks and theories of automatic tuning and software optimization
-Autonomic computing and context-aware computing
-Low-power computing and green computing
-Position papers
In addition to normal technical papers, please consider submitting "position paper" on any of the topics. For example, a position paper could include your thoughts on future auto-tuning features you consider important, drawbacks of current application tuning techniques or tools, or constructive suggestions how to improve state-of-the-art application tuning methods. The maximum length of position paper is same as technical paper.

Paper Submission Guidelines
Technical or position-style paper length - maximum 10 pages

The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of Procedia Computer Science.

Please use this file for a Latex template plus instructions and for an MS word template file.

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. PostScript and source versions of your paper must be submitted electronically through the paper submission system.

Please, note that papers must not exceed ten pages in length (Regular paper), when typeset using the Procedia format.

Submission must be made through the web form. See:
