5th Workshop on
Statistical and Machine learning approaches
to ARchitecture and compilaTion
(SMART 2011)

April 2, 2011, Chamonix, France

(co-located with CGO 2011 Conference)

The rapid rate of architectural change and the large diversity of architecture
features has made it increasingly difficult for compiler writers to keep pace
with microprocessor evolution. This problem has been compounded by the
introduction of multicores. Thus, compiler writers have an intractably complex
problem to solve. A similar situation arises in processor design where new
approaches are needed to help computer architects make the best use of new
underlying technologies and to design systems well adapted to future application

Recent studies have shown the great potential of statistical machine learning
and search strategies for compilation and machine design. The purpose of this
workshop is to help consolidate and advance the state of the art in this
emerging area of research. The workshop is a forum for the presentation of
recent developments in compiler techniques and machine design methodologies
based on space exploration and statistical machine learning approaches with the
objective of improving performance, parallelism, scalability, and adaptability.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Machine Learning, Statistical Approaches, or Search applied to

* Empirical Automatic Performance Tuning
* Iterative Feedback-Directed Compilation
* Self-tuning Programs, Libraries and Language Extensions
* Dynamic Optimization/Split Compilation/Adaptive Execution
* Speculative and Adaptive Parallelization
* Low-power Optimizations
* Adaptive Virtualization
* Performance Modeling and Portability
* Adaptive Processor and System Architecture
* Architecture Simulation and Design Space Exploration
* Collective Optimization
* Self-tuning Computing Systems
* Other Topics relevant to Intelligent and Adaptive Compilers/Architectures/OS

**** Important Dates ****

* FINAL Deadline for paper submission: February 17, 2011
* Decision notification: March 7, 2011
* Deadline for camera-ready papers: March 25, 2011
* Workshop: April 2, 2011 (morning, half-day)

**** Paper Submission Guidelines ****

Submitted papers should be original and not published or submitted for
publication elsewhere. Papers should use the LNCS format and should be 15
pages maximum. Manuscript preparation guidelines can be found at the LNCS
website (, go to "For Authors" and then
"Information for LNCS Authors"). Papers must be submitted in the PDF using
the workshop submission website:

In addition to normal technical papers, please consider submitting "position
paper" (2 to 15 pages). For example, a position paper could include your
thoughts on compiler evolution, future infrastructure technology needs, use of
adaptive techniques for the Cloud, etc.

An informal collection of the papers to be presented will be distributed at the
workshop. All accepted papers will appear on the workshop website.
