EXADAPT: ACM SIGPLAN 1st International Workshop on
Adaptive Self-tuning Computing Systems
for Exaflop Era

June 5th, 2011, San Jose, California
(co-located with PLDI 2011 / FCRC 2011)

Keynote speaker: TBA

Modern large scale computing systems are rapidly evolving and may soon
feature millions of cores with exaflop performance. However, this leads to
a tremendous complexity with an unprecedented number of available design
and optimization choices for architectures, applications, compilers and
run-time systems. Using outdated,non-adaptive technology results in an
enormous waste of expensive computing resources and energy, while slowing
down time to market.

The 1st International Workshop on Self-tuning, Large Scale Computing
Systems for Exaflop Era is intended to become a regular inter-disciplinary
forum for researchers, practitioners, developers and application writers to
discuss ideas, experience, methodology, applications, practical techniques
and tools to improve or change current and future computing systems using
self-tuning technology. Such systems should be able to automatically adjust
their behavior to multi-objective usage scenarios at all levels (hardware
and software) based on empirical, dynamic, iterative, statistical,
collective, bio-inspired, machine learning and other techniques while fully
utilizing available resources.

All papers will be peer-reviewed including short position papers
and should include unpublished ideas on how to simplify, automate and standardize
the design, programming, optimization and adaptation of large-scale computing systems
for multiple objectives to improve performance, power consumption, utilization,
reliability and scalability including the following topics:

* whole system parameterization and modularization to enable self-tuning across
the whole hardware and software stack
** transformation space of static, JIT and source-to-source compilers
** run-time resource management/scheduling
** task/process/thread/data migration
** design space of architectures including heterogeneous multi-cores, accelerators,
memory hierarchy and IO
* propagation and usage of the feedback between various system layers
* static and dynamic code and data partitioning/modification for self-tuning
* application conversion to support multi-level, hybrid parallelization
* modification of existing tools and applications to enable auto-tuning
* resource and contention aware scheduling
* performance, power and reliability evaluation methodologies
* scalable performance evaluation tools
* detection, classification, and mitigation of resource contentions
* collaborative optimization repositories and benchmarks
* characterization of static program constructs
* characterization of dynamic program behavior under various system load scenarios
* software/hardware co-design and co-optimization
* analysis of interactions between different parts of a large application
* prediction of optimizations and architectural designs based on prior knowledge
* scalable system and processor simulation
* hardware support for self-tuning and scheduling
* virtualization
* fault-tolerance

**** Paper Submission Guidelines ****

We invite papers in two categories:

* Full papers should be at most 12 pages long including bibliography and
appendices. Papers in this category are expected to have relatively mature
content. Full paper presentations will be 25 minutes each.

* Position papers should be at most 6 pages long including bibliography and
appendices. Preliminary and exploratory work are welcome in this category,
including wild & crazy ideas. Position paper presentations will be 10 minutes
each. Authors submitting papers in this category must prepend the phrase
Position Paper: to the title of the submitted paper.

Submissions should be PDF documents typeset in the ACM proceedings format using
10pt fonts. SIGPLAN-approved templates can be found at
Both full and position papers must describe work not published in other refereed
venues, see the SIGPLAN republication policy for more details:
The proceedings of this workshop will be published in the ACM Digital Library
(ISBN 978-1-4503-0708-6).
