Call For Papers

The goal of FastPath is to bring together researchers and practitioners involved in cross-stack hardware/software performance analysis, modeling, and evaluation of workload optimized systems.

With microprocessor clock speeds being held constant, optimizing systems around specific workloads is an increasingly attractive means to improve performance. The importance of workload optimized systems is seen in their ubiquitous deployment in diverse systems from cellphones to tablets to routers to game machines to Top500 supercomputers, and IT appliances such as IBM's DataPower and Netezza, and Oracle's Exadata.

More precisely, workload optimized systems have hardware and/or software specifically designed to run well for a particular application or application class. The types and components of workload optimized systems vary, but a partial list includes traditional CPUs assisted with accelerators (ASICs, FPGAs, GPUs), memory accelerators, I/O accelerators, hybrid systems, and IT appliances.

Exploiting CPU savings and speed-ups offered by workload optimized systems for application level performance improvement poses several cross stack hardware and software challenges. These include developing alternate programming models to exploit massive parallelism offered by accelerators, designing low-latency, high-throughput H/W-S/W interfaces, and developing techniques to efficiently map processing logic on hardware.

Topics
FastPath seeks to facilitate the exchange of ideas on performance analysis and evaluation of workload optimized systems and seeks papers on a wide range of topics including, but not limited to:


Workloads
Simulators
Industrial Experiences
