Call For Papers

2009 Annual IEEE International Symposium on Workload Characterization

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the Technical Committee on
Computer Architecture

Austin, TX
October 4-6, 2009

Important Dates
Abstracts Due : April 17, 2009
Paper Submission : April 24, 2009
Acceptance Notification : June 27, 2009

This symposium is dedicated to the understanding and characterization
of workloads that run on all types of computing systems. New
applications and programming paradigms continue to emerge as the
diversity and performance of computers increase. On the one hand,
computing workloads evolve and change with advances in
microarchitecture, compilers, programming languages, and
networking/communication technologies. On the other hand, improvements
in computing technology are usually based on a solid understanding and
analysis of existing workloads. Whether they are PDAs, wireless and
embedded systems at the low end or massively parallel systems at the
high end, the design of future computing machines can be significantly
improved if we understand the characteristics of the workloads that
are expected to run on them.

We solicit papers in all areas related to characterization of
computing system workloads. Topics of interest include (but are not
limited to):

* Characterization of applications in areas including
- Search engines, e-commerce, web services, databases,
file/application servers
- Embedded, mobile, multimedia, real-time, 3D-Graphics, gaming,
- Life sciences, bioinformatics, scientific computing
- Security, reliability, biometrics
* Characterization of OS, Virtual Machine, middleware and library behavior
- Virtual machines, Websphere, .NET, Java VM, databases
- Graphics libraries, scientific libraries
* Characterization of system behavior, including
- Operating system and hypervisor effects and overheads
- Effects due to virtualization and dynamic optimization
- Hardware accelerators (GPGPU, XML, crypto, etc)
- Failures, availability, and reliability
- User behavior and system-user interaction
- Instrumentation methodologies for workload verification and
- Techniques for accurate analysis/measurement of production systems
* Implications of workloads in design issues, such as
- Power management, reliability, security, performance
- Processors, memory hierarchy, I/O, and networks
* Benchmark creation, analysis, and evaluation issues, including
- Multithreaded benchmarks
- Profiling, trace collection, synthetic traces
- Validation of benchmarks
* Abstract modeling of program behavior
* Emerging and future workloads
- Transactional memory workloads; workloads for multi/many-core systems
- Stream-based computing workloads; web2.0/internet workloads
