The Fourth international Workshop on
Automatic Performance Tuning
iWAPT 2009
October 1-2, 2009
Koshiba Hall, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan

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

The Fourth international Workshop on Automatic Performance Tuning (iWAPT2009)
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.

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.)
- Low-power computing
- Empirical Compilation
- Automatically-tuned Code Generation
- Frameworks and theories of automatic tuning and software optimization
- Autonomic computing and context-aware computing
