*******************************************************************************
CALL FOR PAPERS

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

http://cTuning.org/workshop-smart2011

April 2nd or 3rd, 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
domains.

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 ****

* Deadline for paper submission: February 7, 2011
* Decision notification: March 7, 2011
* Deadline for camera-ready papers: March 25, 2011
* Workshop: April 2 or 3, 2011 (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 (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs, go to "For Authors"
and then
"Information for LNCS Authors"). Papers must be submitted in the PDF
using
the workshop submission website:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=smart2011

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.
