There has always been a close connection between the emergence of new usage models and new computer architectures. Only a decade ago, a typical desktop PC user may have cared a great deal about speeding up an Excel calculation. Today, users may care more about the computer's ability to play media files downloaded from the Internet, as well as their experience in on-line virtual worlds. New, emerging workloads bring about new challenges for developing future computer architectures. At the same time, break-throughs in computer system design enables new application domains. Recent development trends suggest that the industry is moving to many core architectures to better manage trade-offs among performance, energy efficiency, and reliability in deep-submicron technology nodes. This industry-wide movement towards many-core architectures opens up many opportunities for developing new classes of applications. Such computationally intensive tasks as real-time ray-tracing, multi-modal data mining, physical simulation, financial analytics, or virtual world that were not possible just a few years ago due to a lack of adequate computing power are now being realized on emerging many-core platforms. In this full day workshop, our goal is to bring together application domain experts and computer architects to discuss emerging applications as well as their implications on current- and next-generation many-core architectures.

 
 
Topics of Interest
 
The workshop focuses on the following two areas:
  • Emerging application domains such as recognition/mining/synthesis (RMS), medical imaging, bioinformatics, visual computing, Web3D, datacenter workloads, business analytics, virtual worlds, etc. Example topics include discussions of application characteristics, programming models, parallelization techniques, and representative benchmarks.
  • Architectural implications of emerging applications. Examples include the impact of architectural changes on emerging applications and new architectural features to improve performance or power.

Call for Paper
 
We solicit papers in the following areas:
  • Emerging application domains such as recognition/mining/synthesis (RMS), social networks, medical imaging, bioinformatics, visual computing, datacenter workloads, business analytics, and virtual worlds. Example topics include discussions of application characteristics, programming models, parallelization techniques, and representative benchmarks.
  • Architectural implications of emerging applications. Examples include the impact of architectural changes on emerging applications and new architectural features to improve performance or power
  • Examples of hardware and software co-design that have resulted in successful architectures for the specific application areas.
Submission Format: Paper should be limited to 6 pages single-spaced. The IEEE formatting templates will be used for the final manuscripts; we highly encourage the authors to use the same for their review manuscripts.
