FHPM-2010 is held in conjunction with MICRO-43 Dec 4 in Atlanta, GA.

The goal of this workshop is to improve the design of hardware performance monitoring (HPM) in microprocessors, strengthen software support for accessing the hardware, and promote novel uses of HPM.  This one-day workshop invites participation from hardware designers and architects from various vendors and experts in performance analysis to discuss upcoming challenges in HPM and influence microprocessor design.  A summary of the discussion, to be provided by the organizers after the workshop, is intended to be used as a reference for both the designers of future processors as well as operating systems.
