Modern systems feature a wide variety of new processing accelerator-rich architectures, with computations performed in-memory, in-network, in Smart I/O devices, and numerous accelerators. To achieve high performance, efficiency and cost-effectiveness on these platforms, application developers will need exploit low-level hardware features to a much greater extent than before, challenging the traditional software paradigms. At the same time, these traits are transcending single host systems as emerging integrated fabric technologies enable disaggregated rack-scale system designs in data centers, with hundreds of GB/s, sub-microsecond interconnects blurring traditional machine boundaries.
The workshop (the successor of SFMA workshop series) brings together researchers in operating systems, language runtime, virtual machine and architecture communities to present and discuss their system building experiences with the emerging hardware architectures.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Operating System and programming environments for future hardware,
- Systems and applications on programmable switches
- Hybrid scale-up/scale-out system designs
- Energy efficiency, fault tolerance and resource management on future multi-core architectures,
- Architectural support for systems-level software, and
- Case studies of system-level software design for current or future multi-core hardware.
The papers will be distributed to workshop participants via the website, but will not be published via ACM Digital Library with the aim to encourage the submission of early-stage work soliciting feedback from the community. This policy allows later submission to more formal venues, e.g., EuroSys, OSDI, or ISCA.
We plan to have 4-8 presentations of accepted papers, and 3 keynote speakers with world-established expertise in the field of interest for the workshop. The workshop will conclude with a panel discussion.
Authors are invited to submit original work that exposes a new problem, advocates a specific solution, or reports on actual experience. In addition, this year we are also considering already published papers for those who wishes to expose their work to a new audience. The submissions are of three types: short papers (5 pages) or position papers (1-2 pages - can be extended after acceptance) , and extended abstract (1 page) for already published papers. The page count does not include references. Papers should be submitted using the standard two-column ACM SIG proceedings or SIG alternate template.
Paper submission is single-blind.
