IISWC 2013
2013 Annual IEEE International Symposium on Workload Characterization
Portland, Oregon, September 22-24, 2013


This symposium is dedicated to the understanding and characterization of
Workloads that run on all types of computing systems. New applications and
programming paradigms continue to emerge rapidly as the diversity and
performance of computers increase. On one hand, improvements in computing
technology are usually based on a solid understanding and analysis of
existing workloads. On the other hand, computing workloads evolve and
change with advances in microarchitecture, compilers, programming languages,
and networking/communication technologies. Whether they are smart phones
and deeply embedded systems at the low end or massively parallel systems
at the high end, the design of future computing machines can be significantly
improved if we understand the characteristics of the workloads that are
expected to run on them. This symposium will focus on characterizing and
understanding emerging applications in consumer, commercial and scientific
