CALL FOR PAPERS

Memory continues to be a major bottleneck in almost all computing systems. It
is becoming more so as more cores and agents are sharing parts of the memory
system and as applications that run on the cores are becoming increasingly
data intensive. Continuing the tradition of eight previous successful
incarnations, MSPC 2014 will provide a forum for publishing and discussing all
aspects of memory performance and correctness on a variety of systems
(multi-core, desktop, embedded, server/cloud, high-performance computing,
sensor, etc) and related software and hardware innovations at various levels
of the technology stack. We invite new submissions that tackle issues in
memory system performance, efficiency, correctness, and dependability in both
hardware and software layers. Example areas of interest include but are not
limited to the following:

* Hardware, software, and hybrid techniques for better memory performance,
correctness, reliability, efficiency
* Memory hierarchy design for chip multiprocessors (CMPs)
* Emerging memory technologies (e.g., Phase Change Memory, MRAM)
* Characterization and analysis of memory systems performance
* Insightful experimental evaluation and analysis of memory-intensive
workloads
* Static and dynamic techniques for understanding and improving memory
performance and efficiency
* Managed memory and garbage collection optimizations
* Hardware and software techniques for ensuring memory safety and detecting
memory-related bugs
* Hardware and software memory models and their impact on programmability and
performance
* Memory system issues in accelerator-based computing (e.g., GPGPU)
* Memory system issues in embedded computers and tiny devices
* Prefetching, compression, latency tolerance techniques for memory
* Memory power and energy management techniques
* Memory reliability management techniques
* Software, hardware, and hybrid approaches are encouraged.

In addition, we solicit papers from practitioners describing problems and
experiences with memory performance and correctness in specific application
domains.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

We encourage the submission of not-fully-polished but provocative short papers
(6-8 pages; 8 pages maximum) or position abstracts (1-2 pages; 2 pages
maximum). Paper submissions should use standard ACM SIGPLAN conference format
(10pt), available at http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm. Copies of
accepted papers will be made available at the workshop and published in the
ACM digital library. Submitted papers must not be simultaneously under review
for any other conference or journal, and authors should point out any
substantial overlap with their previously published or currently submitted
work.

IMPORTANT DATES

Papers due: March 10, 2014 (11:59 AOE)
Notification of acceptance: April 28, 2014
Final papers due: May 19, 2014
