ESSA 2014 : Fourth Workshop on Energy-Secure System Architectures


When Jun 15, 2014 - Jun 15, 2014
Where Minneapolis (United States)
Submission Deadline Apr 11, 2014

Call For Papers

(In conjunction with ISCA 2014)

The "power wall" has forced chip and system architects to design with
smaller margins between nominal and worst-case operating points.
Dynamic power and thermal management control loops have already become
an integral part of chip and system design. New research papers in
wearout and general reliability management have recently been
published. These new generation management protocols have, however,
opened up other sources of concern: e.g. control loop stability and
robustness of the management protocols. The potential security holes
exposed by the integrated control loops and system safety issues
triggered by potential violations of power or thermal limits are other
areas of concern. We seek to motivate the research community into
adopting a holistic approach to mitigating the power wall and the
concomitant reliability-security wall.

We have coined the term "Energy-Secure System Architectures" to cover
the range of research being pursued within industry and academia in
order to ensure robust and secure functionality, while meeting the
energy-related constraints of the emerging "green computing" era.
This workshop offering, composed of lectures provided by experts in
the areas of power/thermal management, reliability and security, is
targeted to provide a comprehensive view of the hardware and software
aspects of Energy-Secure System Architectures. This is the fourth year
of the offering of this workshop.


This full-day workshop is organized across the following sub-topics:

-- Power and thermal management solutions for modern multi-core
-- Robustness of system power/thermal managers: verification and
design for verification.
-- Reliability and security holes exposed by power/thermal management
-- Guarded, two-level management protocols for safety and low
verification complexity.
-- Architectural implications of and system software support for
energy-secure systems.
-- Security and reliability issues in emerging low power memory

CALL FOR LECTURES (deadline: April 11, 2014)

We invite interested participants to send in a lecture proposal (30
mins minimum to 75 mins maximum). The submission should include a
title and abstract, along with a bio-sketch of the speaker and the
proposed talk duration. Submitted lecture proposals will be reviewed
by a Workshop Program Committee (TBA) chaired by the co-organizers.
The deadline for submission is: April 11, 2014. Please send it to the
co-organizers: Alper Buyuktosunoglu, Pradip Bose and Augusto Vega at:, and
Notification of acceptance: April 25, 2014. There will be a post-
workshop digest consisting of the lecture abstracts and corresponding
slide sets; and depending on interest, a post-workshop special journal
or magazine issue will be organized, in which written versions of
selected articles would be published.
