Call For Papers

Submission deadline extended to Feb 28th, 2014 !!!

The goal of FastPath is to bring together researchers and practitioners involved in cross-stack
hardware/software performance analysis, modeling, and evaluation of workload optimized systems.
The goal is increasingly important as the slowdown in Moore's Law makes it increasingly important to optimize
systems around specific workloads. Such workload optimized systems have hardware and/or software
specifically designed to run well for a particular application or application class. Such systems include, but are
not limited to traditional CPUs assisted with accelerators (ASICs, FPGAs, GPUs), memory accelerators, I/O
accelerators, hybrid systems, and IT appliances. This workload optimized system approach contrasts to the
broad general purpose direction of computing over many decades. However, the workload optimized systems
approach is growing in importance, as we see in systems from cellphones to tablets to routers to game machines
to Top500 supercomputers, and IT appliances such as IBM’s DataPower and Netezza, and Oracle’s Exadata.

FastPath seeks to facilitate the exchange of ideas on performance analysis and evaluation of workload
optimized systems and seeks papers on a wide range of topics including, but not limited to:
· Workloads
· Simulators
· Industrial Experiences
· GPUs, FPGAs, ASIC Accelerators
· Game Consoles and their Sensors
· RDMA and Infiniband
· Measurements on accelerated systems
· Analytical Techniques
· Programming Models
· MapReduce, Hadoop
· Runtime Management Systems

FastPath is focused on presentations and will not have a proceedings. Thus early ideas can be presented. For submissions, please provide a 1 or 2-page extended abstract by February 28, 2014:
