3rd Workshop on
Statistical and Machine learning approaches
to ARchitecture and compilaTion

January 25, 2009, Paphos, Cyprus

(co-located with HiPEAC 2009 Conference)

Can machine learning help to solve the multicore code generation issues?

Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue
of the International Journal of Parallel Programming.

The rapid rate of architectural change and the large diversity
of architecture features has made it increasingly difficult
for compiler writers to keep pace with microprocessor evolution.
This problem has been compounded by the introduction of multicores.
Thus, compiler writers have an intractably complex problem to solve.
A similar situation arises in processor design where new approaches
are needed to help computer architects make the best use of new underlying
technologies and to design systems well adapted to futureapplication domains.

Recent studies have shown the great potential of statistical machine
learning and search strategies for compilation and machine design.
The purpose of this workshop is to help consolidate and advance the state
of the art in this emerging area of research. The workshop is a forum
for the presentation of recent developments in compiler techniques
and machine design methodologies based on space exploration
and statistical machine learning approaches with the objective
of improving performance, parallelism, scalability, and adaptability.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Machine Learning, Statistical Approaches, or Search applied to

* Feedback-Directed Compilation
* Auto-tuning Programs + Language Extensions
* Library Generators
* Iterative Compilation
* Dynamic Compilation/Adaptive Execution
* Parallel Compiler Optimizations
* Low-power Optimizations
* Simulation
* Performance Models
* Adaptive Processor and System Architecture
* Design Space Exploration
* Other Topics relevant to Intelligent and Adaptive Compilers/Architectures

**** Paper Submission Guidelines ****

Paper length - maximum 15 pages. Papers must be submitted in the PDF
(preferably) or postscript formats using the workshop submission website:

We suggest to use LNCS LaTeX templates that can be found at (go to "For Authors"
and then "Information for LNCS Editors/Authors").

An informal collection of the papers to be presented will be distributed at
the workshop. All accepted papers will appear on the workshop website.
