Call For Papers

In all science and engineering fields, experiments disprove hypotheses or provide evidence that proves a negative. The data and information gathered from these "failed" experiments are often discarded, as “negative” results are not seen as fit for publication. However, these data are still useful to scientists because, besides identifying unfruitful lines of reasoning, they nevertheless often lead to new insights and methodologies. Furthermore, independent researchers sometimes pursue similar interests, resulting in wasted time and effort by multiple people in pursuit of an idea that would not work.

Workshop for Discarded and Unsuccessful Data provides a forum to discuss experiments that took an unexpected turn. Results which “prove a negative” can be presented to identify unworthy lines of research, saving others from repeating the experiments. The workshop will encourage discussion of results to give insight into new directions that can rise from the ashes of otherwise discarded data. The Workshop for Discarded and Unsuccessful Data isn’t a place to publish seemingly unpublishable results, but a platform to help grow new research from experiments otherwise perceived as unsuccessful.

We welcome contributions on topics relevant to ISPASS attendees and the computer architecture community, in general. Submissions should be no longer than 6 pages (IEEE double column format, at least 10pt font).

Submissions should be sent to:
