******* CALL FOR PAPERS: IISWC 2016 *******

2016 IEEE International Symposium on Workload Characterization
Providence, RI, September 25-27, 2016

*** Important Dates
- Abstracts Submission: May 13, 2016
- Paper Submission: May 20, 2016
- Acceptance Notification: July 22, 2016

This symposium is dedicated to the understanding and
characterization of workloads that run on all types of computing
systems. New applications and programming paradigms continue to emerge
rapidly as the diversity and performance of computers increase. On one
hand, improvements in computing technology are usually based on a
solid understanding and analysis of existing workloads. On the other
hand, computing workloads evolve and change with advances in
microarchitecture, compilers, programming languages, and networking
communication technologies. Whether they are smart phones and deeply
embedded systems at the low end or massively parallel systems at the
high end, the design of future computing machines can be significantly
improved if we understand the characteristics of the workloads that
are expected to run on them. This symposium will focus on
characterizing and understanding emerging applications in consumer,
commercial and scientific computing.

*** Topics of Interest
We solicit papers in all areas related to characterization of
computing system workloads. Topics of interest include (but are not
limited to):

• Characterization of applications in domains such as
o Search engines, e-commerce, web services, databases, file/application
o Embedded, mobile, multimedia, real-time, 3D-Graphics, gaming,
o Life sciences, bioinformatics, scientific computing, finance, forecasting
o Machine Learning, Analytics, Data mining
o Security, reliability, biometrics
o Grid and Cloud computing
o User behavior and system-user interaction

• Characterization of OS, Virtual Machine, middleware and library behavior
o Virtual machines, Websphere, .NET, Java VM, databases
o Graphics libraries, scientific libraries
o Operating system and hypervisor effects and overheads

• Implications of workloads in design issues, such as
o Power management, reliability, security, performance
o Processors, memory hierarchy, I/O, and networks
o Design of accelerators, FPGA’s, GPU’s, etc.
o Novel architectures (non-Von-Neumann)

• Benchmark creation and evaluation, including
o Multithreaded benchmarks, benchmark cloning
o Profiling, trace collection, synthetic traces
o Validation of benchmarks

• Measurement tools and techniques, including
o Instrumentation methodologies for workload verification and
o Techniques for accurate analysis/measurement of production systems
o Analytical and abstract modeling of program behavior and systems

• Emerging workloads and architectures, such as
o Transactional memory workloads; workloads for multi/many-core systems
o Stream-based computing workloads; web2.0/internet workloads;
cyber-physical workloads
o Near data processing architectures
