Call For Papers

End to End Cognitive workflows span varying degrees of granularity of parallelism. Accelerating such workflows using a single accelerator type usually provides speedup only for a limited set of stages. IBM's next-generation POWER9 systems will support a large collection of accelerator types switched through a high bandwidth on-chip crossbar switch. This will allow a large class of workloads and multi-granular workflows to be accelerated using a single platform. This workshop will explore acceleration opportunities in existing and upcoming workflows. We will also explore the creation of a community & ecosystem around POWER9 acceleration technology for academics and industry practitioners. This workshop is co-located with the 50th International Symposium for Microarchitecture (MICRO - 2017)
