    Author Notification: October 15, 2001
    Camera-Ready Papers: November 5, 2001


The Third Workshop on Media and Stream Processors (previously known as
the Workshop on Media Processors and DSPs) brings together researchers,
computer architects, and engineers working in different fields in the
area of multimedia, communications, and digital signal processing. In
recent years many general purpose and digital signal processors have
evolved to accelerate stream and media processing. The new title for
the workshop reflects this growth. The workshop will provide a forum
for presenting and exchanging new ideas and experiences in this area.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

        * Optimization/performance analysis of processor architectures for
                    media and stream-based processing
        * Compiler/software optimizations for subword parallelism and media
                    and stream-based processing
        * Hardware/Compiler techniques for improving memory performance
                    of media and stream-based processing
        * Workload characterization of media and streaming applications
        * Low-power design for media and stream-based processors
        * Application-specific hardware architectures for graphics, video,
                    audio, communications, and other media and streaming
        * System-on-a-chip architectures for media and stream processors
        * Hardware/Software Co-Design of media and stream processors
        * Integration of media and stream processors with general-purpose
        * Desktop/Set-top media and stream-based system architctures
        * Case studies of commercial media and stream-based processing
                    products and solutions


Talks will be accepted on the basis of an extended abstract of no longer

than 8 double-spaced single-column pages that describes the work, its
significance, and the current status of the research. Submit one
electronic copy of the paper in PostScript or PDF format by September
Please visit the workshop home page for submission instructions.

Notification of acceptance will be given by October 15, and camera-ready

papers will be due November 5. The final paper should be no longer than

10 single-spaced pages (including figures, references, and appendices)
using 12pt font. All accepted papers will be presented at the workshop
and included in informal proceedings that will be distributed at the
workshop. In addition, accepted papers will be made available on the
workshop home page.

MICRO-34 will take place in Austin, Texas. Austin is unique: a focal
point of high tech industry, a world-class university, and a cultural
center known for its live music, diversity, and restaurants. The
symposium will be held in Austin, Texas from Dec. 1 to Dec. 5, 2001.
