Call For Papers

2006 ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Memory Systems Performance & Correctness
(MSPC 2006)

October 22, 2006 - San Jose, CA, USA

Co-located with ASPLOS XII

Important dates:

* Abstract: Monday July 24, 2006
* Paper submission: Friday July 28, 2006, at 11:59:59 PM Eastern time
* Notification: September 8, 2006
* Final paper: September 22, 2006

MSPC focuses on improving the memory system performance and
correctness of general-purpose programs. MSPC continues the successful
series of MSP workshops held in 2002 (Berlin), 2004 (Washington, DC),
and 2005 (Chicago). This multi-disciplinary workshop fosters
collaboration among researchers in a range of fields including
compilers, memory management, programming languages, architecture,
operating systems, performance evaluation, and database systems.

We solicit papers on all aspects of memory system performance and
correctness. Areas of interest include but are not limited to the
following topics:

* Analysis of memory systems performance (including power, bandwidth,
    and latency)
* Static and dynamic techniques for understanding and improving memory
* Hardware and software techniques for ensuring memory safety and
    detecting memory-related bugs (e.g., memory leaks, dangling
    pointers, out-of-bounds memory accesses, invalid C pointer
* Hardware memory models and their impact on software
* Specifications of programming language (and library) shared memory
* Better shared-memory programming models (e.g., transactional memory)
* Data race detection and debugging of programs with (possibly
    intentional) data races
* Managed memory and garbage collection optimizations
* Memory hierarchy design for chip multiprocessors (CMPs)
* Pre-fetching and compression to improve memory system performance
* Code, data, or page placement to eliminate page faults and cache
* Memory system issues in embedded computers and tiny devices
* Impact of new storage technologies

Software, hardware, and hybrid approaches are encouraged. In
addition, we solicit papers from practitioners describing problems and
experiences with memory performance and correctness in specific
application domains.

Submission Guidelines: Full paper submissions should not exceed 10
pages in standard ACM SIGPLAN conference format. Papers should be
submitted electronically through the workshop web site
( Copies of accepted papers will be made
available at the workshop and published in the ACM digital
library. Submitted papers must not be simultaneously under review for
any other conference or journal, and authors should point out any
substantial overlap with their previously published or currently
submitted work.
