Dear colleague,

We apologize in advance if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.


2007 IEEE International Symposium on Workload Characterization

                  IISWC 2007
                  September 27-29 2007,
                  Boston, MA, USA

Web site:

This symposium is dedicated to the understanding and characterization
of workloads which run on all types of computer systems. New
applications and programming paradigms continue to emerge as the use
of computers becomes more widespread and more sophisticated. Improving
process and communication technology, innovations in
microarchitecture, compilers, and virtual machine technology are also
changing the nature of problems that are being solved by computing
systems. Whether they are PDAs, wireless and embedded systems at the
low end or massively parallel systems at the high end, the design of
tomorrow's computing machines can be significantly improved through
the knowledge and ability to simulate the workload expected to run on

Important dates
                  Abstract submission: March 12, 2007
                  Paper submissions: March 19, 2007
                  Acceptance Notification: May 28, 2007

Topics of Interest
Papers are solicited in all areas related to characterization of
computing system workload. Topics of interest to participants in
the symposium include (but are not limited to):

          * Characterization of applications in areas like
                      o Search engines, E-commerce, Web server, Database, and
                                  Multi-tier applications
                      o Embedded, Mobile, Multimedia, 3d-Graphics, Gaming,
                      o Life Sciences, Bio-informatics, Scientific Computing
                      o Security, Reliability, Biometrics
          * Characterization of OS, Virtual Machines, Middleware and Library
                      o VMs, Websphere, .NET, Java VM, CLI
                      o Graphics libraries, scientific libraries
          * Characterization of system behavior, including
                      o Operating system and hypervisor effects
                      o Effects due to virtualization and dynamic optimization
                      o Failures, availability, and reliability
          * Implications of workload in design issues, such as
                      o Processors, memory hierarchy, I/O, and networks
                      o Hardware accelerators (GPGPU, XML, crypto, etc.)
                      o Power management, reliability, security
          * Benchmark creation issues, including
                      o Multithreaded benchmarks
                      o Profiling, trace collection, synthetic traces
                      o Validation of benchmarks
          * Abstract modeling of program behavior
