CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: RAAW 2006 in conjunction with MICRO-39
Sunday Dec 10th, Orlando, Florida,
Walt Disney World Swan Hotel

Reconfigurable and Adaptive Architecture Workshop (RAAW 2006), Held
in Conjunction with 39th International Conference on Microarchitecture

Important Dates:

Workshop Theme

The tremendous advances in process technology provide architects and
microarchitects with many interesting opportunities for making use of
the huge transistor budget to enhance performance and increase
throughput. However, the complexity of software applications and system
software presents a challenging problem. The varying requirements of
the different applications running on a single machine, as well as the
changing behavior of a single application during its lifetime, make
choosing a suitable general purpose architecture a big challenge. This
raises the need for an architecture that can adapt to the different
requirements of the applications. The power consumption limits and the
growing importance of reliability further add to the appeal of such
adaptive architectures. Adaptive and reconfigurable architectures are
also becoming important in the embedded systems area. The
functionalities and the performance requirements of embedded systems
are increasing. However, the very low energy consumption requirements
of such systems have to be maintained.

The Reconfigurable and Adaptive Architecture Workshop provides a
high-quality forum for computer scientists and engineers to present
their latest research findings in the rapidly evolving field of
reconfigurable and adaptive architectures.
