Dear colleague,

We apologize in advance if you receive multiple copies of this Call for


2007 IEEE International Symposium on Workload Characterization

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

Web site:

IISWC is building a set of benchmarks to distribute to
researchers. You are invited to participate in the
creation of this benchmark set. In addition to the
normal paper submissions, IISWC will accept "benchmark
submissions". These comprise C, C++, C#, or Java code,
inputs to the code, and an associated six-page paper.
The goal of the paper should be to explain the benchmark,
what it does, and why it is relevant to a particular
research community. Benchmark authors should be willing
to allow distribution of source code and input sets.
Code must be open source consistent with the GNU general
public license, see We
encourage software developers to submit benchmarks for any
application domain, especially from under-represented and
emerging domains; we also encourage multi-threaded benchmark
submissions. Example workload areas of interest are, but not
limited to, data mining, bio-informatics, virtualization,
gaming, 3D graphics, biometrics, security, embedded, mobile,
multimedia, etc.

The criteria that will be used to judge benchmark submissions

                  * significance of the benchmark to a user community
                  * ease of use
                  * quality of the benchmark write-up
                  * portability of the submitted code

Successful submissions will be included in the IISWC benchmark
set and their associated descriptive six-page papers will be
published in the IISWC proceedings.

Important dates:
                  * Paper and benchmark submission: April 15, 2007
                  * Notification: May 28, 2007

Submissions will be in the form of a Web page that will include
documentation on the benchmark, source code, and benchmark inputs.

Send all submissions to Lieven Eeckhout at

                  * Lieven Eeckhout (Chair), Ghent University
                  * Kevin Lepak, AMD
                  * Alex Ramirez, Barcelona Supercomputing Center & UPC
                  * Sami Yehia, ARM
                  * Tim Sherwood, Univ. of California, Santa Barbara
                  * Yan Solihin, NCSU


Best regards,
Bhuvan Urgaonkar
(for the IISWC committee)
