                                                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                                                            2nd Workshop on

                                  Statistical and Machine learning approaches
                                              to ARchitecture and compilaTion


                                          January 27, 2008, Goteborg, Sweden

                                    (co-located with HiPEAC 2008 Conference)

                                      **** NEW PUBLICATION INFORMATION ****

                The best papers submitted will be considered for publication
              in a special issue of Transactions on HiPEAC, Springer-Verlag


The rapid rate of architectural change has placed enormous pressure on
compiler writers to keep pace with microprocessor evolution. This
problem is compounded by the current trend to have multi-cores and
multi-threading which makes such systems increasingly difficult to
target. Also, current methods of designing computer systems will no
longer be feasible in 10-15 years time; what is needed are new
innovative approaches to architecture design that scale both with
advances in underlying technology and with future application domains.

In recent years, several papers have been published showing great
potential in constructing compilers and architectures using approaches
such as machine learning and search.

The purpose of this workshop is to promote new ideas and to present
recent developments in compiler and architecture design using machine
learning, statistical approaches, and search in order to enhance their
performance, scalability, and adaptability.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Machine Learning, Statistical Approaches, or Search applied to

* Feedback-Directed Compilation
* Auto-tuning Programs + Language Extensions
* Library Generators
* Iterative Compilation
* Dynamic Compilation/Adaptive Execution
* Parallel Compiler Optimizations
* Low-power Optimizations
* Simulation
* Performance Models
* Adaptive Processor and System Architecture
* Design Space Exploration
* Other Topics relevant to Intelligent and Adaptive Compilers/

**** Paper Submission Guidelines ****

Paper length - maximum 15 pages.

Papers must be submitted in the PDF (preferably) or postscript
