                                                CALL FOR PAPERS

                                TRUST: 1st ACM SIGPLAN Workshop
                          on Reproducible Research Methodologies
            and New Publication Models in Computer Engineering

                                      June 12,2014, Edinburgh, UK
                                      (co-located with PLDI 2014)



It becomes excessively challenging or even impossible to capture,
share and accurately reproduce experimental results in computer
engineering for fair and trustable evaluation and future
improvement. This is often due to ever rising complexity of the
design, analysis and optimization of computer systems, increasing
number of ad-hoc tools, interfaces and techniques, lack of
a common experimental methodology, and lack of simple and unified
mechanisms, tools and repositories to preserve and exchange
knowledge apart from numerous publications where reproducibility
is oaten not even considered. This SIGPLAN workshop is intended
to become an interdisciplinary forum for academic and industrial
researchers, practitioners and developers in computer engineering
to discuss challenges, ideas, experience, trustable and
reproducible research methodologies, practical techniques, tools
and repositories to:

* capture, preserve, formalize, systematize, exchange and improve
    knowledge and experimental results including negative ones
* describe and catalog whole experimental setups with all related
    material including algorithms, benchmarks, codelets, datasets,
    tools, models and any other artifact
* validate and verify experimental results by the community
* develop common research interfaces for existing or new tools
* develop common experimental frameworks and repositories
* share rare hardware and computational resources for
    experimental validation
* deal with variability and rising amount of experimental data
    using statistical analysis, data mining, predictive modeling and
    other techniques
* implement previously published experimental scenarios
    (auto-tuning, run-time adaptation) using common infrastructure
* implement open access to publications and data (particularly
    discussing intellectual property IP and legal issues)
* improve reviewing process
* enable interactive articles

==== Paper Submission Guidelines ====

We invite papers in three categories (please use these prefixes
for your submission title):

* T1: Extended abstracts should be at most 3 pages long
            (excluding bibliography). We welcome preliminary and exploratory
            work, presentation of related tools and repositories
            in development, experience reports, and wild & crazy ideas.
* T2: Full papers should be at most 6 pages long (excluding
            bibliography). Papers in this category are expected to have
            relatively mature content.
* T3: Papers validating and sharing past research on design and
            optimization of computer systems published in relevant
            conferences. These papers should be at most 6 pages long
            (excluding bibliography).

Submissions should be in PDF formatted with double
column/single-spacing using 10pt fonts and printable on US letter
or A4 sized paper. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted
papers can be published online on the conference website that
will not prevent later publication of extended papers.
We currently arrange proceedings to be published in the ACM
Digital Library.
