    2nd Workshop on

    Statistical and Machine learning approaches
    to ARchitecture and compilaTion


    January 27, 2008, Goteborg, Sweden

    (co-located with HiPEAC 2008 Conference)

    TWO WEEKS to Submission Deadline: November 2nd, 2007


    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/
