Call for Papers

This workshop intends to be an informal, privileged, forum to present and discuss new ideas, challenges, open issues, and trends regarding autotuning and runtime adaptivity in the context of energy-efficient HPC systems. This includes but not limited to the entire vertical stack ranging from the software components (programming best-practices, tools, compilers, runtime environments, operating-systems) to the hardware and firmware components at support of high level autotuning and runtime adaptivity mechanisms. The workshop intends to bring together practitioners, people from supercomputing centers, and researchers interested on those topics. It is foreseen that the workshop may contribute to encourage collaborations among the participants.

The workshop will address, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • Holistic approaches for autotuning and runtime adaptivity
  • Methods to control the decision layers when targeting computations to HPC systems
  • Self-adaptive applications
  • Optimizations for energy efficiency
  • Frameworks and tools for autotuning
  • DSLs for describing autotuning strategies
  • Parallel application autotuning
  • Matching dynamically program parallelism to platform parallelism
  • Runtime adaptivity to variable workloads, resource management and power management
  • Monitoring libraries for autotuning
  • Machine learning approaches for autotuning
  • Autotuning and runtime adaptivity in the context of hardware accelerators using GPUs and/or FPGAs
  • Applications showing the advantages of online autotuning in HPC
  • Power- and energy-aware job schedulers, runtime systems and operating systems
  • Hardware and architectural support for runtime adaptivity

Paper submission instructions

Proceedings are intended to be published in the ACM International Conferences Proceedings Series. Papers should be submitted electronically through the easychair. The review process will be single-blind. Electronic paper submission requires a full paper or a short paper (for posters), up to 6 or 2, respectively, double column ACM format pages, including figures and references. Papers should be submitted in PDF format. Please use the following template when preparing your manuscript:
