                 Workshop on
    Feedback-Directed Compiler Optimization
        for Multi-Core Architectures

            7th HiPEAC Conference
       Paris, France, Jan 23-25, 2012


FD-COMA is a one-day workshop during the 7th HiPEAC Conference in Paris, 
January 23-25, 2012. The workshop is loosely connected to the FP-7 
project Advance, but we particularly welcome contributions from outside 
the project consortium.


Feedback driven optimizations have long proven to be powerful 
instruments for achieving better hardware utilization, but the on-going 
multi-core/many-core revolution opens up a whole new realm of possible 
applications and variations of feedback-directed compiler optimization. 
The increasing hardware diversity of execution platforms and the 
likewise increasing hardware heterogeneity of individual execution 
platforms make compile time resource planning less and less feasible. 
Dynamic compilation techniques are required, instead, that adapt 
application programs to the actual hardware they are running on to make 
best use of it. Furthermore, the abundance of compute cores allows us to 
run feedback-directed compiler optimizations in parallel with an 
application itself and, thus, to adapt a running application to the 
hardware it is running on or to the data it is processing, to name just 
a few opportunities.

This workshop aims at bringing people together that share an interest in 
the novel opportunities for feedback directed optimisations in the 
context of the emerging heterogeneous architectures.

Main topics:

+ Feedback directed compiler optimization for multi-core architectures
+ Compiler representations for feedback information
+ Performance modeling for feedback, including statistical and
   constraint-based techniques
+ Performance measurement using feedback information
+ Exploiting feedback for heterogeneous multi-core systems
+ Adaptive, feedback-controlled runtime systems for multi-core
+ Exploiting feedback information for energy savings

FD-COMA welcomes submission of papers describing:

+ Experimental work
+ Industrial experience
+ Theoretical work
+ Software and hardware platforms
+ Work in progress
all with respect to the above workshop topics

Paper submission:

Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously 
submitted elsewhere. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages. 
Submit a PDF copy of your manuscript via EasyChair (not yet open).

Each paper will receive a minimum of two reviews. Papers will be 
selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and 
presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their 
papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers 
will be made available at the workshop in electronic form.

Important dates:

     Submission deadline: 11/11/2011
     Notification of acceptance: 22/11/2011
     Final version due: 13/1/2012
