FD-COMA is a half-day workshop during the 8th HiPEAC Conference in Berlin,
January 21-23, 2013. The workshop is loosely connected to the FP-7 project
Advance, but we particularly welcome contributions from outside the project


Feedback driven optimizations have long proven to be powerful instruments
for achieving better hardware utilization, but the on-going multi-core and
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
  +  Data representation for runtime feedback information
  +  Performance modelling for feedback, including statistical and
     constraint-based techniques
  +  Performance measurement techniques suitable for dynamic feedback
  +  Exploiting feedback for improved scheduling and improved mapping
  +  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 in ACM SIGPLAN
double column format. Submit a PDF copy of your manuscript via EasyChair:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fdcoma2013 .

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 in printed form during the shop as well as in electronic form
on the workshop homepage and as part of the HiPEAC conference materials.

Important dates:

     Submission deadline: 12/10/2012
     Notification of acceptance: 12/11/2012
     Final version due: 8/12/2012
