1st Workshop on
RESource 1Awareness and 2Application 3Auto-tuning in 4Adaptive and heterogeNeous compuTing

Adaptive and heterogeneous computing platforms are gaining interest for applications spanning from embedded to high performance computing due to their promising power/performance ratio. However, sharing hardware resources creates some challenges with respect to predictable execution time and power consumption. In traditional real-time approaches, resource usage is over dimensioned to achieve worst case guarantees, whereas in best effort approaches, predictability remains a challenge. The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers from the area of resource awareness and application autotuning, to discuss their various approaches, their commonalities and differences, to foster collaboration between them and to share their most recent research achievements with the international research community.

March 18, 2016, Dresden, Germany
DATE 2016 Friday Workshop

For the main workshop sessions we plan invited talks (30 minutes long) from top-level specialists coming from both industry and academia. We plan an open Call for Posters in order to give young researchers and PhD students a chance to introduce their research and to get in personal contact during the workshop. In addition to the PhD Forum poster session, there will be a short interactive presentation time for introducing the posters during the workshop. At the end of the workshop day, speakers from the main workshop sessions are invited to the one-hour panel on: "Resource Awareness and Application Autotuning: Challenges and Trends" to further discuss similarities and differences between the approaches, benefits and limitations of resource-aware computing and application autotuning.

Topic Areas:
  • Architectures: on architectural mechanism for adaptive and heterogeneous computing.
  • Resource awareness: on resource management and awareness for parallel computing.
  • Auto-tuning: on application autotuning mechanisms for parallel computing.
  • Applications: on the analysis, development, modification and integration of applications in the embedded and high performance computing domains.

Posters Submission Instructions

We invite posters on the aforementioned topics of interest. In addition to the poster sessions, there will be a short presentation slot for introducing the posters during the workshop. Poster submission should be a 2-page double-column extended abstract including figures. We suggest using standard IEEE template for the submissions. The submission should clearly specify the relation to the topics addressed in the workshop. A workshop digest based upon the two-pages abstract and one-page poster will be distributed to all participants of the workshop. Note that the posters presented at the DATE workshops are NOT disseminated through the official DATE proceedings or through any other formal channels, such as, for example, the IEEExplore or the ACM Digital Library. However, we plan to index a 5-pages version of the accepted paper ar CEURS-WS and DBLP. Posters will be published online on this web page.

Posters submission EXTENDED deadline: January 15, 2016

Target audience

DATE represents the major international event for research on Systems-on-Chip, Systems-on-Board and Embedded Systems Software. This workshop targets the traditional DATE community as well as experts from high performance computing, both working on resources awareness and application autotuning. Based on the experience of the organizers, we plan to enforce our publicity efforts to get a significant attendance (estimated as about 50 registered attendees from both industry and academia). To further encourage the attendance to the Workshop, we plan to distribute an open Call for Posters covering the topics of the workshop topic areas.
