**** Call For Presentations ****
Update: The DaSi 2013 submission deadline has been extended to April 7th
(from March 29th).

The 2nd Dark Silicon Workshop
Tel-Aviv, Israel.
June 24th, 2013. Held in conjunction with ISCA 2013

The second Dark Silicon Workshop provides a unique forum for discussing
the challenges and opportunities that Dark Silicon presents. There are
many research questions left to answer before new architectures built
specifically to mitigate or exploit dark silicon become the default
platforms for general purpose computing. To scale alongside dark
silicon, architects will need to design and verify specialized
processors in increasing numbers. Making heterogeneous platforms easy
to program will require us to reconsider traditional language and OS
abstractions. Traditionally, many of the performance gains from
specialized hardware stem from customized memory designs, and it is
not yet clear how best to integrate multiple such memory designs
together into a single architecture. These and other challenges will
face researchers as they shed light on silicon’s dark future.

The organizing committee is soliciting presentations on any topic
related to Dark Silicon, including (but not limited to):
- Architectural approaches to managing and exploiting dark silicon
- Power management techniques
- Energy/power-efficient circuit designs
- Energy/power-efficient memory systems
- Scalable design and synthesis techniques for customizable and
specialized cores
- Novel applications for idle chip area

The goal is to facilitate the exchange of the latest ideas, insights,
and knowledge that can propel future progress. In lieu of printed
proceedings, we will post the slides and extended abstracts of the
presentations online. Presentation of new work at the workshop does
not preclude future publication.

Workshop submissions should be in the form of a 2-page presentation
abstract. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of impact,
novelty, and general interest. The submission deadline is April 7th,
2013, with notification of acceptance by May 10, 2013.

Further details on abstract submission, technical program, tutorials,
travel, social program, and travel grants will be provided at the
workshop website:
