Call For Papers: 4th Workshop on Systems for Future Multicore Architectures

SFMA 2014 (http://sfma14.cs.washington.edu)


Future multi-core architectures will present a variety of challenges
for system developers, such as non-cache-coherent memory,
heterogeneous processing cores and the exploitation of novel
architectural features. SFMA ’14 is a forum for researchers in the
operating systems, language runtime and virtual machine communities
to present and discuss their experiences with the new generation of
highly-parallel hardware.

SFMA '14 is co-located with EuroSys '14 and takes place April 13,
2014 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished work that
exposes a new problem, advocates a specific solution, or reports on
actual experience. Papers should be submitted using the standard
two-column ACM SIG proceedings or SIG alternate template, and are
limited to 6 pages (including figures, tables and references).

Final papers will be made available to participants electronically
at the meeting, but to facilitate resubmission to more formal
venues, no archival proceedings will be published, and papers will
not be sent to the ACM Digital Library. Authors will be given the
option of having their final paper accessible from the workshop

Submission site: http://sfma14.cs.washington.edu


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* novel multi-core operating system designs,
* runtime systems and programming environments for future hardware,
* OS or runtime support for heterogeneous processing cores,
* scheduling on many-core architectures,
* energy efficiency, fault tolerance and resource management on
future multi-core architectures,
* performance evaluation of potential future hardware,
* architectural support for systems-level software, and
* case studies of system-level software design for current or future
multi-core hardware.
