                             CALL FOR PAPERS

                   ADAPT: 4th International Workshop on
                  Adaptive Self-tuning Computing Systems                            

                   January 22nd, 2014, Vienna, Austria
                      (co-located with HiPEAC 2014)

              Special focus on experimental reproducibility!

Computing systems are rapidly evolving into heterogeneous machines featuring 
many processor cores. This leads to a tremendous complexity with an 
unprecedented number of available design and optimisation choices for 
architectures, applications, compilers and run-time systems. Using outdated, 
non-adaptive technology results in an enormous waste of expensive computing 
resources and energy, while slowing down time to market. 

Ideally, such systems should be able to automatically adjust their behaviour to
multi-objective usage scenarios at all levels (hardware and software) based on
empirical, dynamic, iterative, statistical, collective, bio-inspired, model-driven,
agent-based, machine learning and alternative techniques while fully utilising 
available resources.

The 4th International Workshop on Adaptive Self-tuning Computing Systems is an 
interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, developers and 
application writers to discuss ideas, experience, methodology, applications, 
practical techniques and tools to improve or change current and future
computing systems using self-tuning technology. 

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Topics of interests include techniques 
to simplify, automate and standardise the design, programming, optimisation and
adaptation of large-scale computing systems for improving multiple objectives
such as performance, power consumption, utilisation, reliability and scalability.

==== Paper Submission Guidelines ====
We invite papers in three categories:

* Full papers presenting novel ideas with mature content (6 pages).

* Extended abstract presenting novel ideas with preliminary results and
exploratory work including wild & crazy ideas (2 pages).

* Extended abstract of already published work (must be your own) presenting
ideas relevant to the ADAPT workshop. There will be no proceedings for this
type of submissions.

We particularly welcome papers where experimental results can be validated
by the community. If accepted, the final papers should include Appendix with 
detailed research methodology and references to all used data and tools 
(should be publicly available by the time of the workshop). 
Such submissions should include (reproducible) in the title.
