# About iWAPT

The goal of the Ninth International Workshop on Automatic Performance
Tuning (*iWAPT 2014*) is to bring together researchers who are
investigating automated techniques for constructing and/or adapting
algorithms and software for high performance on modern complex computer

We are particularly interested in autotuning and its relationship to the
following topic areas (list is not exhaustive):

* Machine-adaptive algorithms and software
* Program generation
* Performance analysis and modeling
* Parallel and distributed computing
* Numerical algorithms and libraries
* Multi- and manycore systems, heterogeneous architectures
* Compilation, e.g., iterative and empirical compilers
* Programming models
* Runtime systems
* Empirical search heuristics
* Power- and/or energy-aware computing

# Paper submissions

iWAPT 2014 invites two kinds of contributions: regular papers and
published papers. Only regular papers will become a part of the formal
though all papers will be distributed to workshop attendees. The goal of
format is to encourage broad participation in the workshop, both for new
work and
prior but current work. All accepted papers will be assigned a speaking
slot in
the workshop's agenda.

Regular papers present new, previously unpublished work. Such papers
will undergo
the usual peer-review, judged on the criteria of novelty, technical
and writing quality. If accepted, they become part of the official
VECPAR proceedings.
They will also be included in the post-conference proceedings of VECPAR
2014, which
Springer will publish in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
is subject to confirmation by the iWAPT program committee that the
authors have
revised the paper per reviewer comments as needed. Further information
the process will be sent to authors with the notice of acceptance.

Prior papers are those that have already been published but still
reflect the
authors' current interests. They may also be new surveys of the authors'
prior work.
Importantly, such papers will be distributed locally to attendees but
will not be
included in the formal published proceedings. Review of such papers will
be lighter,
with acceptance determined by availability of time in the program,
relevance, and
likely significance to workshop attendees.

# Submission guidelines

The camera ready version of papers submitted for presentation in iWAPT 2014
should be limited to 8 pages. The manuscripts must be formatted according
to the Rules of the Springer Series Lecture Notes in Computer Science
in particular the styles defined in lncs-article-latex2e.zip
(http://www.vecpar.org/lncs-article-latex2e.zip) and
lncs-article-word.zip (http://www.vecpar.org/lncs-article-word.zip).

Please do not use any header or footer, running title or author, or
the A4paper option.

Submissions must include a title, authors' names, addresses, complete
affiliations, e-mail address of all authors, a short abstract (100 words)
and a maximum of three topics from the topics list of the conference that
you believe best fits your paper.

Accepted submissions will be included in the material to be distributed
to the participants of the meeting.

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to
register and present the paper. PostScript and source versions of your
paper must be submitted electronically through the paper submission
system (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwapt2014).
