We solicit papers in all areas related to characterization of computing
system workloads. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Characterization of applications in domains such as
- Cloud, grid, search engines, e-commerce, web, databases, file/application
- Embedded, real-time, Edge Computing, mobile and extensible distributed
systems, multimedia
- Memory, storage, and file systems
- Life sciences, bioinformatics, scientific computing, finance, forecasting
- Management and/or analytics big data, machine Learning, Analytics, Data
mining and other data-intensive computation
- Security, reliability, biometrics
- User behavior and system-user interaction, social computing
- Cyber-physical systems, pervasive computation and Internet of Things (IoT)

Characterization of workload on emerging technology, such as
- Quantum computation and communication
- Near-threshold Computation
- Non-volatile memory

Characterization of OS, Virtual Machine, middleware and library behavior
- Virtual machines, Websphere, .NET, Java VM, databases
- Graphics libraries, scientific libraries
- Operating system and hypervisor effects and overheads

Implications of workloads in design issues, such as
- Reliability, performance, power, security and privacy, scalability, and
- Processors, memory hierarchy, I/O, and networks
- Performance accelerators, FPGA¹s, GPU¹s, etc.
- Near data processing architectures
- Novel architectures (non-Von-Neumann)

Benchmark creation and evaluation, including
- Multithreaded benchmarks, benchmark cloning
- Profiling, trace collection, synthetic traces
- Validation of benchmarks

Measurement tools and techniques, including
- Instrumentation methodologies for workload verification and
- Techniques for accurate analysis/measurement of production systems
- Analytical and abstract modeling of program behavior and systems
