                      1st International Workshop on
    Approximate and Transprecision Computing on Emerging Technologies
                                ATCET 2018
                       at ISC High Performance 2018
                    Frankfurt, Germany, June 28, 2018

                   Opening keynote by: Piotr Luszczek, 
            Research Director at the University of Tennessee
Guaranteed numerical precision of each elementary step in a complex 
computation has been the mainstay of traditional computing systems for 
many years. This era is at its twilight: to overcome the “power wall” 
in Exascale systems, a shift from traditional computing paradigms is now 
The ATCET workshop brings together experts from many fields to discuss 
and explore the potential of approximation in hardware and software, 
from both a statistical and a deterministic viewpoint. Transprecision 
computing represents the paradigm shift to break the current performance 
and energy-efficiency barriers of systems at all scales, from sensors 
to supercomputers.

=== Topics of interest ===
Topics on approximate and transprecision computing addressed in the 
workshop include (and are not limited to):
- Formal and mathematical methods and algorithms
- Error resilient methods and algorithms
- Emulation, metrics, modeling, and benchmarking
- Compiler and system software support
- Emerging Technologies: hardware, processor, memory, and storage
- Applications in HPC, Scientific Computing, Big Data, and Deep Learning

=== Program ===
The workshop will be held from 9:00 to 13:00.

The format consists of an opening Keynote by Piotr Luszczek, Research 
at the University of Tennessee, and a series of contributed talks.
