[Call for Papers]
AIDArc-2018: International Workshop on AI-assisted Design for Architecture

To be held in conjunction with
The 45th International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA)
June 3rd, 2018 Los Angeles, CA

Recent advancements in machine learning algorithms, fueled by increased
data availability and high-performance computing infrastructure, have led
to successful applications of machine learning (and AI in general) in
numerous disciplines and domains. Although much attention has been drawn in
the computer system architecture community on accelerating machine
learning, limited research has been conducted to utilize the power of AI/ML
to help architects design better computer architectures and systems.

The AIDArc Workshop is intended to bring together researchers, scientists
and practitioners across academia and industry, to share early discoveries,
successful examples, and opinions on opportunities and challenges regarding
utilizing AI to assist computer system designs. Research along this line
may potentially transform the way computers are designed and optimized. It
may also lead to interesting “self-evolving architecture”, where AI helps
to speed up computer systems which, in turn, are used to speed up the AI.

Topics of submitted papers include, but not limited to, the exploration of
artificial intelligence in assisting the design and optimization of:

– Various components of computer system architecture, e.g., branch
predicator, cache, memory, I/O, interconnection networks, etc.
– Various design objectives of computer systems, e.g., power/energy,
performance, resource, reliability, security, etc.
– Different types of computer architectures and systems, e.g.,
embedded/mobile/wearable devices, CPUs, GPUs, special-purpose accelerators,
datacenters, HPCs, etc.

Papers will be reviewed based on originality, novelty, technical strength,
presentation quality, correctness and relevance to the workshop scope.
Early but novel works on related topics are highly encouraged.


To submit a paper, go to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aidarc2018
and follow the instructions. Papers of up to 6 pages should be submitted in
PDF format (readable by Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 and higher) based on the
IEEE template (
The page limitation includes figures, tables, and references.
