Call For Papers: CSA’19

7th International Workshop on Computer Systems and Architectures (CSA'19)

To be held in conjunction with CANDAR'19, Nagasaki, Japan, November 26-29, 2019

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for the
exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques and research in
the field of computer systems and architectures.

 [Topics of interest include, but are not limited to]:
<Computer hardware>: logic circuits, memory systems, I/O systems,
supercomputers, FPGA, multi-core processors, computer terminals,
<VLSI computers>: VLSI architectures, microcomputers, memory, SoC,
NoC, multiprocessors
<Computer systems>: Next-generation computers, parallel processing
systems, grid, PC clusters, distributed systems, embedded systems,
autonomous system, computer communication, operation and maintenance
control, storage systems, embedded systems, IoT, industrial systems,
network-connected home appliances, smart home appliances
<System software>: operating systems, databases, language processors, compilers
<Application software>: computer graphics, CAD, production management
systems, simulation
<Computer networks>: network interfaces, communication mechanism
software, cloud computing
<Computing techniques>: edge computing, reconfigurable computing,
approximate computing, machine learning, high performance computing,
real-world computing, real-time processing

[Special Session on Large-scale HPC Application Modernization (LHAM)]
We plan to organize CSA special session on Large-scale HPC Application
Modernization (LHAM).
The code size and complexity of an HPC application inevitably increase
for exploiting the system performance as well as for simulating
physical phenomena more faithfully and precisely. We have to invest
more time and effort in modernizing such a large-scale HPC application
code whenever a new HPC system becomes available. As the complexity of
HPC system architectures is also increasing today, there is a strong
demand for streamlining HPC application modernization. The
International Workshop on Large-scale HPC Application Modernization
offers an opportunity to share practices and experiences of
modernizing practical HPC application codes, and also discuss ideas
and future directions for supporting the modernization. In particular,
we will focus on the following topics of interest, but not limited to:
Programming models, languages and frameworks for facilitating HPC
software evolution and refactoring.
Algorithms and implementation methodologies for future-generation
computing systems, including manycores and accelerators (GPUs, Xeon
Phi, etc).
Automatic performance tuning techniques, runtime systems and
domain-specific languages for hiding the complexity of underlying
system architectures.
Practices and experiences on porting of legacy applications and libraries.

The conference and workshop proceedings will be published by
Conference Publishing Service and submitted to IEEE Xplore and CSDL
digital libraries. Also, they are submitted for indexing through
INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISI, and other indexing services.

[Special Issue]

main symposium and workshops in
- IEICE Transactions on Information and Systems
- Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience
