* New in 2022: Special Session on Efficiency-Driven Computing

To advance the frontier in power- and energy-efficient computing,
HEART 2022 will organize a special session dedicated to works that can
quantitatively demonstrate software, hardware and/or architectural
techniques that improve the efficiency of computer systems by meeting
the following criteria: Given a baseline system B and an accelerated
system A, let perf_A, eff_A, perf_B, eff_B be the performance (higher
is better) and power- or energy-efficiency of A and B respectively,
then this special session seeks submissions that demonstrate:

eff_A > eff_B; and
perf_A >= perf_B x 0.8

Criteria 1 specifies that the overarching evaluation criteria for this
special session are efficiency improvement.  In addition, Criteria 2
specifies that while achieving speedup is usually a desirable feature
for an accelerated system, for the purpose of this special session, if
the authors can demonstrate efficiency improvement in the resulting
system A, then A may be up to 20% slower than B as a tradeoff.

Submission to this special session includes 2 parts:

- An 8-page technical paper describing research contributions.
- A 1-page summary describing quantitatively the measured power and
performance of the target system.

See the conference website for more details.  Submissions to the
special session are single-blinded.  Papers submitted to this special
session will undergo a peer-review process to evaluate their technical
contributions, which must contain at least 30% beyond previously
published work.  An award will be given to the submission that
demonstrates the most increase in efficiency in this session.

*Main Research Track

Following its tradition, HEART 2022 will continue to focus on high
efficiency as a cross-cutting issue and seeks contributions for the
main research track in, but not limited to, the following areas:

** Architectures for Efficient Acceleration

Novel systems/platforms based on FPGA, GPU, and other devices
Heterogeneous processor architectures and systems for high-performance
and/or low-power
Domain-specific architectures

** Design Methods and Tools for Efficient Acceleration

Programming paradigms, languages, and frameworks
High-level synthesis and compilers
Runtime methodologies for heterogeneous systems
Performance evaluation and analysis

** Applications and Systems

Application examples that benefit from efficient acceleration to a great 
Complete systems demonstrating increased energy efficiency and/or 
Comparisons between accelerator technologies

*Submission Guidelines (Format and Anonymity)

Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions as
12-page papers without references to be considered regular papers or
8-page papers without references to be considered special session
papers. HEART2022 adopt a double-blind review process, authors should
not identify themselves, so author names, affiliations, e-mail
addresses, and self-references should be blanked out. All
contributions must be submitted electronically in PDF format according
to the ACM proceedings style.


Each accepted paper MUST have at least one author with a regular
registration for the manuscript to be included and published in the
proceedings. Authors are also expected to present their paper(s) at
the HEART2022 symposium.

*Ph.D. Forum

Ph.D. students working in areas relevant to HEART 2022 are solicited
to submit an extended abstract of up to 4 pages (including references)
comprising a summary of their research findings, work in progress,
and/or planned research—the Ph.D. Forum is intended as a platform for
Ph.D. students to interact with peers and experienced researchers. The
Ph.D. forum will be organized as a virtual poster session and include
a 5 minutes oral introduction by each student. The Ph.D. student
should be the first author; thesis advisors may be coauthors. The
technical program committee will review submissions to ensure quality
and relevance. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend
HEART 2022 and present their posters. The accepted extended abstracts
will also appear in the conference proceedings.
