First Workshop on Resource Awareness and Application Autotuning in Adaptive and Heterogeneous Computing (ReS4AnT)


First Workshop on Resource Awareness and Application Autotuning
in Adaptive and Heterogeneous Computing (ReS4AnT)

Co-located with the
Design, Automation & Test in Europe Conference & Exhibition (DATE)
March 18, 2016, Dresden, Germany


Adaptive and heterogeneous computing platforms are gaining
interest for applications spanning from embedded to high
performance computing due to their promising power/performance
ratio. However, sharing hardware resources creates some
challenges with respect to predictable execution time and
power consumption. In traditional real-time approaches,
resource usage is over dimensioned to achieve worst case
guarantees, whereas in best effort approaches, predictability
remains a challenge. The goal of the workshop is to bring
together researchers from the area of resource awareness and
application autotuning, to discuss their various approaches,
their commonalities and differences, to foster collaboration
between them and to share their most recent research
achievements with the international research community.

– Architectures: on architectural mechanism for adaptive
and heterogeneous computing.
– Resource awareness: on resource management and awareness
for parallel computing.
– Autotuning:  on application autotuning mechanisms for
parallel computing.
– Applications: on the analysis, development, modification
and integration of applications in the embedded and high
performance computing domains.

General Co-Chairs:
Cristina Silvano, Politecnico di Milano, Italy
Walter Stechele, TU Munich, Germany
Stephan Wong, TU Delft, The Netherlands
Poster Session Chair:
Jeronimo Castrillon, TU Dresden, Germany
Panel Session Chair:
Michael Huebner, Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum, Germany
Web Chair:
Amir H. Ashouri, Politecnico di Milano, Italy

We invite posters on the aforementioned topics of interest.
In addition to the poster sessions, there will be a short
presentation slot for introducing the posters during the
workshop. Poster submission should be a 2-page double-column
extended abstract including figures. The submission should
clearly specify the relation to the topics addressed in the
workshop. A workshop digest based upon the extended abstract
will be distributed to all participants of the workshop. Note
that the posters presented at the DATE workshops are NOT
disseminated through the official DATE proceedings or through
any other formal channels, such as, for example, the
IEEExplore or the ACM Digital Library. Posters will be
published online at the Workshop web site.


Posters submission deadline: January 15, 2016.
Notification of acceptance: February 15, 2016.
Posters submission web site will be opened from
December 1, 2015 and linked from the Workshop web site.
