CALL FOR PAPERS
ADAPT: 4th International Workshop on Adaptive Self-tuning Computing Systems
January 22nd, 2014, Vienna, Austria (co-located with HiPEAC 2014)
Special focus on experimental reproducibility!
Computing systems are rapidly evolving into heterogeneous machines featuring many processor cores. This leads to a tremendous complexity with an unprecedented number of available design and optimisation choices for architectures, applications, compilers and run-time systems. Using outdated, non-adaptive technology results in an enormous waste of expensive computing resources and energy, while slowing down time to market.
Ideally, such systems should be able to automatically adjust their behaviour to multi-objective usage scenarios at all levels (hardware and software) based on empirical, dynamic, iterative, statistical, collective, bio-inspired, model-driven, agent-based, machine learning and alternative techniques while fully utilising available resources.
The 4th International Workshop on Adaptive Self-tuning Computing Systems is an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, developers and application writers to discuss ideas, experience, methodology, applications, practical techniques and tools to improve or change current and future computing systems using self-tuning technology.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Topics of interests include techniques to simplify, automate and standardise the design, programming, optimisation and adaptation of large-scale computing systems for improving multiple objectives such as performance, power consumption, utilisation, reliability and scalability.

==== Paper Submission Guidelines ==== We invite papers in three categories:
- Full papers presenting novel ideas with mature content (6 pages).
- Extended abstract presenting novel ideas with preliminary results and exploratory work including wild & crazy ideas (2 pages).
- Extended abstract of already published work (must be your own) presenting ideas relevant to the ADAPT workshop. There will be no proceedings for this type of submissions.
We particularly welcome papers where experimental results can be validated by the community. If accepted, the final papers should include Appendix with detailed research methodology and references to all used data and tools (should be publicly available by the time of the workshop). Such submissions should include (reproducible) in the title.
