2nd ANNUAL WORKSHOP ON
PERFORMANCE ISSUES (WMPI 2002)
Held in conjunction with the 29th
International Symposium in
Computer Architecture (ISCA 2002)
May 25, 2002
WMPI is a 1-day workshop that provides a forum for
researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss
advances in computer technology, architecture, software systems, and
algorithms that address the growing disparity between memory and
CPU/network speeds. Hardware and software techniques that address this
performance gap are equally welcome. We are particularly interested in new
ideas. Work in early stages of development is encouraged. The workshop
will also include one or more keynote speakers.
Possible topics for papers include, but are not limited to:
- Processors in memory
- Cache hierarchy organization and coherence
- RAM architecture and technology
- Reconfigurable memory systems
- Intelligent disks
- Bus/interconnect architectures
- Network memory
- Compilation techniques
- Speculation at the instruction or thread levels
- Low-power design of memory hierarchies
- Memory compression
- Operating system memory management
- Hardware and software fault tolerance of memory systems
- Multiprocessing on a single chip
- Software cache coherence
- Virtual memory systems
