With the rapid increase in the complexity and diversity of
environments, from embedded systems and multicore processors to grid
systems, development of software that can fully exploit the potential
performance of the hardware has become a difficult and time-consuming
task. As a means of overcoming this difficulty, automatic
tuning technology to enable the software to self-adapt to
the computing environments has recently aroused much interest.
Although there are several successful examples of automatic tuning,
such as the ATLAS library (for basic linear algebra
calculations) and the BeBOP project, this technology is still in its
infancy. To further improve its effectiveness and expand its
applicability, cooperation among researchers in various fields such as
computer science, software engineering, mathematics and statistics is
The iWAPT2007 is the second of a series of
that focuses on automatic tuning technology. The goal of this
workshop is to provide opportunities for researchers and practitioners
in all fields related to automatic performance tuning to exchange ideas
and experiences. Papers reporting original ideas and
results are solicited. Invited talks by leading researchers are also
- Performance modeling and automatic tuning of, for, and
- Numerical algorithms, libraries and systems,
- Parallel, distributed and networked processing grids,
- Scientific and engineering applications,
- Computer graphics, database systems and robotics,
- Precision, stability, memory consumption and low-power systems,
- Real-time, fault tolerant and dependable processing,
- Embedded systems, GPU, accelerators, and performance of emerging
- Context-aware computing,
- Autonomic computing for high performance applications.
- Performance evaluation and modeling, prediction
benchmarking and performance database
- Languages, compilers and programming tools for
automatic performance tuning
- Automatic performance tuning as/for software
- Systems, middleware and libraries for automatic
- Frameworks, mathematics and theories for automatic
- Experimental design and statistics for automatic
- Theory and methods of optimization for automatic
- Multi-objective tuning, tuning under constraints
Submission and Publication Plan (now closed)
- Extended abstracts (10pt, single-column, a maximum of 3,000 words) on a
wide range of automatic performance tuning topics (as listed above) are
All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on merits including
correctness, originality, technical accuracy, quality of presentation,
and relevance to the workshop. Authors should submit the extended
abstract electronically (PDF or PS) to iWAPT2007-sub_at_kata-lab.itc.u-tokyo.ac.jp
(replacing "_at_" by "@" in
address). We are currently planning the publication of after-conference
proceedings from some major publisher
through a second review process after the workshop.
- Poster Submission and Presentation (now closed)
- Abstracts (10pt, single-column, a maximum of 300 words, one A4-page)
on a wide range of automatic performance tuning topics (as listed
above) are welcome.
The manuscripts should include the following:
Submissions will be reviewed by the committee and evaluated in terms
of interest to the audience. If accepted, the abstract as it is will
be used as a camera-ready manuscript for inclusion in the conference
proceedings. Authors should submit the abstract electronically (in
PDF or PS format) to iWAPT2007-sub_at_kata-lab.itc.u-tokyo.ac.jp
(replacing "_at_" by "@" in the email address).
- Title of the poster.
- Names, affiliations, and contact information of the authors, with one identified as the primary contact.
- Detailed description of the poster and the references.
The authors are responsible for the printing of display material.
The poster board size is 110cm width by 170cm height. A table for PC
demonstration with 100V electricity and wireless LAN can be provided
