Call for Papers (PDF version)
ASPLOS is a forum for multidisciplinary research
that spans the boundaries of
architecture, compilers, languages, operating systems, networking, and
applications. The ASPLOS conference series
has captured some of the major computer systems innovations of the past
two decades (e.g., RISC and VLIW
processors, small and large-scale multiprocessors, clusters, optimizing
compilers, network-storage systems, and
system-level and language-level virtualization).
Computer systems today face great challenges and
opportunities, due to the end of single-processor
performance scaling, new demands imposed by mobile and petascale
computing, and the increasing need for energy
efficiency across the computing spectrum. Multidisciplinary research is
increasingly important as boundaries
between hardware/software and local/network computing blur, as the form
and capabilities of computing devices
becomes ever more varied, and as users and applications continue to
expand. In addition to the main program, this
ASPLOS will offer tutorials and workshops on a variety of topical
Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2011 will focus on
research, with an emphasis on the
interplay of two or more of the major focus areas. A hardware or
architecture component is not a necessary
requirement for publication in ASPLOS: papers in both software and
hardware areas are welcome. The program
committee especially encourages research papers in non-traditional
topics. Topics of interest include, but are not
- The interaction of operating systems,
compilers, programming languages, and architectures.
- Multidisciplinary research issues for multicore
- Multidisciplinary research issues for new
platforms from sensor networks to petascale systems.
- Multidisciplinary research issues raised by
Internet services and cloud computing.
- Multidisciplinary research issues for graphics
and media processing.
- Power and energy management in current and
future computer systems.
- Network security, reliability, embedded
computation and embedded storage.
- Case studies of architecture or software design
in novel experimental systems.
- Security, reliability and availability for
current and future computer systems.
- Novel systems solutions that address social,
educational, and environmental challenges.
- Non-traditional computing models, including
molecular, biological, and quantum computing.
