Kool Chips Workshop
Call for Papers
Sunday 10th December, 2000
in conjunction with MICRO33, Monterey, California
Abstract submission deadline: November 7th, 2000
The limits imposed by power consumption are becoming an issue in most areas of computing. The need to limit power consumption is readily apparent in the case of portable and mobile computer platforms — the laptop and the cell phone being the most common examples. But the need to limit power in other computer settings is becoming important too.
This workshop is the third in a series of workshops and tutorials designed to bring together researchers in the area of architecture-power trade-offs and provide a forum for them to discuss their preliminary ideas.
The first of these meetings, the Power-Driven Microarchitecture Workshop was held at ISCA98 in Barcelona, Spain. It helped raise the awareness of the architecture community to concerns about power issues. This workshop was followed by a tutorial, the Cool Chips Tutorial at MICRO32 in Haifa, Israel. It assembled a group of speakers from leading microprocessor companies to give presentations on what they consider to be their critical low power issues now and in the future, and some possible solutions to these problems.
Topics of interest are any subject that addresses power-aware computing and communications.
The focus will be broad and includes on microarchitecture, architecture, operating systems and compilers.
Paper submission guidelines:
Authors are requested to submit an abstracts of four 8.5 x 11 pages or less.
The abstract should contain a title and a contact address.
All submissions must be by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The preferred format is pdf, but postscript is also acceptable if it is viewable by ghostscript.
