Call for Papers - INTERACT-15: 15th Workshop on Interaction between Compilers and Computer Architectures


Feb 12th, 2011, San Antonio, Texas, USA, Held in conjunction with HPCA 2011

Advance Program



Effective compilers allow more efficient execution of applications on a given computer architecture.  Conversely, well-conceived architectural features can support more effective compiler optimization techniques.  Good interaction between compilers and computer architectures is key to successful design of highly efficient and effective computer systems.  This workshop is to promote new ideas and present recent developments in compiler techniques and computer architectures whose synergy enhances both capabilities and efficiency.  Papers are solicited on any aspect of interaction between compilers and architectures in the design of microprocessors, multiprocessors, embedded processing systems, and parallel processing systems.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

·          Processor reliability enhancement

·          Improved timing analysis and predictability

·          Secure, dependable computing

·          Managed and unmanaged run-time support

·          Dynamic compilation and optimization

·          Task synchronization and scheduling

·          System virtualization

·          Efficient I/O support

·          Parallelism enhancement and exploitation

·          Memory, cache, and register management

·          Multi-core software and compilation

·          Code optimization and generation

·          Low power architecture and software

·          Debugging, verification, and validation


The program will feature a keynote speaker and technical paper sessions comprising approximately ten papers.

Schedule and Submission Procedure:


The program committee invites authors to submit up to 5000 words, in ACM Conference format, up to 8 pages of manuscript, describing original, unpublished recent results related to the workshop theme. Submission must be in pdf format and emailed to The submission should include the contact author's email address on the front page.  Accepted papers will be archived in the ACM digital library.
