    Workshop on Architectures and Languages for Throughput Applications

    ALTA 2008

    Held in conjunction with the
    2008 International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA-35)

    Sunday June 22nd, Beijing, China

    Submitted papers will be considered to be published on one or more
    special issues of journals or newsletters highlighting the "Best of
    ISCA 2008 Workshops."

    Workshop Theme

    Throughput-oriented applications are attracting broader interest
    because of the proliferation of multi- and many-core CPUs and GPUs.
    The reasons are many-fold. Increasing software-exposed parallelism is
    necessitated by power-constrained design. Moreover, the emphasis on
    visual quality in entertainment-oriented applications is driving
    demand on client platforms. Finally, the pre-existing demands for
    compute cycles in high-performance computing is challenged by the
    changing programming and optimization landscape found in highly
    integrated multi-core devices.

    This workshop seeks an interdisciplinary set of commercial and
    academic researchers and practitioners working at the frontiers of
    throughput oriented programming models, applications, and
    architectures. These include, but are not limited to:

    Topics of Interest

    * Multi-core and many-core CPU and GPU architecture
    * Proposed architectural enhancements for throughput computing
    * Power considerations for throughput-oriented designs
    * Data-parallel or collection-oriented programming models
    * GPU programming models
    * Domain specific languages
    * Algorithmic techniques for implementing key building blocks for
    throughput computing algorithms
    * Selected application case studies on throughput computing
    architectures, including (but not limited to):
    -- Gaming/Graphics
    -- Computational finance
    -- Seismic processing
    -- Image/Video/Signal processing
    -- Machine learning
    -- Web search and services

    The workshop will combine a set of peer-reviewed submissions and
    invited talks.

    Submission of contributions

    Interested authors are expected to submit a full paper (not to exceed
    8 pages), following the formatting instructions at - Formatting files/

    Please e-mail submissions to . Copies of
    papers will be made available at the workshop.

    Important Dates

    Paper submission deadline: April 4, 2008
