3rd Workshop on Systems for Future Multi-core Architectures (SFMA’13)
co-located with EuroSys 2013 in Prague
Sunday, April 14, 2013

Future multi-core architectures will present a variety of challenges for system
developers, such as non-cache-coherent memory, heterogeneous processing cores
and the exploitation of novel architectural features. To achieve high
performance on these platforms, application developers will need to exploit
parallelism to a much greater extent than before. The SFMA’13 workshop is a
forum for researchers in the operating systems, language runtime, virtual
machine and architecture communities to present and discuss their experiences
with the new generation of highly-parallel hardware. Topics of interest include
(but are not limited to):

* novel multi-core operating system designs,
* runtime systems and programming environments for future hardware,
* OS or runtime support for heterogeneous processing cores,
* scheduling on many-core architectures,
* energy efficiency, fault tolerance and resource management on future
multi-core architectures,
* performance evaluation of potential future hardware,
* architectural support for systems-level software, and
* case studies of system-level software design for current or future
multi-core hardware.

SFMA’13 will be the third iteration of this workshop, co-located with EuroSys
2013 in Prague. The first iteration was held at EuroSys 2011 in Salzburg with
approximately 50 attendees. The second iteration was held at EuroSys 2012 in
Bern, with approximately 40 attendees. Websites, including proceedings, for
previous SFMAs are here:

* SFMA’11: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/tharris/sfma/
* SFMA’12: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/events/sfma12/

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished work that exposes a new
problem, advocates a specific solution, or reports on actual experience. Papers
are limited to 6 pages (including figures, tables and references).

Final papers will be made available to participants electronically at the
meeting, but to facilitate resubmission to more formal venues, no archival
proceedings will be published, and papers will not be sent to the ACM Digital
Library. Authors will be given the option of having their final paper accessible
from the workshop website.
