21th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming
Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS 2016)

Atlanta, GA, USA
Apr 2-6, 2016
Abstracts Due: Aug 5, 2015
Full Papers Due: Aug 12, 2015

ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research
spanning computer architecture and hardware, programming languages and
compilers, operating systems and networking, as well as applications
and user interfaces. The 2016 conference will be held in Atlanta,
Georgia, “capital of the new south”, home to the 1996 Summer Olympic
Games, with world-class restaurants and a myriad of cultural
attractions to a hip nightlife and sporting events galore.

Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2016 invites papers on ground-breaking
research at the intersection of at least two ASPLOS disciplines:
architecture, programming languages, operating systems, and related
areas. Non-traditional topics are especially encouraged. The
importance of cross-cutting research continues to grow as we grapple
with the end of Dennard scaling, the explosion of big data, scales
ranging from ultra-low power wearable devices to exascale parallel and
cloud computers, the need for sustainability, and increasingly
human-centered applications. ASPLOS embraces systems research that
directly targets these new problems in innovative ways. The research
may target diverse goals such as performance, energy and thermal
efficiency, resiliency, security, and sustainability. The review
process will be sensitive to the challenges of multidisciplinary work
in emerging areas.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
– Emerging platforms at all scales, from embedded to cloud
– Heterogeneous multicore architectures and accelerators
– Systems for enabling parallelism at an extreme scale
– Non-traditional computing systems
– Systems that address social, educational, and environmental challenges
– Programming models and compilation for existing and emerging platforms
– Managing, storing, and computing on big data
– Virtualization
– Memory and storage technologies and architectures
– Power, energy, and thermal management
– Security, reliability, and availability
– Verification and testing, and their impact on design

Papers should be submitted for double-blind review following the
submission guidelines available at the conference website.
