Call for Tutorials/Workshops: IISWC 2022

Final Submission Deadline
August 16, 2022

IEEE International Symposium on Workload Characterization (IISWC) symposium is dedicated to the understanding and characterization of workloads that run on all types of computing systems. New applications and programming paradigms continue to emerge rapidly as the diversity and performance of computers increase. On one hand, improvements in computing technology are usually based on a solid understanding and analysis of existing workloads. On the other hand, computing workloads evolve and change with advances in microarchitecture, compilers, programming languages, and networking communication technologies. Whether they are smart phones and deeply embedded systems at the low end or massively parallel systems at the high end, the design of future computing machines can be significantly improved if we understand the characteristics of the workloads that are expected to run on them. This symposium, sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and the Technical Committee on Computer Architecture, will focus on characterizing and understanding emerging applications in consumer, commercial and scientific computing.

Tutorials and workshops are an integral part of IISWC-2022. Topics covering simulation tools, benchmark suites, evaluation methodologies for systems (including FPGAs and Quantum Computing), and new application domains (e.g., Cloud performance, Microservices, Virtualization, AI/ML) that may be of interest to the hardware and software community are welcome.

We are soliciting proposals for tutorials and workshops to be held before the main conference. This year, all tutorials and workshops will be in person. Tutorials and Workshops can be in 2-hour, half day and full day formats.

Please send tutorial and workshop proposals to Sundar Iyengar, <> and Nathan Tallent, <>. In your email, please provide:

  1. Session type [Tutorial/Workshop]
  2. Session title/name
  3. List of organizers
  4. A brief abstract of the contents of the session
  5. Duration of the tutorial and workshop session (2hr, half day, or full day)
  6. Potential plan/requirements for virtual organization
