Call for Papers:

CFW 2024 : 3rd Annual Compiler Frontiers Workshop Submission

Final Submission Deadline
March 1, 2024

3rd Annual Compiler Frontiers Workshop
https://www.computingfrontiers.org/2024/
Held in Ischia (Italy), in conjunction with the 21st ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers (https://www.computingfrontiers.org/2024/)

As architectures grow in complexity and power/performance requirements evolve far beyond what traditional computing facilities offer, advances in compiler technology are paramount to enable the construction of performant, power-efficient, and resilient application payloads. In this era of expanding architectural possibilities, this workshop seeks new research in compilers tailored for traditional architectures but also for the unique challenges posed by physical computing systems that perform computations based on their analog behavior. In addition to compiler technologies enabling new features (co-processors, accelerated instructions, tensor memory architecture engines, etc.) in traditional architectures (CPUs, GPUs, CGRAs, FPGAs), this year, in CFW, we seek to explore new compilation techniques for the intricacies inherent in emerging computing paradigms, such as analog computing, neuromorphic computing, near and in-memory processing, chemical reaction networks, among others, expanding the discussion to creative solutions when compiling for physical computing systems. This workshop serves as a gathering ground for researchers and experts from both industry and academia, fostering the presentation and exploration of the latest advances in Compilers for Computing Frontiers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Compiler extensions for HPC, Data Analytics, IoT, Cloud, and Edge computing
Compiler design for low-power environments
Compiler design for extreme parallelism
Compiler optimizations and optimization frameworks
Compiler optimizations for high-level abstractions
Extensions to support analog computing
Extensions to support neuromorphic computing
Extensions to support computation with chemical reaction networks (CRNs)
Extensions for emerging memory technologies (near and in-memory computing)
Extensions to existing compiler frameworks: CLANG, GCC, MLIR, LLVM, etc.
Template meta-programming constructs
Domain-specific language compilers
Compiler re-targeting for non-traditional/special-purpose architectures
Compiler extensions for AI/ML architectures
Application of ML to compiler technologies
Compiler design for hardware description languages
Compiler extensions for High-Level Synthesis tools targeting FPGAs or ASICs
Compiler infrastructure to support new features in traditional architectures (CPUs, GPUs, CGRAs, FPGAs, etc.)

Important Dates
Paper submissions due: March 1st, 2024 AOE (extended)
Notifications of acceptance: March 15th, 2024
Camera-ready papers due: March 22nd, 2024 AOE
Workshop date: Held in conjunction with the CF2024 conference (May 7th – 9th, 2024)

Submission Guidelines
This year, we are accepting two types of submissions: Full Papers and Extended Abstracts.

Full Papers: Authors are encouraged to submit full papers of up to 6 pages, excluding references, describing novel work. Authors may buy up to two (2) extra pages for accepted regular papers.

Extended Abstracts: Authors are welcome to submit short papers describing early-stage, in-progress, and/or exploratory work to elicit feedback, discover collaboration opportunities, and spark discussion. Extended abstracts should be up to 2 pages, including references. Please, during submission, prefix your title with the string “EA:” to indicate that you are submitting an extended abstract.

Important: All accepted papers will be published in the workshop section of the Computing Frontiers proceedings. Moreover, at least one author must register and present the paper at the workshop in person.

All paper submissions must adhere to the official ACM conference format. As the review process is double-blind, removal of all identifying information from paper submissions is required (i.e., cite own work in third person). Papers not conforming to the above submission policies on formatting, page limits, and the removal of identifying information will be automatically rejected. Authors are strongly advised to submit their papers with the final list of authors, as changes may not be feasible later.
