The memory system has become increasingly important for today’s high performance computing (HPC) systems. Recent HPC and big data applications require larger capacity and bandwidth, lower latency and energy consumption of the memory system. However, the current DRAM technology is facing technology scaling challenges in terms of memory density and energy efficiency. In large-scale computer systems such as warehouse-scale computers, memory has become the largest portion of total cost of ownership (TCO). Today, the emergence of new non-volatile memory technologies (NVM), such as Phase-Change RAM (PCRAM), Magneto resistive RAM (MRAM) and Resistive RAM (RRAM), have drawn significant attentions in the design of memory systems because they promise persistency, byte-addressability, high density and DRAM-like performance. NVM is expected to be a substitute to DRAM in the future. On the other hand, 3D-stacked DRAM such as High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) achieves high bandwidth and power-efficiency in a substantially smaller form factor than traditional DDR technologies. Those new memory technologies tend to significantly change the landscape of memory systems.

This workshop will provide a high-quality forum for scientists and researchers to showcase their interesting ideas and latest research findings in this rapidly changing field. We will discuss the next generation of memory architectures and systems using new emerging technologies. Authors are invited to submit papers on all aspects of emerging memory technology based computing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
– Hybrid memory architectures and systems.
– Emerging memory technology based cache, and memory architecture.
– Impact of emerging memory technology on computer architecture.
– Impact of emerging memory technology on system software.
– New programming models for emerging memory technologies.
– Emerging memory technology based energy saving technologies.
– Emerging memory technology based reconfigurable architectures.
– Emerging memory technology-inspired hardware/software co-design.
– In-memory computing architecture.
– Applications on emerging memory architectures.
– Big data and databases on emerging memory architectures.
– Benchmarks and experience studies.
– Large-scale deployment of emerging memory systems.

The submission site is at HotCRP. Please use the Springer template.
