ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research
spanning computer architecture and hardware, programming languages
and compilers, and operating systems and networking. The program
covers cross-cutting research spanning mobile systems to data
centers, targeting diverse goals such as performance,
energy efficiency, resiliency, and security.

The conference program (March 3rd-5th) features:

– 49 technical papers
– Two keynotes
– Inside Windows Azure: The Challenges and Opportunities
of a Cloud Operating System by
Brad Calder, Microsoft
– Neuromorphic Processing: A New Frontier in Scaling
Computer Architecture by
Jeff Gehlhaar, Qualcomm
– A debate
– Resolved: Specialized architectures, languages, and
system software should largely supplant general-purpose
alternatives within the next decade
