Visible to the public ADAPT 2015


Computing systems are rapidly evolving into heterogeneous machines featuring many processor cores. This leads to a tremendous complexity with an unprecedented number of available design and optimization choices for architectures, applications, compilers and run-time systems. Using outdated, non-adaptive technology results in an enormous waste of expensive computing resources and energy, while slowing down time to market.

The 5th International Workshop on Adaptive Self-tuning Computing Systems is an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, developers and application writers to discuss ideas, experience, methodology, applications, compilers, hardware, practical techniques and tools that can improve or change existing and future computing systems using self-tuning technology. Such systems should be able to automatically adjust their behavior at all levels (hardware and software) and improve various characteristics including execution time, energy usage, reliability, size and costs based on empirical, dynamic, iterative, auto-tuning, statistical, collective, bio-inspired, machine learning and alternative techniques while fully utilizing available resources.

Paper Submission Guidelines

We invite papers in three categories:

  • T1: Unpublished Papers presenting novel unpublished ideas (did not appear in any proceedings). Depending on the maturity of the work, these papers should be between 2 and 6 pages long (excluding bibliography). In addition to mature ideas, preliminary and exploratory work is also welcome in this category, including wild & crazy ideas.
  • T2: Already Published Work (must be your own) presenting ideas relevant to the ADAPT workshop. These papers should be up to 2 pages long (excluding bibliography) summarising the contribution of the original work (including link to it).
  • T3: Software/Hardware Demonstration (must be your own) presenting publicly available and adaptive software and hardware. Description should be up to 6 pages long summarizing the tool, demonstration, and relevance to the workshop.

Submissions should be in PDF formatted with double column/single-spacing, using 10pt fonts and printable on US letter or A4 sized paper. Accepted papers will be published online on the conference website and it will not prevent later publication of extended papers. Depending on the author wish, we may consider arranging ACM digital library proceedings or a special journal issue.

Paper submission website:

We particularly welcome papers where experimental results can be
validated by the community. If accepted, the final papers should
include Appendix with detailed research methodology and
references to all used data and tools (should be publicly
available by the time of the workshop). Such submissions should
include (reproducible) in the title.
