4th Workshop on
Statistical and Machine learning
to ARchitecture and compilaTion

January 24, 2010, Pisa, Italy

Keynote speaker: Prof. Keith Cooper
Rice University, USA

(co-located with HiPEAC 2010 Conference)

The rapid rate of architectural change and the large diversity of
architecture features has made it increasingly difficult for compiler
writers to keep pace with microprocessor evolution. This problem has
compounded by the introduction of multicores. Thus, compiler writers
have an
intractably complex problem to solve. A similar situation arises in
processor design where new approaches are needed to help computer
make the best use of new underlying technologies and to design systems
adapted to future application domains.

Recent studies have shown the great potential of statistical machine
learning and search strategies for compilation and machine design. The
purpose of this workshop is to help consolidate and advance the state
of the
art in this emerging area of research. The workshop is a forum for the
presentation of recent developments in compiler techniques and machine
design methodologies based on space exploration and statistical
learning approaches with the objective of improving performance,
parallelism, scalability, and adaptability.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Machine Learning, Statistical Approaches, or Search applied to

* Empirical Automatic Performance Tuning
* Iterative Feedback-Directed Compilation
* Self-tuning Programs, Libraries and Language Extensions
* Dynamic Optimization/Split Compilation/Adaptive Execution
* Adaptive Parallelization
* Low-power Optimizations
* Adaptive Virtualization
* Performance Modeling
* Performance Portability
* Adaptive Processor and System Architecture
* Architecture Simulation and Design Space Exploration
* Collective Optimization
* Self-tuning Computing Systems
* Other Topics relevant to Intelligent and Adaptive Compilers/

**** Paper Submission Guidelines ****

Submitted papers should be original and not published or submitted for
publication elsewhere. Papers should use the LNCS format and should be
pages maximum. Manuscript preparation guidelines can be found at the
website (, go to "For Authors"
and then
"Information for LNCS Authors"). Papers must be submitted in the PDF
the workshop submission website.

An informal collection of the papers to be presented will be
distributed at
the workshop. All accepted papers will appear on the workshop website.
