New computer applications and programming paradigms are constantly emerging to complement new and improving technology. It is essential to understand the characteristics of today's emerging workloads in order to design efficient architectures for them. This one-day workshop, sponsored by IEEE and the Technical Committee on Computer Architecture, will focus on characterizing and understanding modern computer applications commercial and scientific computing.

Topics of Interest

Papers are solicited in all areas related to characterization of workloads (system and/or application behavior) in a variety of computing environments. Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
