Power consumption has increasingly become important in computer systems. Current designs of processor cores are predicting power figures above 100 Watts. The management of power consumption while simultaneously delivering acceptable levels of performance is becoming a critical task with the proliferation of application domains such as wireless communication and embedded signal processing. In addition, it has become increasingly important to manage power consumption in high-performance, general purpose microarchitectures. It has been forecast that, without significant advances in design for low power, processors of the future will consume hundreds of watts of power. We believe that a synergistic hardware-software approach is required. A lot of attention has been paid to optimizing power at the circuit and gate levels. Recently, power optimizations at the architecture and software (i.e., compiler, operating system, and application) level have begun to receive increasing attention. The purpose of this workshop is to draw together researchers and practitioners concerned with compiler and operating system support for low power for a stimulating exchange of views. Presentations from invited speakers from both the industry and academia will provide insights into emerging issues related to this area of research. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
August 4: Electronic submission due September 2: Notification of authors September 10: Final version of papers due
All submissions will be refereed, and workshop attendees will
receive copies of all accepted papers.
