                                              CALL FOR PAPERS

              1st Annual Workshop on Explicitly Parallel Instruction
                    Computing Architectures and Compiler Technology

                              Held in conjunction with MICRO-34

                                            Austin, Texas, USA

                    SUBMISSION DEADLINE: September 28th, 2001
              (extended to October 5th)

The Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing (EPIC) architecture
model has the potential of achieving unparalleled levels of
performance in future computer systems. The EPIC style of
architecture was developed to enable higher levels of
instruction-level parallelism. By allowing the compiler to express
program parallelism and other relevant information directly to the
processor, EPIC architectures can overcome hardware complexity issues
that limit performance in traditional microprocessors. The major
challenge to realizing the full potential of EPIC architectures is
developing strategic compiler technologies that effectively deploy
explicitly defined hardware mechanisms and deliver performance for
both commercial and scientific applications. This one-day workshop
will focus on promising research concepts that enable the EPIC
architecture model.


* Topics of EPIC architectures and compiler technologies or related studies
    focusing on the following:
    - Predicated execution
    - Compiler-directed control speculation
    - Compiler scheduling and optimization techniques for instruction-level
    - EPIC performance monitoring unit feedback for dynamic compilation
    - Tools, compilers, and infrastructure for EPIC architectures
    - Data and value speculation
    - Hardware features to support instruction-level parallelism
    - Compiler controlled memory prefetching and memory hierarchy management
    - Support for software pipelining
    - Effects of architectural features on workload behavior
    - Novel architectures and micro-architectures
    - Experimental evaluation of Itanium microprocessors
    - Commercial and scientific workload studies for EPIC models
    - Power and energy aware computing techniques for EPIC machines
    - Performance analysis of EPIC architectures
