MeAOW 2013 - Memory Architecture and Organization Workshop 2013
October 3, 2013
Held during ESWeek 2013 in Montreal, Canada
Paper submission -- Friday, Aug 2nd, 2013
Acceptance Notification -- Friday, Aug 16th, 2013
Final version -- Friday, Aug 31st, 2013
Workshop -- Thursday, Oct 3rd, 2013
Workshop Submission Instructions
We seek contributions of no more than 6 pages, using the same template for full ACM conference papers. Optionally, prospective authors may submit an extended abstract that clearly positions the proposed workshop contributions with respect to the goals of the workshop. Submissions must introduce novel material, not necessarily fully developed but with innovative and stimulating ideas, concepts and realizations. At least one representative for each accepted paper will need to be registered for the workshop and present in person her/his work. Position papers are also acceptable, provided they present/propose innovative approaches to the solution of the problem or requirements coming from the analysis of case studies and/or practical experience.
Workshop Background and Goals
Memory technologies are evolving rapidly, resulting in many new storage opportunities that demand novel memory architectures, organizations and management strategies to effectively leverage their unique features. Newer memories, such as Phase Changing Memory (PCM), STT-RAM, Memristor, embedded-RAM, etc., have their unique advantages as well as disadvantages. Often they exhibit read and write asymmetry, where a write operation may incur a large latency and consume significantly more energy than a read operation. The wear-out characteristics, density, ambient operational conditions and other parameters may require novel memory organizations and software/hardware management support to leverage the benefits of these new memory technologies. Thus there is an urgent need to model, analyze, design and evaluate novel memory management techniques at varying abstraction levels for these novel memories. MeAOW aims to bring together researchers for discussion and advancement of novel memory architectures, organizations and management.
List of Topics for MeAOW 2013:
- Novel memory architecture and design
- Energy efficient memory architecture and management
- Non-volatile Memory(NVM) / Storage Class Memory(SLM) architecture and management
- Flash Memory management
- Operating System and Embedded software support for Memory Management
- Compilation techniques for non-volatile memory
- Hardware-Software Codesign for novel memory architectures
MEAOW is designed to be an interactive workshop at ESWeek covering these novel memory topics: the event is designed to foster interaction and presentation of early results, new ideas and speculative directions. Thus workshop will combine a number of invited talks from researchers in academia, technologists from industry, case studies on the use of novel memories, as well as talks selected from submission to the workshop. Participating authors are invited to submit contributions of no more than 6 pages that will be included in an informal workshop digest distributed to all attendees registered for MeAOW 2013. The workshop organizers will also consider invited selecting papers for a special issue of an ACM or IEEE journal.
