Workshop Overview and Topics:
Operating systems (OS) constitute a major software component and are essential to any computing system. Commercial and server workloads such as online transaction processing, database, file/e-mail servers involve significant OS-level activity. The interactions between OS and emerging architectures (e.g. homogeneous and heterogeneous chip multiprocessors, simultaneous multithreading systems) / technology (e.g. hardware-assisted virtualization) are projected to continuously increase. In addition, the use of a wide variety of virtualization techniques, ranging from application-level virtualization to full-system virtualization, for providing application portability, managing power and performance, providing QoS guarantees and to effectively use the power of emerging architectures, has become prominent.
To optimize system performance/power/reliability/security, it is important to facilitate efficient interaction and cooperation amongst the three constantly evolving components - OS, virtualization and computer architecture.
This workshop focuses on characterizing, modeling, and optimizing the interaction between OS and hardware in the light of emerging architecture paradigms, workloads, and computing technology. Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
Furthermore, the workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers, engineers, and students from academia and industry to discuss their latest research in virtualization, computer architecture and OS, to bring their ideas and research problems to the attention of others, and to obtain valuable and instant feedback from fellow researchers.
