Call for Papers:
ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary
systems research, spanning hardware, computer
architecture, compilers, languages, operating systems,
networking, and applications. Such work is
increasingly important, as computing faces the end of
single-processor performance scaling, the divergent
trends of mobile and petascale computing, the need for
energy efficiency across the computing spectrum, and
the growing diversity of users and applications.
Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2012 invites submissions
on ground-breaking research at the intersection of
architecture, programming languages, and/or operating
systems. A hardware or architecture component is not
a necessary requirement for publication in ASPLOS, but
papers that emphasize only one of the three main focus
areas are not encouraged. In addition to the main
program, there will be a variety of tutorials and
workshops in areas of current interest. Papers on
non-traditional topics are especially encouraged.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Interactions among architecture, programming languages, and operating systems
- Effective use of multicore systems
- Emerging platforms, from sensor networks to petascale systems
- Internet services, networking, and distributed/cloud computing
- Heterogeneous architectures; graphics and media processing
- Power, energy, and thermal management
- Embedded systems
- Memory and storage technologies and architectures
- Case studies of architecture or software design in novel settings
- Security, reliability and availability
- Novel systems to address social, educational, and environmental challenges
- Non-traditional computing models, including molecular, biological, and quantum computing

Submission site: https://www.softconf.com/c/asplos2012/.
Please make sure that your paper satisfies all the requirements for
content and format below before submission. If you have a question
about any of these issues, please send email to the Program Chair, Michael L. Scott (University of Rochester).
- The paper must be original material that has neither been previously
published nor is currently under review at any archival forum,
including journals, conferences, and workshops with copyrighted
proceedings. You may, however, submit material presented previously
at a workshop without copyrighted proceedings.
- Paper submissions must be anonymous. Reviewing will be double
blind. Author names, affiliations, personal acknowledgments, and
any other hints of identity must not be included in the submitted
paper. At the same time, you should not anonymize your
bibliographic references; instead, cite any of your work in the
third person so that the paper is self-contained. Make a good-faith
effort to conceal any authorship connection between the prior work
- Your submission is limited to twelve (12) 8.5"x11" pages in 9pt
font, in ACM standard conference format. The 12 pages must include
all content, including figures, references, and appendices if
any. The program chair may summarily reject any paper that violates
the submission format or length requirements. Templates for the ACM
format are available for LaTeX, Word and WordPerfect at
- Your paper (including figures) must be formatted in such a way that
it is clear to read when printed on a black and white printer using
either A4 or US Letter-size paper.
- The paper must be submitted in PDF format. We cannot accept any
other format, and we must be able to print the document just as we
receive it. If this presents a hardship, please contact the Program
Chair by email at least one week before the submission deadline. We
strongly suggest that you use only the four widely-used printer
fonts: Times, Helvetica, Courier, and Symbol.
- Please number the pages.
Conflict of Interest
As part of the submission process, you will be asked to identify
potential reviewers who may have a conflict of interest with your
work. Such potential reviewers include:
- Your Ph.D. advisor(s), post-doctoral advisor(s), Ph.D. students, and
post-doctoral advisees, forever.
- Family relations by blood or marriage, or their equivalent (e.g., a
- People with whom you have collaborated in the past five years.
Collaborators include co-authors on an accepted/rejected/pending
research paper, co-PIs on an accepted/rejected/pending grant, those
who fund your research, and researchers whom you fund. "Service"
collaborations, such as writing a report for a professional
organization or serving on a program committee, do not by themselves
create a conflict of interest.
- People who were employed by, or a student at, your primary
institution(s) in the past five years.
- Close personal friends or others with whom you believe a conflict of
interest exists. Send email to the Program Chair if you have a
