DATA-DREAM22: Data-driven applications for industrial and societal challenges: Problems, methods, and computing platforms
DATE22, Virtual, March 18, 2022

*The workshop will be free of charge for all attendees*

Weather simulations, large-scale traffic coordination, and planning for renewable energy farms are just a few examples of data-driven applications that can lead to sizeable improvements in society. However, these applications can no longer transparently profit from new hardware and system designs. Instead, the high complexity barrier makes it hard for the domain experts writing the next generation of applications to reap the efficiency gains of architectural innovations including heterogeneous distributed systems, emerging memory subsystems, domain-specific accelerators, and reconfigurable hardware.
This workshop seeks to create a discussion forum to holistically address these barriers, harnessing the long-standing expertise of the DATE community on customized systems and system design methodologies, with the goal to democratize computing efficiency. The workshop will bring together experts from different disciplines, across different topic areas of DATE, and even from external communities. These experts include researchers on architectures (from federated down to traditional embedded systems), on runtime systems, on performance modeling, on trade-offs in emerging computing systems, on design methodologies and high-level compilation frameworks, and on experiences deploying and optimizing data-driven, societally-pressing applications to heterogeneous and distributed systems. 

Concrete topic areas are:
- Use cases: Experience reports on challenges, tools, and frameworks to bring use cases to heterogeneous/emerging/reconfigurable systems.
- High-level hardware-software compilation: From domain-expert frameworks (e.g., domain-specific languages (DSLs) or Python frameworks) down to domain-specific architectures.
- Runtime systems: Distributed and shared memory runtime systems for resource management in heterogeneous systems.
- Design methodologies and high-level synthesis for data-driven societally pressing applications.
- FPGA and CGRA acceleration for scientific computing.
