Call for Papers

ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research spanning computer architecture and hardware, programming languages and compilers, operating systems and networking.

ASPLOS 2023 will be moving to three submission deadlines. Multiple deadlines are meant to encourage authors to submit their papers when ready and to facilitate the selection of some papers for revision. Rejected papers cannot be submitted to a subsequent ASPLOS 2023 deadline. Additional details about the change in review process can be found here.

 Key dates:

Registration deadlineSubmission deadlineNotification
Spring cycleMarch 24, 2022March 31, 2022June 16, 2022
Summer cycleJune 30, 2022July 7, 2022Sept 22, 2022
Fall cycleOct 13, 2022Oct 20, 2022Jan 19, 2023

All deadlines will be at 6pm EDT (10pm UTC).

Papers given a “revise and resubmit” decision from the Spring and Summer submission cycles will have deadlines of July 28, 2022 and Nov 3, 2022, respectively to allow authors additional time to revise.  “Revise and resubmit” papers will be given clear and actionable feedback for their revision; the same reviewers will be assigned to the revision to see if revision requirements were met. If revision requirements are satisfactorily met, the paper will be accepted. Papers submitted to the Fall cycle will not have the option of a “revise and resubmit” decision.

Update for the Summer cycle

The summer submission cycle for ASPLOS 2023 will not require extended abstracts.  Authors will only be required to submit a traditional full-page paper.

Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2023 invites papers on ground-breaking research at the intersection of the ASPLOS disciplines: architecture, programming languages, operating systems, and related areas. Non-traditional topics are especially encouraged. The importance of cross-cutting research continues to grow as we grapple with the end of Dennard scaling, the explosion of big data, scales ranging from ultra-low power wearable devices to exascale parallel and cloud computers, the need for sustainability, and increasingly human-centered applications. ASPLOS embraces systems research that directly target new problems in innovative ways. The research may target diverse goals, such as performance, energy and thermal efficiency, resiliency, security, sustainability, applicability to future technologies, applications, and environments. The review process will be sensitive to the challenges of multidisciplinary work in emerging areas.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Existing and emerging platforms at all scales (embedded to cloud)
  • Internet services, cloud computing, and datacenters
  • Multicore architectures and systems
  • Heterogeneous architectures and accelerators
  • Systems for enabling parallelism at extreme scale
  • Programming models, languages, and compilation for all platforms
  • Managing, storing, and computing on big data
  • Virtualization and virtualized systems
  • Memory and storage technologies and architectures
  • Power, energy, and thermal management
  • Security, reliability, and availability
  • Verification and testing, and their impact on design
  • Support for approximations and approximate computing
  • Non-traditional computing systems, including emerging devices
