History and Impact
David Kaeli (Northeastern) and John Cavazos (Delaware) very
successfully organized the previous versions of this GPGPU workshop,
which was first held in 2007 at Northeastern University. In 2008, the
workshop was held with ASPLOS 2008. This trend continued and this
GPGPU workshop was held with ASPLOS for the next 6 years. From 2015 to
2018, GPGPU workshop was co-located with PPoPP. GPGPU 2019 workshop
returns to ASPLOS. The average citation count (as per Google Scholar),
for a GPGPU workshop paper, is currently 37.5, where there have been 8
influential papers with 100+ citations.

ASPLOS is the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research spanning computer architecture and hardware, programming languages and compilers, operating systems and networking. ASPLOS 2019 will be held in Providence, Rhode Island, a city rich in colonial period neighborhoods, interesting architecture, and home to Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2019 invites papers on ground-breaking research at the intersection of at least two 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 targets these new problems in innovative ways. The research may target diverse goals, such as performance, energy and thermal efficiency, resiliency, security, and sustainability. 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, from embedded to cloud
      • Internet services, cloud computing, and datacenters
      • Multicore architectures and systems
      • Heterogeneous architectures and accelerators
      • Systems for enabling parallelism at an 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

ACM Student Research Competition

Important Dates

Abstract submission: 11:59pm PST Friday, December 14, 2018.  

(NEW:  Extended deadline:  11 :59pm PST Friday, December 21, 2018)

Acceptance notification: 11:59pm PST Friday, Feb 8, 2019.

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


The 24th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS) invites participation in the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC). Sponsored by ACM and Microsoft Research, the SRC is a forum for undergraduates and graduate students to share their research results, exchange ideas, and improve their communication skills while competing for prizes. Students accepted to participate in the SRC are entitled to a travel grant (up to $500) to help cover travel expenses. The top 3 undergraduate and graduate winners will receive all of the following prizes:

1. Monetary prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively.

2. An award medal (gold, silver or bronze) and a one-year complimentary ACM membership with a subscription to ACM’s Digital Library.

3. The names of the winners and their placement will be posted on the ACM SRC web site.

4. In addition, the first place winner in each category (undergraduate, graduate) will receive an invitation to participate in the SRC Grand Finals, an on-line round of competitions among the first place winners of individual conference-hosted SRCs. The top three graduate and undergraduate Grand Finalists will receive an additional $500, $300, and $200, respectively, along with Grand Finalist medals (gold, silver, bronze). Grand Finalists and their advisors will be invited to the Annual ACM Awards Banquet for an all-expenses-paid trip, where they will be recognized for their accomplishments, along with other prestigious ACM award winners, including the winner of the Turing Award.

The SRC consists of two rounds: a poster session and a presentation session. A panel of judges will select a number of finalists from the poster session, who will be invited to the presentation session at ASPLOS 2019 and compete for the prizes. The evaluation will be concentrated on the quality of both visual and oral presentation, the research methods, and the significance of contribution. You can find more information on the ACM Student Research Competition site.


      A participant in the SRC must meet all following conditions:

    • The participant must submit an up to 800-word abstract outlining the content of a poster that is going to be presented during the competition.

    • It should describe the research problem, motivation and background, techniques and results, and the prospect for clearly and concisely conveying the work in a poster format.

    • It should state the novelty and contributions of the work explicitly.

    • The submission deadline is December 21th, 2018 at 23:59 PST.

    • The abstract must have not appeared before. Novelty is one of the criteria for selection.

    • The abstract and the poster must be authored solely by the participant.

    • The participant can be from anywhere in the world, but must be an ACM student member, and must maintain an undergraduate or graduate student status as of December 21th, 2018.

    • In your submission, please indicate whether you are an undergraduate or a graduate student.

    • You may join ACM prior to entering. Basic student membership is $19 per year or less

  • Team projects will be accepted from Undergraduates. One person should be designated by the team to make the oral presentation. Only individual research is accepted from Graduate (Masters or Ph.D. program) students: group research projects will not be considered. However, if an individual is part of a group research project and wants to participate in an SRC, they can only present their part of the research. Only they will receive the travel stipend and monetary award (should they win).

Call for WACI

ASPLOS 2019 “Wild and Crazy Ideas” (WACI) is seeking submissions on forward-looking, visionary, and currently under-represented research topics that fall under the ASPLOS umbrella.  Submissions should strive to make ASPLOS attendees think about things that our community is not, but should be thinking about today; a submission could identify and address an emerging area or a long-standing open question that needs another look.  As part of ASPLOS’s interdisciplinary culture, WACI continues to have a strong preference for work that cuts across the traditional boundaries of Programming Languages, Operating Systems, and Computer Architecture research. If you are unsure whether a topic relates to WACI, contact the organizers by email.

A WACI submission should be an earnest investigation into an important research topic area and we are not inviting comedy submissions, as have featured prominently in some past incarnations of WACI.

Submission instructions:

Your submission should be a 2-page extended abstract in the sigplanconf format. You may alternatively submit a 1-page extended abstract supplemented by a link to a Youtube video up to two minutes in length.

For either submission format, if accepted for inclusion in the WACI program, an author of your submission must be able to attend the conference and be prepared to give a 6-minute presentation.

Submit your paper via HotCRP at  The deadline for submissions is 5pm PST on Friday February 15th.

24th ACM International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems
Providence, RI, U.S.A, April 13-17, 2019

This document provides instructions for submitting papers to the 24th International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS), 2019. In an effort to respect the efforts of reviewers and in the interest of fairness to all prospective authors, we request that all submissions to ASPLOS 2019 follow the formatting and submission rules detailed below. Submissions that violate these instructions may not be reviewed, at the discretion of the program chair, in order to maintain a review process that is fair to all potential authors. An example submission (formatted using the ASPLOS’19 submission format) that contains the submission and formatting guidelines can be downloaded from here: Sample PDF. The content of the document mirrors the submission instructions on this page.

Submission Site:

Please follow this link to submit your paper.
Abstract/paper registration deadline:
Jul 31, 2018 (4:59:59pm US eastern time)

Full paper submission deadline:
Aug 7, 2018 (4:59:59pm US eastern time)


  • Paper must be submitted in printable PDF format.
  • Text must be in a minimum 10pt (not 9pt) font.
  • Papers must be submitted in printable PDF format and should contain a maximum of 11 pages of single-spaced two-column text, including any appendixes, but not including references.
  • No page limit for references.
  • Each reference must specify all authors (no et al.).
  • Authors of all accepted papers will be required to prepare a summary video (in lieu of a lightning talk) and a poster in addition to the regular conference talk.
  • Proceedings will appear in the ACM digital library up to two weeks before the conference.

Paper Evaluation Objectives:

The committee will make every effort to judge each submitted paper on its own merits. There will be no target acceptance rate. We expect to accept a wide range of papers with appropriate expectations for evaluation — while papers that build on significant past work with strong evaluations are valuable, papers that open new areas with less rigorous evaluation are equally welcome and especially encouraged. Given the wide range of topics covered by ASPLOS, every effort will be made to find expert reviewers.

Paper Preparation Instructions

Paper Formatting

Papers must be submitted in printable PDF format and should contain a maximum of 11 pages of single-spaced two-column text, including any appendixes, but not including references. You may include any number of pages for references, but see below for more instructions. If you are using LATEX to typeset your paper, then we suggest that you use the template here:LATEX Template. (This sample PDF was prepared with that template.) If you are using a different software package to typeset your paper, then please adhere to the guidelines given in Table 1.

One exception is that authors may use the SIGPLAN style/class file here, but only with the 10pt body font option (9pt will be rejected) and modified as needed for the requirements of the references section below. This is marginally different from the specified template, but will be accepted due to its widespread use.

Please ensure that you include page numbers with your submission. This makes it easier for the reviewers to refer to different parts of your paper when they provide comments. Please ensure that your submission has a banner at the top of the title page, similar to this one, which contains the submission number and the notice of confidentiality. If using the template, just replace XXX with your submission number.

Table 1: Formatting guidelines for submission.

Author List. Reviewing will be double blind; therefore, please do not include any author names on any submitted documents except in the space provided on the submission form. You must also ensure that the metadata included in the PDF does not give away the authors. If you are improving upon your prior work, refer to your prior work in the third person and include a full citation for the work in the bibliography. For example, if you are building on your own prior work in the papers [2, 3, 4], you would say something like: “While the authors of [2, 3, 4] did X, Y, and Z, this paper additionally does W, and is therefore much better.” Do NOT omit or anonymize references for blind review. There is one exception to this for your own prior work that appeared in IEEE CAL, workshops without archived proceedings, etc. as discussed later in this document.

Figures and Tables. Ensure that the figures and tables are legible. Please also ensure that you refer to your figures in the main text. Many reviewers print the papers in gray-scale. Therefore, if you use colors for your figures, ensure that the different colors are highly distinguishable in gray-scale.

References. There is no length limit for references. Each reference must explicitly list all authors of the paper. Papers not meeting this requirement will be rejected. Authors of NSF proposals should be familiar with this requirement. Knowing all authors of related work will help find the best reviewers. Since there is no length limit for the number of pages used for references, there is no need to save space here.

Paper Submission Instructions

Declaring Authors

Declare all the authors of the paper upfront. Addition/removal of authors once the paper is accepted will have to be approved by the program chair, since it potentially undermines the goal of eliminating conflicts for reviewer assignment.

Areas and Topics

ASPLOS emphasizes multidisciplinary research. Submissions should ideally emphasize synergy of two or more ASPLOS areas: architecture, programming languages, operating systems, and related areas (broadly interpreted). Authors should indicate these areas on the submission form as well as specific topics covered by the paper for optimal reviewer match. If you are unsure whether your paper falls within the scope of ASPLOS, please check with the program chair – ASPLOS is a broad, multidisciplinary conference and encourages new topics.

Declaring Conflicts of Interest

Authors must register all their conflicts on the paper submission site. Conflicts are needed to ensure appropriate assignment of reviewers. If a paper is found to have an undeclared conflict that causes a problem OR if a paper is found to declare false conflicts in order to abuse or “game” the review system, the paper may be rejected. Please declare a conflict of interest (COI) with the following for any author of your paper:

  • 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, forever (if they might be potential reviewers).
  • People with whom you have collaborated in the last five years, including
    • co-authors of accepted/rejected/pending papers.
    • co-PIs of accepted/rejected/pending grant proposals.
    • funders (decision-makers) of your research grants, and researchers whom you fund.
  • People (including students) who shared your primary institution(s) in the last five years.

“Service” collaborations such as co-authoring a report for a professional organization, serving on a program committee, or co-presenting tutorials, do not themselves create a conflict of interest. Co-authoring a paper that is a compendium of various projects with no true collaboration among the projects does not constitute a conflict among the authors of the different projects. On the other hand, there may be others not covered by the above with whom you believe a COI exists, for example, close personal friends. Please report such COIs; however, you may be asked to justify them. Please be reasonable. For example, you cannot declare a COI with a reviewer just because that reviewer works on topics similar to or related to those in your paper. The PC Chair may contact co-authors to explain a COI whose origin is unclear. We hope to draw most reviewers from the PC and the ERC, but others from the community may also write reviews. Please declare all your conflicts (not just restricted to the PC and ERC). When in doubt, contact the program chair.

Concurrent Submissions and Workshops

By submitting a manuscript to ASPLOS’19, the authors guarantee that the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in a substantially similar form in any conference, journal, or workshop. The only exceptions are (1) workshops without archived proceedings such as in the ACM digital library (or where the authors chose not to have their paper appear in the archived proceedings), or (2) venues, such as IEEE CAL, where there is an explicit policy that such publication does not preclude longer conference submissions. These are not considered prior publications.  Technical reports and papers posted on public social media sites, Web pages, or online repositories, such as, are not considered prior publications either. In these cases, the submitted manuscript may
ignore the posted work to preserve author anonymity.   The authors also guarantee that no paper that contains significant overlap with the contributions of the submitted paper will be under review for any other conference, journal, or workshop during the ASPLOS’19 review period. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection.  As always, if you are in doubt, it is best to contact the program chair(s).  Finally, we also note that the ACM Plagiarism Policy ( covers a range of ethical issues concerning the misrepresentation of other works or one’s own work.

Early Access in the Digital Library

The ASPLOS’19 proceedings will be freely available via the ACM Digital Library for up to two weeks before and up to a month after the conference. Authors must consider any implications of this early disclosure of their work before submitting their papers.


Several ideas in this document and parts of the text have been taken from previous conferences, so we thank their program chairs.  In particular, Ricardo Bianchini and Vivek Sarkar (ASPLOS ’18), John Carter (ASPLOS ’17), Yuanyuan Zhou (ASPLOS ’16), Sandhya Dwarkadas (ASPLOS ’15), Sarita Adve (ASPLOS ’14), Steve Keckler (ISCA ’14), Christos Kozyrakis (MICRO ’13), Margaret Martonosi (ISCA ’13), Onur Mutlu (MICRO ’12), and Michael L. Scott (ASPLOS ’12)
