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

Like its predecessors, ASPLOS 2022 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

ASPLOS’22 Call for Research Artifacts

ASPLOS’22 will include an artifact evaluation process (similar to ASPLOS’20’21) to promote reproducibility of experimental results and to encourage authors to provide useful artifacts. Authors of accepted papers are invited to submit their supporting materials to the Artifact Evaluation process based on the ACM Artifact Review and Badging policy.

The Artifact Evaluation process is run by a separate committee whose task is to assess how the artifacts support the work described in the papers. This submission is voluntary and will not influence the final decision regarding the papers. Please note that the artifact submission deadline is shortly after notification of the paper’s acceptance–authors should prepare in advance to ensure time for artifact assembly and documentation. Additional information is available on the ASPLOS’22 AE web page.

Important dates:
