The ARCS series of conferences has over 30 years of tradition in reporting top notch results in computer architecture and operating systems research. This year's special focus was set on adaptivity and adaptive system architectures. We covered a wide spectrum reaching from pre-fabrication adaptation of architectural templates to dynamic run-time adaptation of deployed systems. Like the previous conferences in this series, it continued to be an important forum for computer architecture research.
The proceedings of ARCS 2010 will be published in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). After the conference, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their contributions for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Systems Architecture. Also, a best paper and a best presentation award will be presented at the conference.
The ARCS 2010 technical program addresses the following topics and sessions:
Energy-awareness, green computing.
Computer architecture topics such as multi-cores, memory systems, and parallel computing.
Adaptive system architectures such as reconfigurable systems in hardware and software.
Operating Systems including but not limited to scheduling, memory management, power management, and RTOS.
System aspects of ubiquitous and pervasive computing such as sensor nodes, novel input/output devices, novel computing platforms, architecture modeling, and middleware.
Organic and Autonomic Computing including both theoretical and practical results on self-organization, self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing, and self-protection techniques.
Embedded systems including but not limited to architecture, communication, design methodologies, and applications.
Network Centric and Grid Computing issues with a focus on middleware.
