Call for Papers:  *IEEE MICRO Special Issue on Compiling for Accelerators*

*Submission Deadline*: December 15, 2021

*Scope and Topics*

Hardware accelerators are rapidly becoming a central architectural feature
to improve computation power performance. CPU ISA extensions,
custom-designed engines, and FPGA-based systems have been proposed as
acceleration architectures to improve program execution in scientific,
machine-learning, database, and other application domains. Although much
effort has been devoted to the design of accelerators, there is still a
large gap of knowledge on how to make effective use of and compile for such
architectures. This special issue of IEEE Micro will explore academic and
industrial research on topics that relate to compiling for accelerators.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

●      Compiling for CPU ISA extensions

●      Code generation for neural processing units

●      Compiling for neural network training

●      Programming linear algebra engines

●      Code generation and programming for database accelerators

●      Processor-accelerator interface design and programmability

●      Compiling for energy efficiency

●      Pattern matching and code replacement for acceleration instructions

●      High-level synthesis design of custom engines

●      DSL and parallel programming models for accelerators

●      Compiler intermediate representation (IR) and optimization
techniques for accelerators

●      Programming FPGAs for custom computing engines

●      Tools and libraries to support code generation for accelerators

*Important Dates*

●      Submission Deadline: December 15, 2021

●      Initial notifications: March 15, 2022

●      Revised papers due: April 8, 2022

●      Final notifications: May 13, 2022

●      Final versions due: May 31, 2022

●      Publication: July/August 2022
