Building on the success of the first seven Wild and Crazy Idea
sessions, ASPLOS again seeks to provide an intoxicating counterpoint
to its main technical program, by devoting an entire session to
presenters daring enough to offer publicly a wild, forward-looking
idea. While the wild-and-crazy talks won't try to answer all questions
they may raise, they will excel in fresh insights, surprising ideas,
and identifying hidden trends.
The Wild and Crazy Idea session is the voice of more forward-looking,
but less developed, material. The goal is to free presenters from the
reins of quantitative analysis, thus making it easier to feel the joy of
revolutionary (as opposed to incremental) research. As such, revolutionary
research should inspire, not seek to recommend a concrete design.
In format, the session will remain an 8-minute madness: a
session of short talks on topics loosely consistent with
ASPLOS—pretty much anything related to computer architecture,
operating systems, and programming languages. Topics should
stretch the discipline; looking into new areas, new technologies, or
new ideas. Talks will be chosen from one-page
Thanks to an anonymous donor, the authors of the best idea, as
selected by the session chair will be awarded a modest cash prize.
Again, remember that we are looking for new ideas, insights,
concepts and problem formulations, not for definitive, polished
answers to long-standing problems. While simple "numbers" are ok,
speakers will have to convince the community with insights that their
forward-looking idea is good.
