The annual ASPLOS (Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems) conference is “the premier forum for multidisciplinary systems research spanning computer architecture and hardware, programming languages and compilers, operating systems and networking.” In 2018, the University of Chicago will have a major presence at this interdisciplinary systems conference, including a keynote talk, five peer-reviewed papers (10 percent of all accepted papers), and a workshop. 

Seymour Goodman Professor Fred Chong will give a keynote talk on the importance of architecture, operating systems, and programming languages in realizing a practical quantum computer. (Prof. Chong is PI of a recently awarded NSF Expedition on the topic). UChicago students Haopeng Liu, Shu Wang, Nikita Mishra (PhD '17), and Bernard Dickens III will present papers done in collaboration with fellow students Guangpu Li, Chi Li, and Connor Imes under the supervision of professors Shan Lu, Henry Hoffmann, Haryadi Gunawi, and Ariel Feldman. Shan Lu now reigns as the most published author of ASPLOS papers over its four-decade history. In addition Prof. Hoffmann is the program chair of the ASPLOS Workshop on Approximate Computing (WAX).

The University of Chicago papers cover a wide range of essential systems issues from the large to small scale: detecting bugs in cloud systems, managing memory in big data applications, automating software configuration management, minimizing energy for embedded applications, and speeding up secure storage on mobile devices. In addition to presenting cutting edge research, this work demonstrates the collaborative, interdisciplinary nature of the department combining expertise on architecture, control theory, machine learning, storage systems, security, cloud computing, software reliability and program analysis. The specific papers to be presented are:

FCatch: Automatically detecting time-of-fault bugs in cloud systems

Haopeng Liu (University of Chicago); Xu Wang (Beihang University); Guangpu Li (University of Chicago); Shan Lu (University of Chicago); Feng Ye (Huawei US R&D Center); Chen Tian (Huawei US R&D Center)
