Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems (ASPLOS)


The International Conference on Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Operating Systems provides a high-quality forum for scientists and engineers to present their latest research findings in these rapidly changing fields. It has captured some of the major computer systems innovations of the past 15 years (e.g., RISC and VLIW processors, small and large-scale multiprocessors, clusters and networks-of-workstations, optimizing compilers, RAID, and network-storage system designs). ASPLOS is co-sponsored with SIGARCH and SIGOPS.

ASPLOS Steering Committee Composition
The ASPLOS steering committee is constituted by the following members:

  • Chair and Past Chair of SIGARCH (the 50% SIG sponsor),
  • Vice Chairs of each of the two 25% SIG sponsors (SIGOPS and SIGPLAN),
  • current and past two ASPLOS General Chairs, and
  • current and past two ASPLOS Program Chairs.

    The membership of the steering committee changes each year following the ASPLOS conference, at which time the General and Program Chair from two conferences earlier are replaced with the General and Program Chair from the current year’s conference. SIG representatives serve ex officio, and have terms coterminous with their SIG positions.

    The General Chair of ASPLOS two years previously chairs the Steering Committee; that is, the GC of ASPLOS in Year N takes over as SC Chair just after ASPLOS N+1, and serves until ASPLOS N+2 is over.
