Attached are the slides from my talk at the "SPEC Benchmark Workshop 2009", described at http://www.spec.org/workshops/2009/austin/program.html.
The program drew about 100 people. There were 9 papers accepted and published by Springer, out of a field of about twice as many entries. The papers were written by 10 authors from industry and 16 from academia.
My criterion for success was: "How many people are sleeping during my early-Sunday-morning talk?" During the talk, I managed to wake up all but 1 of the sleepers, so I guess it was successful.

The article was published by Springer in a book - preview here: Springerlink
