Detailed submission instructions
Please make sure that your paper satisfies ALL of the following
requirements before being submitted.
- The paper must have an abstract no more than 250 words, submitted by
Friday June 4th at 6:00PM US Eastern Time.
- You will not be allowed to submit a full paper without submitting
an abstract first.
- The paper must be original material that has not been previously
published in another conference or journal, nor is currently under

- Your submission is limited to twenty two (22)
8.5"x11" double spaced single column pages, using 11pt or larger font.
The paper must have one inch margins on both sides, top and bottom
The page limit includes everything: references, title, figures,
appendices, abstract, etc. Submissions not adhering to these
submission guidelines may be rejected by the program chair without
further review. Your paper must print satisfactorily on
both 8.5"x11" paper and A4 paper: The box containing the text should
be no larger than 6.5"x9" (16.5cm x 22.9cm).
- Papers are to be submitted for double-blind review.
Blind reviewing of papers will be done by the program committee,
assisted by outside referees. Author names as well as hints of identity
are to be removed from the submitted paper. Use care in naming your
files. Source file names, e.g., Joe.Smith.dvi, are often embedded in
the final output as readily accessible comments.
In addition, do not omit references to
provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the
context. Instead, if you are extending your own work, you need to
reference and discuss the past work in third person, as if you were
extending someone else's research. We realize in doing this that for
some papers it will still be obvious who the authors are. In this case,
the submission will not be penalized as long a concerted effort was
made to reference and describe the relationship to the prior work as if
you were extending someone else's research. For example, if your name
is Joe Smith:
In previous work [1,2], Smith
presented a new branch predictor for .... In this paper, we extend
their work by ...
 Joe Smith, "A Simple Branch Predictor for ...," Proceedings of MICRO
 Joe Smith, "A More Complicated Branch Predictor for...,"
Proceedings of MICRO 2005.

not color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the
- Please make sure that the labels on your graphs are readable
without the aid of a magnifying glass. Typically the default font sizes
on the graph axes in a program like Microsoft Excel are too small.
- Please number the pages.
- The paper must be submitted in PDF. We cannot accept any other
format, and we must be able to print the document just as we receive
it. We suggest that you use only the four widely-used printer fonts:
Times, Helvetica, Courier and Symbol.
- Please make sure that the output has been formatted for printing
on LETTER size paper. If generating the paper using "dvips", use the
option "-t letter".
- We will allow you (the authors) to view and respond to the reviews
before the program committee meeting. Please note that you will have
only a couple of days to respond.
