The 44th Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture, 2011

Submission Instructions

Reviewing is hard, time-consuming work and is done by volunteers on their “free” time.  In an effort to respect the reviewers’ efforts and in the interest of fairness to all prospective authors, we are requesting that all submissions to MICRO 44 follow the formatting rules detailed in the templates that follow. Please do not change the formatting rules trying to squeeze more material in your submission. Submissions that do so will not be reviewed.

Please refer to the following files for detailed formatting instructions.

·         Example submission paper with detailed instructions: PDF

·         Latex/Word template files: ZIP

The above templates are based on the formatting templates for another conference. Modifications were made for MICRO 2011. We are responsible for any typos and inconsistencies. Please let the PCs know when you spot any.

The paper may have up to 26 pages.

Double blind review: MICRO reviewing is double blind, in that authors do not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Please see the example submission paper above for detailed instructions on how to preserve anonymity. Avoid providing information that may identify the authors and/or their institution/company. Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.

Conflict Responsibilities:  It is the primary author's responsibility to ensure that all authors on their paper have registered their conflicts into the paper reviewing site. Conflicts are needed to resolve assignments to reviewers. If a paper is found to have an undeclared conflict that causes a problem, the paper may be summarily rejected.   Please declare all authors upfront. We cannot add/remove authors once a paper is accepted.

Dual/Double Submissions: By submitting a manuscript to MICRO, the authors guarantee that the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form in a conference or a journal. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either is under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the MICRO 2011 review period to any of the following: another conference, a workshop, or a journal. The authors also attest that they did not submit substantially similar submissions to MICRO 2011. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection. Papers accepted for publication in IEEE Computer Architecture Letters can be submitted to MICRO 2011.
