IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture®

The IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture® is the premier forum for presenting, discussing, and debating innovative microarchitecture ideas and techniques for advanced computing and communication systems. This symposium brings together researchers in fields related to microarchitecture, compilers, chips, and systems for technical exchange on traditional microarchitecture topics and emerging research areas. The MICRO community has enjoyed a close interaction between academic researchers and industrial designers.

MICRO-52: October 12-16, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio

  • Abstract Deadline: March 29, 2019 at 4:59 PM PDT

The MICRO Test of Time (ToT) Award Committee is soliciting nominations for the fifth MICRO ToT Award to be given at the International Symposium on Microarchitecture in October 2019, to be held in Columbus, Ohio. This award recognizes the most influential papers published in past MICRO conferences that have had significant impact in the field.

The award will recognize an influential MICRO paper whose influence is still felt 18-22 years after its initial publication. In other words, the award will be given to at most one paper that was published at MICRO conferences in any of the years N-22, N-21, N-20, N-19, or N-18. This year, N = 2019, so only papers published at MICRO conferences held in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, or 2001 are eligible. An eligible paper that has received at least 100 citations (according to Google Scholar) is automatically nominated, but explicit nominations of such papers are still encouraged.
