The 35th International Symposium on Microarchitecture is the premier forum for discussing new techniques to extract high levels of instruction-level parallelism via hardware and software. The goals of this symposium are to bring together researchers in fields related to microarchitecture and instruction-level parallelism, to encourage technical interaction, and to advance the state of the art of high-performance microarchitectures and fine-grain parallel processing. This year's conference will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, a city of historical treasures, where East meets West on the blue waters of the Bosphorus. Papers are solicited in fields including the following:


·   ILP architectures and designs: superscalar, VLIW, multithreaded, …

·   Compiler techniques for instruction-level parallelism

·   Architectures and compilers for embedded processors, DSPs, ASIPs (ubiquitous computing devices, network processors, multimedia, wireless, …)

·   Hardware/software techniques for efficient systems on a single chip

·   Dynamic optimization, emulation, and object code translation

·   Advanced software and hardware speculation and prediction schemes

·   Hardware/compiler techniques for improving memory system performance

·   Hardware/compiler techniques for low-power computing

·   Theoretical foundations of instruction level parallelism

·   Novel approaches to fine-grain parallel processing


THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS JUNE 10th, 2002 There is an automatic one-week extension for late papers.  There will be no other extensions.  Please submit one electronic copy of the paper in PDF format, using our website. Notification of acceptance will occur by August 12, 2002. For more information please consult the conference website:
