The 51st 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 and we aim to continue this tradition at MICRO-51. In 2018, MICRO will be held in Fukuoka, Japan.
The 51st International Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO) invites participation in the ACM Student Research Competition (SRC). Sponsored by ACM and Microsoft Research, the SRC is a forum for undergraduates and graduate students to share their research results, exchange ideas, and improve their communication skills while competing for prizes. Students accepted to participate in the SRC are entitled to a travel grant (up to $500) to help cover travel expenses. The top 3 undergraduate and graduate winners will receive the following prizes:
Monetary prizes of $500, $300, and $200, respectively.
A framed Grand Finalist certificate.
The names of the winners and their placement will be posted on the web site.
In addition, the first place winner in each category (undergraduate, graduate) will receive an invitation to participate in the SRC Grand Finals, an on-line round of competitions among the first place winners of individual conference-hosted SRCs. The top three graduate and undergraduate Grand Finalists will receive an additional $500, $300, and $200, respectively, along with Grand Finalist medals (gold, silver, bronze). Grand Finalists and their advisors will be invited to the Annual ACM Awards Banquet for an all-expenses-paid trip, where they will be recognized for their accomplishments, along with other prestigious ACM award winners, including the winner of the Turing Award.
The SRC consists of two rounds: a poster session and a presentation session. Submissions recommended for acceptance by the selection committee will be invited to a first-round poster session to be held during Micro-51. A panel of judges will select a number of finalists from the poster session held at the symposium, who will be invited to a second-round SRC presentation session at MICRO 2018 and compete for the prizes. The evaluation will be concentrated on the quality of both visual and oral presentation, the research methods, and the significance of contribution. You can find more information on the ACM Student Research Competition site (https://src.acm.org/).
