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, and we aim to continue this tradition at MICRO-53. In 2020, MICRO goes to Athens, Greece.


MICRO-53 Deadlines Extended

The MICRO-53 committees recognize the difficulties that the COVID-19 pandemic puts on everyone’s shoulders around the globe. As a response to these difficulties and as an effort to relieve the stress on all authors, MICRO is extending the paper submission deadlines and corresponding timeline, as shown on the conference website. We hope that everyone stays safe and healthy, following the instructions of the World Health Organization and local authorities.
