MICRO 2020 Moving Online

Until science and technology free humanity from the stress and the consequences of the pandemic, we will have to keep using science and technology to meet with our colleagues and share our research results only online. Our research community is looking forward to the time when we will be able again to meet in person, see each other's eyes, chat over coffee, and debate over wine.

The MICRO 2020 symposium will be held as a global online event, to allow everyone from around the world to participate and enjoy the experience. Details about the technical program and the registration and participation procedures will be announced during the coming weeks. The committees of MICRO 2020 wish you are all staying well and safe.

On behalf of the steering and organizing committees of MICRO 2020,
—Dimitris Gizopoulos, General Chair
   Jun Yang and Mattan Erez, Program Co-Chairs

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. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the MICRO 2020 edition will be a global online event. The Athens edition of MICRO has been rescheduled for 2021.
