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-54. In 2021, MICRO goes to Athens, Greece.
MICRO 2021 program co-chairs Aamer Jaleel (NVIDIA) and Jishen Zhao (University of California, San Diego) have released this year's call for papers, along with the guidelines for submission and LaTeX paper templates. Paper abstracts must be uploaded on HotCRP no later than April 9, 2021 at 11:59 PM PDT, and full papers are due on April 16, 2021 at 11:59 PM PDT. Good luck with your submissions!
This year, MICRO 2021 is offering artifact evaluations. After MICRO decisions are released, all accepted papers will be given the option of submitting their artifacts for review, and authors will be given the option to release their artifacts and add a two-page appendix to camera-ready papers describing the artifacts. The process is being led by evaluation co-chairs Samira Khan (University of Virginia) and Gennady Pekhimenko (University of Toronto), and is modeled after the successful artifact evaluations done at this year's ASPLOS conference. Check out the artifact evaluation page for more information on the optional process, and its many benefits!
MICRO 2021 workshop/tutorial co-chairs Lisa Wu Wills (Duke University) and Dionisios Pnevmatikatos (National Technical University of Athens) have released this year's call for workshops and tutorials. Proposals are due on June 10, 2021. We look forward to your ideas!
