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 will be held as a global online event, broadcast from the host city of Athens, Greece.
The full MICRO symposium program (October 19–21) and workshop/tutorial program (October 18 & 22) are now available. The program includes three exciting keynotes, 94 regular papers (more than any prior MICRO), and 10 workshops/tutorials. Registration gives access to all symposium sessions, all workshops/tutorials, and all recordings that are made as part of MICRO 2021. Check the registration information page for all details. Early registration ends on Sunday, October 17, at 11:59 PM PDT, with a low rate of EUR 35 for ACM/IEEE members and EUR 20 for student and lifetime/retired members. Check out more info about this year's format, and come join us at MICRO!
The organizing and steering committees of MICRO-54, along with the technical sponsors ACM and IEEE, have considered the current state of the pandemic and the uncertainties around the globe. Based on this, this year's MICRO will be held as a fully online global event, with the broadcast being managed from the city of Athens. The main symposium will take place from Tuesday, October 19 to Thursday, October 21, while workshops and tutorials will be held on Monday, October 18 and Friday, October 22. Stay tuned for news and updates about an exciting technical week with inspiring keynotes, breaking research results in the symposium papers, and a diverse set of workshops and tutorials on hot topics in computing.
