Upload Abstracts and Papers to HotCRP

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.

New at MICRO 2021: Artifact Evaluation

March 29, 2021

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!
