27th Annual International Symposium on Microarchitecture




with special emphasis on Instruction-Level Parallel Processing San Jose, California November 30 - December 2, 1994 Co-sponsored by IEEE TC-MICRO and ACM SIGMICRO Important dates: SUBMISSION: JUNE 21, Acceptance: AUG. 23, Final version: SEP. 20 ______________________________________________________________________________

For the past 26 years, the annual MICRO conference has provided a key venue for the dissemination of ideas and advances in the field of computer microarchitecture research. MICRO has recently become the premier forum for discussing and debating issues relating to instruction-level parallelism; with multiple-issue processor technology continuing to develop rapidly, this year's conference promises to be an invigorating and rewarding continuation of this conversation. We invite all interested parties to participate in this meeting in San Jose, California, to discuss the many varied aspects of microarchitecture design and instruction-level parallel processing.

The conference seeks original papers concerning all aspects of microarchitecture, including implementation of and compilation for VLIW, superscalar, superpipelined, and multiprocessor systems. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

This conference has a long history of promoting the free exchange of ideas and of encouraging and supporting evolving research. Therefore, authors are encouraged to submit works that may still be in progress. All papers will be refereed by members of the program committee who are familiar with the topic and by outside referees, and papers will be accepted as either full or short papers.

DEALINE FOR SUBMISSION OF PAPERS IS JUNE 21, 1994. Five copies of the original manuscript should be sent to the program chair. Papers should be concise, and must not exceed 5000 words. The identification of the primary author, including name, affiliation, address, e-mail address, phone number, and FAX number, should appear on the title page, along with a 100-word abstract and five keywords. Notification of acceptance or rejection will occur by August 23, 1994. The camera ready copy of the accepted papers will be due on September 20, 1994.

Proposals for special sessions (panel discussions and working group discussions) are welcome, and should be sent to the general chair by June 21, 1994.
