Call for Papers – Special Issue of IEEE Micro:

Micro’s TOP PICKS from the Computer Architecture Conferences
May/June 2014

Deadlines: Abstract: October 11th, 2013, 4:59:59 pm EDT

Publication Date: May/June 2014

IEEE Micro will publish its yearly “Micro’s Top Picks from the Computer
Architecture Conferences” as its May / June 2014 issue. This issue collects
some of this year’s most significant research papers in computer
architecture based on novelty and long-term impact. Any computer
architecture paper (not a combination of papers) published in the top
conferences of 2013 (including MICRO-46) is eligible.

Top Picks will attempt to recognize those significant and insightful papers
that have the potential to influence the work of computer architects for
years to come. To simplify reviewing, there is a mandatory format for
submissions. The submission website allows uploading two documents per
submission. Please upload the following two documents separately as a single

1. A three-page, two-column document using 10-point type. The first two
pages should summarize the paper. The third page should argue for the
potential for the work to have long-term impact.

2. The final version of the original conference paper.

Submissions that do not follow this format will not be reviewed. The first
document should contain the names of the authors with a footnote that
contains the title of the original conference paper, with the full name of
the conference, page numbers, and date of publication. Authors will receive
further instructions upon acceptance.
