presented at the Awards Banquet at the 2016 International Symposium on
Computer Architecture (ISCA). The IEEE Computer Society administers the award.
Eligibility: The award is open to any individual who has completed his/her PhD
degree after April 15, 2010 (within last 6 years). At the discretion of the
awards committee, eligibility may be adjusted for documented family-related or
medical leaves from employment. The winner of the award will be someone who
has made an outstanding, innovative research contribution or contributions to
the field of Computer Architecture.
Anyone can nominate a candidate (but no self-nominations). The following
information must be provided at the time of nomination:
1. Name/email of person making the nomination.
2. Name/email of candidate for whom the award is recommended.
3. A statement by the nominator (maximum of 500 words long) as to why
the nominee deserves the award. As the award is for outstanding contributions
in research, the statement and supporting letters should address the
contributions and why they are both outstanding and significant.
4. CV of the candidate.
5. The names and email addresses of two persons who the nominator has
contacted to supply supporting letters.
All materials, including the two supporting letters, should be sent to the Chair
