We all love good ol’ architecture research! From a germ of an idea, through a thorny path of its implementation and validation, to its publication. With its publication, hopefully comes its adoption. With its adoption, grows our reputation. With our reputation, come to us many good things including fantastic colleagues and lucrative grants! Therefore, it ought to bother us a great deal when good ideas get no adoption. And that’s why we care deeply about understanding and eliminating barriers to successful adoption. In this blog post, we discuss “Artifact Evaluation” to foster wider adoption of computer architecture ideas.
