Call for Posters:
The MICRO Career Workshop will bring together women and under-represented minorities at different levels in academia, industry, research, government and students to promote the recruitment, retention and progression of women and under-represented groups with research interests in computer architecture.

The workshop will highlight emerging and hot topics in computer architecture, but also provide opportunities for cross-disciplinary research, networking, and career advice and mentoring. The workshop will contain a mix of technical presentations and panel sessions given by academic and industry leaders as well as informal activities to provide mentoring for students as they get started in their careers.

The workshop will include a student research poster session, career panels, advice on careers in academia, industry research, government, or deciding to start your own company, and a speed mentoring session. Keynotes and invited talks will cover the latest research trends in computer architecture.

There will be a limited amount of financial assistance available for attending the workshop. Details about this will be forthcoming soon.
