Career Workshop for Inclusion and Diversity in Computer Architecture

Final Submission Deadline
August 28, 2022

Career Workshop for Inclusion and Diversity in Computer Architecture (CWIDCA)

October 2022, co-located with MICRO 2022, Chicago, Illinois, USA

The MICRO Career Workshop brings together diverse members of the Computer Architecture community 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 is the longest-running diversity-focused workshop in the computer architecture community.

The workshop highlights emerging and hot topics in computer architecture, but also provides opportunities for career mentoring advice, cross-disciplinary research, networking, and finding internships and career opportunities in computer architecture. The workshop contains a mix of technical presentations and career-focused presentations, followed by panel sessions from academic and industry leaders, student posters and presentations, and informal activities to provide mentoring and guidance specifically designed to assist students of this important constituency as they get started in their careers.

The workshop includes a student research poster session, a panel, and presentations by prestigious speakers in the community. Keynotes and invited talks will cover the latest research trends in computer architecture. The workshop provides a forum to tackle controversial contemporary topics that students might not have an opportunity to discuss otherwise, such as racial injustice, mental health, handling pandemics challenges, and getting help.

Poster Submission Guidelines:

Posters are solicited for research related to any aspect of computer architecture. All researchers in the computer architecture fields are welcome to submit their work for presentation at this workshop. Each poster abstract will be reviewed by members of the community. Posters will not be published and hence can be under submission for other conferences or workshops.

Each submission should be formatted as an extended abstract, describing the research to be presented in the poster. The length of the extended abstract should be at most 2 single-column pages (formatted into the US letter size of 8.5 x 11 inches with fonts no smaller than 10 point size), including all figures. References are not counted against the page limitation.

The extended abstract must include the names, affiliations, and email addresses of all authors and should be submitted as a single PDF file to EasyChair (
