Micro’s Top Picks from the Computer Architecture Conferences
Special Issue of IEEE Micro
May/June 2016
Paper submission deadline: October 16, 2015, 6:00 pm EDT
Submission website: https://toppicks16.egr.duke.edu/

IEEE Micro will publish its yearly “Micro’s Top Picks from the Computer
Architecture Conferences” as its May/June 2016 issue. This issue collects some
of this year’s most significant research papers in computer architecture based
on novelty and potential for long-term impact. Any computer architecture paper
(not a combination of papers) published in the top conferences of 2015
(including MICRO-48) is eligible. IEEE Micro also distinguishes a number of
papers as IEEE Micro Top Pick Honorable Mentions.

The Top Picks committee 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. Please
concatenate the following two documents into a single PDF file that is

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 of
the work to have long-term impact, clearly articulating why and how it will
influence other researchers and/or industry.

2. The final version of the original conference paper.

Submissions that do not follow this format will not be reviewed. The first page
of the submission 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 and date of publication.

Upon acceptance, authors will receive further instructions on how to prepare
final papers that conform to IEEE Micro’s guidelines (5000 words for the final
paper in IEEE Micro).
