Special Issue of IEEE Micro: Micro’s Top Picks from the 2016 Computer Architecture Conferences—call-for-papers
May/June 2017

Submission Deadline: September 19, 2016 (11:59:59 pm EDT)
Author Notification: December 20, 2016
Final Papers Due: January 23, 2017
Publication Date: May/June 2017

IEEE Micro will publish its yearly “Micro’s Top Picks from the Computer Architecture Conferences” as its May / June 2017 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 2016 (including MICRO-49) is eligible. The Top Picks committee will 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. The submission website allows uploading two documents per submission. Please upload the following two documents separately as a single submission:

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. In the third page, please also include what the citation of your paper would be if it won the test of time award in 10 years.

2. The final version of the original conference paper.

Submissions that do not follow this format will not be reviewed. The first document 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, page numbers, and date of publication.

Authors of accepted papers will receive further instructions on how to prepare the final papers to conform to IEEE Micro’s guidelines. Final papers should not exceed 5,000 words including references, with each average-size figure counting as 250 words toward this limit. Papers must have at least 30% new content compared to the original conference publication. Final papers will be edited for structure, style, clarity, and readability.
