YArch 2021: The Third Young Architect Workshop
April 16, 2021 (Co-located with ASPLOS)


Submissions Due: February 10, 2021

YArch is a workshop for junior researchers with an interest in computer architecture (broadly defined) who may have early research ideas they’d like to get feedback on. The goal of YArch is to facilitate contacts between junior computer architecture researchers and more senior researchers in the field. It is also an opportunity to get feedback on early research ideas. 

Two-page double-blind submissions should describe the scope of the problem, the proposed idea/solution, the intended evaluation methodology, and related work.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

– Datacenter systems

– Hardware acceleration

– Memory hierarchy

– Virtualization

– Security

– Microarchitecture

– GPUs

– Parallel architectures

– Emerging technologies

To qualify, a researcher must have completed fewer than 3 years of graduate studies. YArch is primarily targeting early graduate students in computer science/engineering, but exceptional undergrads with research experience are also welcome to submit ideas. Conference/workshop registration fees for presenters of accepted submissions will be covered.

More information can be found on the workshop’s website:
