Call for Participation:

uArch Workshop

Applications for funding to attend the Third Annual Undergrad Architecture Mentoring (uArch) Workshop and International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA) are now open. The funding will cover the registration fee for attending the workshop and conference.

The workshop will be held virtually as part of ISCA 2021, and is aimed at undergraduate and early master’s students with an interest in computer architecture. We expect the workshop will most benefit students who will receive their undergraduate degree in 2022 or 2023. Women and people from underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply for funding. The workshop:

  • Introduces students to graduate research and career opportunities in the field of computer architecture,

  • Provides sessions and panels with professors and current students on how to apply for and survive graduate school, in addition to covering how to navigate the architecture research landscape effectively,

  • Offers interactive mentoring and networking sessions with professors in the field of computer architecture, and

  • Connects students with established seniors architects in academia and industry and peers in graduate school.

Selected applicants will have the opportunity to participate in the entire program of the workshop and ISCA conference.
