Women in Computer Architecture (WICARCH) is designed to create a community for women studying and working in the field of computer architecture. Our goal is to promote women in computer architecture and increase visibility for their research and development contributions. We welcome participation from all women including students, post docs, industry researchers and developers and faculty members. To be listed in our directory, please click here.
Profiles of WICArch
The mission of this section is to profile women in computer architecture across many walks of our field, from [junior, senior] x [industry, academia].
If you would like to be profiled, would like to nominate someone to be profiled, or would like to write a profile, please let us know by firstname.lastname@example.org
Srilatha (Bobbie) Manne
Dr. Srilatha Manne, known to everyone as Bobbie, is the general chair of the upcoming ISCA conference at the 2019 FCRC. She recently joined the Quantum effort at Microsoft, after having spent 4 years at Cavium as Principal Architect, where her most re …
We actively maintain a list of women working in the field of computer architecture. The goal of this list is many-fold. First, the list services as a resource for program chairs and conference organizers to identify women to serve in key technical roles such as keynote, panels and program committees. Second, the list is designed to foster community and help women connect with other women in computer architecture. This list can be used by current and potential graduate students to find advisors and mentors. Four profiles, selected randomly, are shown below. We encourage you to browse the full directory.
University of Washington
Amrita Mazumdar is a PhD student at the University of Washington, advised by Luis Ceze and Mark Oskin. Her research interests are in computer architecture support for virtual reality and other emerging graphics workloads. Her past work has focused on designing hardware accelerators for applications such as VR video processing, near-data similarity search, and low-power computer vision. She received her MS (2017) from the University of Washington, and her BS (2014) from Columbia University.Accelerator-Based, Application-Specific and Reconfigurable Architecture, Architecture For Emerging Technologies and Applications, Datacenter-Scale Computing, Iot, Mobile and Embedded Architecture, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
Arizona State University
I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Science and Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU). I am also the Associate Director of the NSF I/UCRC Center for Embedded Systems (CES). Before joining ASU, I held a number of industrial internship positions with Intel, IBM, and Google. I am a senior member of both ACM and IEEE.
My research area lies in Computer and System Architectures. In particular, my research interests include high-performance and energy-efficient computer architectures through
- hardware heterogeneity,
- energy harvesting techniques for emerging computing devices,
- temperature and energy management for portable electronics,
- performance characterization, analysis and prediction, and
- memory subsystem designs.
I am the recipient of the 2017 NSF CAREER Award, the 2017 IEEE Young Engineer of the Year Award, the 2014 IEEEE Best of Computer Architecture Letter Award, the 2013 Science Foundation of Arizona Bisgrove Early Career Award, and the 2011-12 Intel Ph.D. Fellowship Award. My research has been supported by both industry sources and the National Science Foundation to a level over $1.8 million.
I serve on the Executive Committee of the IEEE Technical Committee on Computer Architecture from 2017-19 and am the Program Chair for the IEEE International Symposium on Workload Characterization, 2018. I completed my M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 2008 and 2012, respectively, and received a B.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University.Evaluation and Measurement Of Real Systems, Instruction, Thread and Data-Level Parallelism, Iot, Mobile and Embedded Architecture, Multiprocessor Systems, Processor, Memory, and Storage Systems Architecture
University of Toronto
Sayeh Sharify received her B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2013, and her M.A.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Toronto in 2015, where she is currently a third year Ph.D. student. Her research interests include computer architecture, machine learning, embedded systems, and reconfigurable computing. She is currently working on designing hardware accelerators for machine learning algorithms.Iot, Mobile and Embedded Architecture

Computer architecture and software systems with special emphasis on multiprocessor and multicore systems, data center architectures, and large-scale distributed systems.Datacenter-Scale Computing
We regularly organize a social gathering of women at the start of major architecture conferences (ISCA, HPCA, ASPLOS and MICRO). These meet ups help newcomers to our conferences become better integrated in the community and reduce some of the pressure and intimidation they might feel at their first conference. They provide great networking opportunities. We hope to see you at the next one!
Would you like to attend a SIGARCH-sponsored event, but cannot because the cost of child-care is prohibitive? SIGARCH provides funds for a limited number of grants that support child care for members that would like to participate in a SIGARCH-sponsored event but are unable to do so without this support. SIGARCH provides financial assistance to subsidize a variety of child-care options. View details here.
Annually, we provide a brochure of upcoming female graduates in computer architecture. The goal of this brochure is to bring greater visibility to women on the job market and to celebrate their success as PhD students. Available soon!
We organize various initiatives to better connect women in computer architecture.
