HPCA-19 Call for Papers (Download pdf)

(collocated with PPoPP-2013 and CGO-2013)

The International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture provides a high-quality forum for scientists and engineers to present their latest research findings in this rapidly-changing field. Authors are invited to submit papers on all aspects of high-performance computer architecture. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Processor, cache, and memory architectures
  • Parallel computer architectures
  • Multicore architectures
  • Impact of technology on architecture
  • Power-efficient architectures and techniques
  • Dependable/secure architectures
  • High-performance I/O systems
  • Embedded and reconfigurable architectures
  • Interconnect and network interface architectures
  • Architectures for cloud-based HPC
  • Innovative hardware/software trade-offs
  • Impact of compilers and system software on architecture
  • Performance modeling and evaluation
  • Architectures for emerging technology and applications

Authors should submit an abstract by Thursday, August 30, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT. They should submit the full version of the paper by Friday, September 7, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT. No extensions will be granted. The full version should be a PDF file that does not exceed 12 pages according to the instructions in http://www.hpcaconf.org/hpca19. Papers that exceed the length limit or that cannot be viewed using Adobe Reader (version 3.0 or higher) may not be reviewed. Papers should be submitted for double-blind review. We anticipate making a Best Paper award; all papers will be evaluated based on their novelty, fundamental insights, and potential for long-term impact. New-idea papers are encouraged. Submission issues should be directed to the program chair at <tullsen@cs.ucsd.edu>. Workshop and tutorial submissions should be directed to the workshop and tutorial co-chairs (mattan.erez@mail.utexas.edu, byzang@fudan.edu.cn). HPCA-19 will host an Industrial Paper Session presenting novel insights from industry (see Call for Industry Papers at http://www.hpcaconf.org/hpca19).

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings distributed to conference attendees. Papers will also be uploaded to IEEE Xplore.
