the 43rd Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO-43

December 4, 2010

Atlanta, GA, USA



[ UCAS-6 Updates ]

  -The best paper were recommended to publish in IEEE Computer Architecture Letters

   "Early Experience with Profiling and Optimizing Distributed Shared Cache Performance on Tilera’s Tile Processor"  

  -Keynote speaker: Prof. Sudhakar Yalmanchili, Georgia Institute of Technology 

                              "Software Challenges for Heterogeneous Architectures"

  -Final program is available

  -Location: Klaus 2443 (Klaus Advanced Computing Building at Georgia Tech)

  -Presentation+Q&A: 25+3 min. for regular papers and 15+2 min. for WIP papers

   -Regarding registration, hotel information and student travel grant, go to MICRO-43

  -Selected 1~2 best papers will be considered for publication in IEEE Computer Architecture Letters (CAL).

This workshop looks forward to bring together unique research in all areas of chip and system design. We are looking forward to assembling a program with unique technologies, circuits and architectures that your academic or industry team is working on.


UCAS-6 will have Regular sessions (2 main topics: computer architecture and VLSI design) and WIP (Work in Progress) session. For more details, please see the Call for Papers.



** Selected 1~2 best papers will be considered for publication in IEEE Computer Architecture Letters (CAL).


** Selected papers from previous UCAS were published in an edited book titled "Unique Chips and Systems". Selected papers from recent UCAS (including UCAS-6) will be published as another edited book. Details of the of the Unique Chips and Systems book can be found here.
