The 34th International Symposium on Microarchitecture is the premiere forum for discussing new techniques to extract high levels of instruction-level parallelism via hardware and software. The goals of this symposium are to bring together researchers in fields related to microarchitecture and instruction-level parallelism, to encourage technical interaction, and to advance the state of the art of high-performance microarchitectures and fine-grain parallel processing. Papers are solicited in fields including the following:

  • ILP architectures and designs: superscalar, VLIW, multithreaded, ...
  • Compiler techniques for instruction-level parallelism
  • Architectures and compilers for embedded processors, DSPs (imaging, graphics, low power, etc.)
  • Dynamic optimization, emulation, and object code translation
  • Advanced software and hardware speculation and prediction schemes
  • Hardware/compiler techniques for improving memory system performance
  • Hardware/software techniques for efficient systems on a single chip
  • Hardware/software techniques for fine-grain parallel processing
  • THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS JUNE 15th, 2001 There is an automatic, one week extension for late papers. There will be no other extensions. Submit one electronic copy of the paper in postscript or PDF format. Please visit the website for paper format guidelines and submission instructions. In order to guarantee the success of your electronic submissions please make sure that your postscript submission can be previewed via the ghostview tool. Notification of acceptance will occur by August 13, 2001.
