Notification: November 6, 2019

Conference: TBD, Feb 2020


The IEEE 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.


Authors should submit an abstract by July 30, 2019 5:00pm Anywhere on Earth (AOE). They should submit the full version of the paper by August 6, 2019, 5:00pm AOE. No extensions will be granted. The full version should be a PDF file following the submission guidelines that will be made available at the submission website. Papers should be submitted for double‐blind review. New‐idea papers as well as papers that significantly advance established areas are strongly encouraged. Submission questions should be directed to Yan Solihin: hpca2020pc@gmail.com. HPCA‐26 will also host an Industrial Paper Session presenting novel insights from industry. See the HPCA 2020 website: https://www.hpca-conf.org/2020/ for additional information about HPCA 2020 and submission details.
