After the first Championship Value Prediction hosted at ACM/IEEE ISCA’18, the Championship Value Prediction (CVP) organizing committee is proud to announce that CVP is now an all-year competition.

The championship invites
contestants to submit their value prediction code to participate in this
competition. Contestants are given a fixed storage budget (8KB, 32KB and Unlimited tracks) to
implement their best predictors on a common evaluation framework including industry traces. An online leaderboard is provided to keep track of top-performers.

 

Objective:

The goal for this competition is to compare different value
prediction algorithms in a common framework. Predictors will be
evaluated for all instructions producing output values and must be implemented within a fixed storage budget as
specified in the competition rules.

The simple and transparent
evaluation process enables dissemination of results and techniques to
the larger computer architecture community and allows independent
verification of results.  CVP also provides a good framework for CS and ECE students looking
for an interesting project that may have real-world
implication. Indeed, in a context where value prediction has been regaining some interest
from both academia and industry, CVP has potential to impact future
processor designs.

Format :

Submissions should include the predictor code as well as a 4-pages write-up describing the algorithms and summarizing predictor storage. Submissions are welcome at any time and will undergo a short review process to check for compliance with the competition rules. Note that novelty is not a strict requirement, for example, a contestant may submit his/her previously
published design or make incremental enhancements to a previously
proposed design.

All source code, write-ups and performance results will be made publicly available through the CVP website.

Contingent on the number of submissions, the CVP organizing committee pledges to organize workshops co-located with computer architecture conferences where contestants will be invited to present their work and top performers will be recognized.
