The Third Data Prefetching Championship (DPC3) is a competition for data prefetching algorithms. Contestants will be given a fixed storage budget to implement their best prefetching algorithms on a common evaluation framework provided by the DPC3 organizing committee.


The goal for this competition is to compare different data prefetching algorithms in a common framework. Prefetchers for L1, L2, and L3 data caches must be implemented within a fixed storage budget as specified in the competition rules. Submissions will be evaluated based on their performance on a set of benchmarks using the framework provided by the organizing committee.

Submission Requirements

Each contestant is allowed a maximum of three submissions to the competition. Each submission should include the following an abstract, a paper and prefetcher code. Details are available at the workshop webpage:
