Detailed submission instructions
Please make sure that your paper satisfies ALL of the following requirements before being submitted. Submissions not adhering to these submission guidelines may be rejected by the program chair without further review.

  • The paper must have an abstract under 250 words.
  • The paper must be original material that has not been previously published in another conference or journal, nor is currently under review by another conference or journal. Note that you may submit material presented previously at a workshop without copyrighted proceedings.
  • Your submission is limited to twenty two (22) 8.5"x11" double spaced single column pages, using 11pt or larger font. The paper must have one inch margins on both sides, top and bottom. The page limit includes everything: references, title, figures, appendices, abstract, etc. Your paper must print satisfactorily on both Letter (8.5"x11") paper and A4 (8.27”x11.69”) paper: The box containing the text should be no larger than 6.5"x9" (16.5cm x 22.9cm).
  • Papers are to be submitted for double-blind review. Blind reviewing of papers will be done by the program committee, assisted by outside referees. Author names as well as hints of identity are to be removed from the submitted paper. Use care in naming your files. Source file names, e.g., Joe.Smith.dvi, are often embedded in the final output as readily accessible comments.
  • In addition, do not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the context. Instead, if you are extending your own work, you need to reference and discuss the past work in third person, as if you were extending someone else's research. We realize in doing this that for some papers it will still be obvious who the authors are. In this case, the submission will not be penalized as long as a concerted effort was made to reference and describe the relationship to the prior work as if you were extending someone else's research. For example, if your name is Joe Smith:

In previous work [1,2], Smith presented a new branch predictor for .... In this paper, we extend their work by ...
[1] Joe Smith, "A Simple Branch Predictor for ...," Proceedings of ISCA 2004.
[2] Joe Smith, "A More Complicated Branch Predictor for...," Proceedings of ISCA 2005.

  • Your submission must be formatted for black-and-white printers and not color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper.
  • Please make sure that the labels on your graphs are readable without the aid of a magnifying glass.
  • Please number the pages. •    The paper must be submitted in PDF. We cannot accept any other format, and we must be able to print the document just as we receive it. We suggest that you use only the four widely-used printer fonts: Times, Helvetica, Courier and Symbol.
