Congratulations on having your paper accepted for publication in the proceedings of the 44th Annual International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA 2017).

ACM is the lead society for the ISCA 2017 conference and is responsible for publishing the conference proceedings. The deadline for submitting the final camera ready papers is 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on Thursday, May 1st, 2017.

Please follow all instructions closely. We appreciate your cooperation in the preparation of the proceedings.

Paper Formatting

All camera-ready papers must be submitted in printable PDF format. Your PDF file must comply with the following requirements:

  • Page size is 612.0 x 792.0 points (8.5 inches x 11 inches)
  • It should have the rights management statement and bibliographic strip on the bottom of the first page left column.
  • It should have thumbnails and be optimized for fast web viewing.
  • It should have Type 1 fonts (scalable), not Type 3 (bit-mapped). All fonts MUST be embedded within the PDF file. To help you through this process, please refer to documentation on How to Embed Your Fonts. The ACM Digital Library optimal distiller settings file is also available for Download.

Submission Instructions

All final camera ready papers must be limited to 14 pages, of which up to 13 may be dedicated to body pages. Please note that pages with ANY non-reference material will be counted as a body page. Up to 12 body pages are free; ONE additional body page can be purchased for 150 CAD. The fee for additional body page must be submitted during conference registration.

All papers must be formatted according to the instructions described in the ISCA 2017 Camera Ready Author Kit. This kit includes a template that enables you to import required indexing concepts for your article from the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS) using an indexing support tool found in the ACM Digital Library (DL) which generates the necessary TeX code once you have selected your terms (and generates XML for Word documents). It is important to provide the proper indexing information from the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS). Accurate semantic tagging provides a reader with quick content reference; facilitates the DL search for related literature; enables several DL topic functions such as aggregated SIG and journal coverage areas; and helps ACM promote your work in other online resources.

Reference linking and citation counts are facilitated by use of standard reference formats. Please adhere to the in-text citation style and reference format guidelines that we use for ACM publications. If you do not, your paper may be returned to you for proper formatting.

The ACM Copyright Paragraph must appear on the first page of each paper:
