SIGMICRO Status Report to SGB Kemal Ebcioglu SIGMICRO Chair IBM T.J. Watson Research Center March 19, 2005
SIGMICRO Summary Number of SIGMICRO conferences has increased from 1 to 5 Successful results Finances have shown healthy improvement Spreading the risk with multiple high quality conferences New SIGMICRO e-seminar series featuring distinguished speakers Worldwide audience – brings community together Opportunity for live technical questions from members Stable membership around 400 Election for new officers on track
Conferences (100%) Computing Frontiers 2004 (CF04): was launched in Ischia, Italy. April 14 to 16, Focused on interdisciplinary innovation in computer architecture Encouraging new idea development – outside of mainstream conferences Excellent financial results (50%) International Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO- 37), December 4 to 8, 2004 in Portland, Oregon SIGMICROs flagship conference for 37 years Again featured author rebuttals in review process (45%) Annual International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO 2004), March 21 to 24, 2004 in Palo Alto, California. Excellent financial results (33%) International Conference on Compilers, Architecture and Synthesis on Embedded Systems (CASES 2004), September 23 to 25, 2004, in Washington D.C. (100%) Symposium on Application Specific Processors (SASP) -- new April 2006, San Diego Growing out of Workshop on Application Specific Processors, associated with MICRO conference
SIGMICRO online newsletter e-Seminar series The SIGMICRO newsletter has been restarted in an online form with Erik Altman (IBM T.J. Watson Research Center) as the editor. The newsletter is organizing live e-seminars (telecon+softcopy slides) that the SIGMICRO community can listen in to, around the world Audience can ask live technical questions to the speaker. Slides+recorded audio later available on web site Brings community together Distinguished speakers in the e-seminar series, including: Guri Sohi Wen-Mei Hwu Mateo Valero John Shen (coming up)
SIGMICROs goals/challenges Making quality improvements to the Annual International Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO), the flagship conference of SIGMICRO Adding new high quality conferences to SIGMICRO's portfolio Becoming a Web resource, for teaching and research fields related to microarchitecture Establishing new student awards, to foster interest in leading edge microarchitecture research Providing computing research resources to microarchitecture researchers worldwide, with the help of the industry.
