The 18th IEEE International Symposium on High Performance Computer Architecture

Submission Instructions

Reviewing is hard, time-consuming work and is done by volunteers on their “free” time.  In an effort to respect the reviewers’ efforts and in the interest of fairness to all prospective authors, we are requesting that all submissions to HPCA 18 follow the formatting rules detailed in the templates that follow. Please do not change the formatting rules trying to squeeze more material in your submission. Submissions that do so may not be reviewed.

Please refer to the following files for detailed formatting instructions.

·         Example submission paper with detailed instructions: PDF

·         Template files for Latex and Word: ZIP

The above templates are based on the formatting templates for another conference*. Modifications were made for HPCA 2012. We are responsible for any typos and inconsistencies. Please let the web chair or PC know when you spot any.

The paper may have up to 28 pages. (Note: increase from 20-page limit in call for papers.)

Double blind review: HPCA reviewing is double blind, in that authors do not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Please see the example submission paper above for detailed instructions on how to preserve anonymity. Avoid providing information that may identify the authors and/or their institution/company. Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors.

Conflict Responsibilities:  It is the primary author's responsibility to ensure that all authors on their paper have registered their conflicts into the paper reviewing site. Conflicts are needed to resolve assignments to reviewers. If a paper is found to have an undeclared conflict that causes a problem, the paper may be summarily rejected.   Please declare all authors upfront. We cannot add/remove authors once a paper is accepted.

Dual/Double Submissions: By submitting a manuscript to HPCA, the authors guarantee that the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in substantially similar form in a conference or a journal. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either is under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the HPCA 2012 review period to any of the following: another conference, a workshop, or a journal. The authors also attest that they did not submit substantially similar submissions to HPCA 2012. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection. Papers accepted for publication in IEEE Computer Architecture Letters can be submitted to HPCA 2012.

To submit papers, please proceed to the paper submission site.
