Paper Evaluation Objectives

The committee will make every effort to judge each submitted paper on its own merits. There will be no target acceptance rate. We expect to accept a wide range of papers with appropriate expectations for evaluation. The conference values papers that deliver value to the body of architecture knowledge, including those that build on significant past work with strong evaluations, as well as those that open new areas with less rigorous evaluation.

Formatting Requirements

PLEASE READ the formatting requirements document here:
Submission Guidelines

To maintain uniformity across submissions, all submissions to ISCA-41 must use the same "standard" double-column single-spaced format described formatting document above. Submissions that violate these instructions may not be reviewed, at the discretion of the program chair, to ensure review process that is fair to all potential authors. Changes from last year include the following:

  • Papers are limited to 11 pages, not including references.
  • No page limit for references (use as much space as you need).
  • Each reference must specify all authors (no et al.).

In addition to detailed formatting instructions, the submission guideline document also gives guidance regarding authorship, citations, and conflicts-of-interest.

If you are using LATEX to typeset your paper, then we suggest that you use the template available at the location listed below:
