The 15th International Symposium on

Welcome to HPCA-15

Call for Papers




The International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture provides a high-quality forum for scientists and engineers to present their latest research findings in this rapidly-changing field. Authors are invited to submit papers on all aspects of high-performance computer architecture. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


- Processor architectures

- Cache and memory architectures

- Parallel computer architectures

- Impact of technology on architecture

- Power-efficient architectures and techniques

- Reliable architectures

- Secure architectures

- High-performance I/O systems

- Embedded and reconfigurable architectures

- Special purpose processors and accelerators

- Interconnect and on-chip network architectures

- Network processor architectures

- Innovative hardware/software trade-offs

- Impact of compilers and operating systems on architecture

- Performance modeling and evaluation


Authors should submit an abstract by Sunday, August 10, 2008, 11:59pm EDT. They should submit the full version of the paper by Sunday, August 17, 2008, 11:59pm EDT. No extensions will be granted. The full version should be a PDF file formatted according to the submission instructions. Papers that do not adhere to the formatting instructions or that cannot be viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader (version 3.0 or higher) may not be reviewed. Additionally, papers should be submitted for blind review. Submission issues should be directed to the Program Chair at We anticipate making a Best Paper award; all papers will be considered for nomination. Papers will be evaluated based on their novelty, fundamental insights, and potential for long-term contribution. New-idea papers are encouraged.


HPCA will host an Industrial Paper Session presenting novel insights from industry (see Call for Industry Papers and direct submissions to Workshop and tutorial proposals should be sent to the Workshop/Tutorial Chair at
