Call for Papers

The IEEE 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.

Authors should submit an abstract by July 30, 2019 5:00pm Anywhere on Earth (AOE). They should submit the full version of the paper by August 6, 2019, 5:00pm AOE. No extensions will be granted. The full version should be a PDF file following the submission guidelines that will be made available at the submission website. Papers should be submitted for double-blind review. New-idea papers as well as papers that significantly advance established areas are strongly encouraged. Submission questions should be directed to Yan Solihin <>. HPCA-26 will also host an Industrial Paper Session presenting novel insights from industry. See the HPCA 2020 website: TBD for additional information about HPCA 2020 and submission details.
