Industry Track Overview

The discussion in this forum is expected to educate the wider computer architecture community on the challenges facing the industry and to encourage them to investigate solutions. The session will include a small number of papers selected based on depth and relevance to the HPCA audience. Architects, designers, and developers involved in some aspect of industrial computer systems design and development are invited to submit a paper describing existing, planned, or canceled products, as well as new challenges, issues, and opportunities in next-generation computer systems. The paper needs to provide insights and results that are unique to industry and that make it clearly distinguishable from a regular paper.

Submission Guidelines

Authors should submit an abstract by July 28, 2023. They should submit the full version of the paper by August 4, 2023. No extensions will be granted. The full version should be a PDF file following HPCA 2024 submission guidelines. Papers should be submitted for double-blind review. The company or product name in question need not be obscured, but no references should be made to individual author identities.

Please take note of the following guidelines for the industry track:

  1. The goal of the HPCA industry track is to publish papers written by industry authors with content related to an industrial product / process. This includes both existing products and planned products, even if the product was cancelled, as long as interesting insights and learned lessons are presented in the paper.
  2. Examples are papers that describe a product, papers that characterize a product, papers that describe some interesting component of a product, papers that provide some insights on challenges faced by industry, etc.
  3. Papers must have the first author and most authors be from industry. Papers may include co-authors from academia, provided that the content is clearly related to an industrial product or process. Papers whose scope is not clearly related to a product are not appropriate for the industry track and will be rejected. Such papers should be submitted to the regular track even if authors are from industry.
  4. Papers will be held to the same standards of quality as regular track submissions.
