Call for Nominations: 2020 MICRO Test of Time Award

Deadline: November 1, 2020
Details and List of Eligible Papers: https://www.microarch.org/tot/cfn.html

The MICRO Test of Time (ToT) Award Committee is soliciting nominations for the seventh MICRO ToT Award. This award recognizes the most influential papers published in past MICRO conferences that have had significant impact in the field.

The award will recognize an influential MICRO paper whose influence is still felt 18-22 years after its initial publication. In other words, the award will be given to at most one paper that was published at MICRO conferences in any of the years N-22, N-21, N-20, N-19, or N-18. This year, N = 2020, so only papers published at MICRO conferences held in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, or 2002 are eligible. An eligible paper that has received at least 100 citations (according to Google Scholar) is automatically nominated, but explicit nominations of such papers are still encouraged.

Nominating a Paper

To nominate a paper, send an email to micro-tot-award-nominations@googlegroups.com by November 1, 2020, with the following:

2. A 100-word (maximum) nomination statement, describing why the paper deserves the Test of Time Award
3. The name, title, affiliation of the nominator, and if appropriate, the relationship of the nominator to the authors
