SIGMICRO aims to stimulate the advancement of the state-of-the-art in microarchitecture research. For over 35 years, the annual MICRO conference sponsored by SIGMICRO has been a key forum for presenting major breakthroughs in computer architecture, and has established itself as the premier conference on instruction-level parallelism. The SIGMICRO newsletter publishes twice a year as a benefit of the SIG. Also, members have access privileges to the proceedings of any SIGMICRO-sponsored conference at the ACM Digital Library. SIGMICRO's long term goals toward furthering the state of the art in the field include:
ACM SIGMICRO is the right professional organization to belong to, if you are a microarchitect, microprogrammer, advanced compiler designer, or a researcher/developer of superscalar, pipelined, or fine-grain parallel computer architectures, or if you are interested in learning more about such microarchitecture topics.
